For today’s activities, we are making more ROBOTS!
|We learned about SIMPLE ROBOTS yesterday, and today we are adding on and learning about humanoid robots. What makes a robot look more like a person?These activities are still geared towards all ages, but today’s lessons and activities have more for the older kids to enjoy. But still enough for younger kids too!
Our first activity is a fun paper puppet: We are making a Robot with real moving parts!
You will need mini-brads for this activity. These are 8mm brads used for scrapbooking and can be found in the scrapbooking section of your craft store. You can also find them online on Amazonhereand here.
If you don’t have access to mini-brads, you can use paperclips, small wire, fasteners or even make a very small hole and use string. These options are less ideal in that the paper can more easily rip, or the moving parts won’t be as moveable…but creativity will get you far!
The Robot Puppet Instructions are simple: Print out the page on printer paper or cardstock (heavier paper). Color in the robot body parts. If you are using the Draw Your Own option, draw in the details of each robot body part. Cut out the body parts. Poke a small hole through the black dot on each body part (you can use a pin or the tip of the mini-brad if it’s strong enough). Fasten the body parts together, matching the holes. Play for endless hours!
The other printables also include: a robot drawing page, Robot symmetry page and a “learn how to draw a robot face” page. Have fun!
Our art lesson is today is: HOW TO DRAW HUMANOID ROBOTS.
We’ll be adding to the lessons of how to draw a simple robot and how to draw a person. Now we are learning how to draw a robot with a more human form! Follow along with me, or be inspired to make your own! Let your imagination help you come up with as many robots as you can think of!
