Finished Product

Starting out with some recycled cardboard, duct tape and a broken toy truck, they completed their homemade robot. They were super proud of themselves as was I.

They were able to stick the refurbished car inside the cardboard robot. Where the wheels used to be on the car, they attached some pipe cleaners with handy dandy duct tape to make the arms spin.

This was a great project that encouraged:

  • creativity
  • fine motor skills
  • open ended play
  • basic understanding of how an electronic toy works

Here is a video of the robot in action. Look how proud they are!
