I have two boys so all things Robots are a hit with them. They could not wait to dig in and create these.
All of the projects small parts come in little baggies and then larger things and papers are just in the box with them. We have three craft projects this month.
First up was the ArtBot and my older son decided he wanted to do this one.
It was pretty easy with adhering the pens to the plastic cup and then putting the hexbug under the cup. It is not a fast process but you can see how it starts to create patterns and art on the paper. It reminded me of like a spirograph and the art turned out fun and squiggly.
Next up was the MagnetBot and was also fun and easy to do. My son decorated the container and then we took turns running it through the maze.
He was very serious in his design.
We used the lid of a box and found it best to hold the lid up and take turns running the magnet across the bottom. I will say my son is a better driver then I am when it comes to this.
Final project was the Glidebot. We had to save this one until last since it had us cutting up the box for the robots body.
My younger son decorating this robot. He too was very serious in his design.
Once all done, we placed the suction cup on the window and took turns climbing the robot up and down. It really surprises me how these old school type toys can hold his attention for long periods of time. He can’t wait to show all of his friends.
Another super fun monthly box from Green Kid Crafts. We spent a lot of time designing and working on the after parts of these projects. My older son said they were the best since they didn’t take long to create and he then could play with the finished projects. He is not as big a crafty kid as my younger one and I am. However, with their love of robots, this box was a slam dunk for us. We all can’t wait to see what is next.
