I am in the habit of collecting boxes and tubes for some future art project! So we put them to good use building a recycle robot!
I gave Henry all the things he could use on a table. Boxes, toilet rolls, paper plates and a flower pot and some wool and googly eyes! and asked him to design his robot.
Just be aware to have some very strong glue handy if you are going to stick tubes on as legs and arms.
We covered the cereal box body with plain paper so Henry could create whatever design on it he wanted. Henry asked me to help with the arms and legs, but after that he added everything else inc. hair and eyes.
In the end Henry gave the robot a name - "Stanley" and stuck some packing polystyrene bits to its tummy.
Stanley still stands proud in Henry's bedroom, even though we completed this activity months ago.
