I have been writing a monthly craft column for Chicago Parent for over three years now. I always "like" my monthly project (after all, I came up with the idea, shopped for the supplies, conducted trial run after trial run and then put the whole thing into words -- so I get attached). But the column in the March issue of Chicago Parent is one of my favorites. This month, we raided our tool box (which is frankly more crap, less actual tools), the kitchen junk drawer and our recycling bin to come up with all of the materials that we need to construct some pretty cute "robots."
Are these adorable little guys able to bring us breakfast in bed or help with math homework? No. So I guess that they are not technically robots -- but we had a ton of fun making them and we are getting a lot more use out of random bolts, forgotten stainless steel scrubbers and felt chair pads than we used to!
You can make these cute little guys at your house too! Check out the details here.
