Kids will have fun making a trash bot. The first step is the most fun, finding different parts and pieces to include. They can use anything they want. Tell them to find items such as old boxes, cans, plastic containers, paper towel rolls, cartons, bottle caps, string, and packaging material and most important their imagination.
You'll also need tape and glue.
Remember, the trash bot doesn't have to be perfect. He doesn't need to have an arm, leg, head or even an eye. Anyway he's made is great.
Cereal boxes and toilet paper tubes are wrapped in tin foil and decorated with colorful plastic lids and caps to make a robot. Kids activity blog shares the details.
Good for ages 6 and up.

Tin cans have a great second life as an upcycled craft making robots. They're so shiny and metallic they make the best base for your kids to create a pretend artificial life form. Just add some additional objects such as stickers, paper, pipe cleaners, pom poms and tape. Make sure to tape the sharp edge before playing.
A fancier version that doubles as a table centerpiece storing yummy cookies and plastic utensils.
