1. When you buy space derby kits, also get CARRIERS for the lines.
2. Set up a track with FISHING LINE between LONG BANQUET TABLES. Use two tables at each end. Set one up normally; put the other on top of it on its side. Wind the fishing line around the top table and put the carriers on the lines.
3. Have the boys wind up their rockets for trial runs. For variety, put planets on the floor and race to those, instead.
