Making Robot Ornaments

 My little boy likes to make robot ornaments out of woodies.  Woodies are flat little pieces of wood which have been cut into all kinds of shapes.  You can buy them at the craft shop.  But I also have wood beads and scraps of all sizes.

 We use tacky glue because it dries quickly.


Since he likes to take things apart, he also has a collection of wires and pieces of electronics.  He found just the right thing to add to his robot.


Here is one of his first robot ornaments.  He made this one when he was a tiny boy.


This one below was a gift for one of his grandmothers a few years ago.  I helped him add embroidery thread for attaching the arms.  He glued glass beads for buttons.


And here is the grass reindeer we made a few weeks ago.  Have you made one yet?

My son already loves robots and he is only 3 years old. A little too young for this craft but I can definitely see him doing it in the future. A fantastic idea! Thanks for sharing.

A three year old is probably old enough to make an ornament out of woodies. He may even be able to make a simple robot, like the earliest one my little boy made! Have fun! love, Beth
