A wise friend recently reminded me that there are just some things you can’t know until you do.
What things did you have to experience before you really understood them?
When Morgan was around about three he fell in love with robots… or ‘lobots’ as he called them back then.
It’s comforting and also slightly surreal that as Noah approaches three he is also a tad obsessed with robots… or ‘wobots’ as he calls them.
Noah makes robots out of Lego and has begun to label all his drawings as ‘wobots’ and he adores the book ‘That’s Not My Robot’.
Following his interest in robots I thought I might make him some for the felt board, but then I remembered I had stashed away some printable magnet paper and I knew exactly what I would do with it - a build your own robot set!
A little time spent creating robot parts, some more time cutting them out and then lots of time having fun on the bottom of the fridge.
Ok, I confess, I love these little guys almost as much as Noah does and I can’t wait for the big kids to come home and discover them!
You can download the build your own robot pdf here. Then all you have to do is print, cut and play. If you don’t have printable magnet paper you could cut up old magnets and stick them to the back of each piece, or this would be fun made from regular paper and used kind of like a puzzle on a tray.
