Recycled Tin Can Robot

This quirky little robot was made from odds and ends of parts found around the house. This project is one where you start out with a tin can and get creative from there. No two will be alike.

Supplies

Tin Can


Hot Glue Gun


We also used the following items:


Small coaster wheels from discarded cart


Coppr wire


White Beads


Silver Beads


Old Calculator circuit board


Metal handle from old bag


Bottle Cap


Screw


Soda Can Tab


Curtain Hook

Instructions

Start with a clean tin can and a hot glue gun. Think about the features that you want on your robot and collect miscellaneous items from the house and garage. The body of our robot was the circuit board from an old calculator. The "hair" came from Dad's garage supplies.

Look at everything around the house with new eyes, not for what they are but for what they can become.

Remember that a hot glue gun should always be used by a responsible adult, but let the kids imagination run wild.
