Some of my favorite projects are done with recycled junk and this is a new one to add to the list. The idea comes from my daughter's kindergarten teacher. We've been making recycled robots at home too and I wanted to share how to make them.
recycled boxes (we mostly used food boxes)
recycled Lids and bottle caps for eyes and buttons
glue or glue gun
silvery pipe cleaners
anything else you choose
To create a robot, we first gathered some food boxes, cardboard tubes, bottle caps, and lids. We built the robot without gluing to see how it would look.
Next, we covered the boxes and cardboard tubes with aluminum foil to give the robot a cool metal look. We used a glue gun for fast dry time.
Then we glued the pieces and parts together.
Lastly, we added more bottle caps for decoration and buttons. For a finishing touch we added silver pipe cleaners and a foil tail to make a Robot Monkey.
This one is a Robot Doggie.
