While looking for another book at Chapters, I came across Build Your Own Paper Robots and thought the boys would like it. I managed to keep it in hiding for a couple of months and give it as a Christmas gift.
Z and G are thoroughly enjoying building the robots. Cutting out all of the pieces is laborious. They are lucky to have Charlotte, who is willing to help them with that. It speeds up their robot building. I picked up cutting mats for their desks the other day….. something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while. The catch was they had to clean their desks before they could have them. I never saw their desks get cleaned so quickly. This has really helped keep the bulk of the robot building off of the kitchen table. I was getting tired of the constant moving and replacing of the project before and after every meal.
