Think outside the cereal box to create an upcycled robot! Anyone who’s a fan of MAKE must, at a minimum, appreciate a good robot when they see it. So when there’s an easy way to create a robot from materials you have in your kitchen, it’s a great, budget-friendly way to have fun with your kids on a summer’s day—or anytime.
Idea: Have kids scratch up the styrofoam. These are the scars that have been left, the pepper that have hurt us. Apply paint with brayer. Stamp on paper. Scars are there, but we can still create and be beautiful things.
If the #Easter weekend brings rain, it doesn’t mean kids can’t go on an adventure. By following these simple steps they can even explore as far as outer space! Now, we can’t promise this homemade rocket ship – constructed entirely from household items – meets exact NASA specifications, or is durable enough to survive re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere, but we’re sure it will fire your kids’ imaginations. #EasterTogether
