Can Too!



School projects certainly aren't what they used to be. They are waayy cooler!

This weekend my daughter had to build a robot, but dad was away - so mother & daughter set to work. (I feel hopelessly inadequate compared to "the man who can").

Plan A:
She originally wanted to build out of wood - but my carpentry skills are limited.

Plan B:
Check out the recycling bag.

This is what she came out with:
  • 2 x bottle tops
  • 2 x cooldrink cans
  • 2 x toothpaste boxes
  • 2 x cigarette boxes
Who knew my buying habits were symmetrical.
I found an old glue gun and rummaging in the left over paint box delivered some spray-paint.

Then I followed detailed instructions;
stick these together - here, no here; he must be red, but his shoes must be black; he needs an aerial...a smile...and oh a name...can you cut these out?

My only legacy - the fingers and the smile (a bit like in my daughter)
