MiniB LOVES robots. I saw some tin can robots on Pinterest and thought it would be a really fun craft for the kids. I think the robots were featured in Family Fun magazine too but I didn't see them there. I love that magazine!
We used a lot of misc. stuff from our junk drawer (i.e., spools, magnets, paper clips, google eyes, sponge) and got creative. I love this robot with earrings:
The kids are using the cans to hold their pencils. They totally loved this activity. It was fun and easy--two things that I completely need right now.
