So, for our "Make Something Monday" craft, we decorated our own robots!
I cut our three different robot 'bodies' from various leftover scrapbooking papers, and then random shapes from other papers. We picked our bodies and started to glue! This was also a very good opportunity to practice our shapes as well (ah, the tricks parent's play).
Hunter asked for most of the pieces by name: "Triangle, please" and so on. He even got the diamond right :)
We talked about the shapes, we talked about the colours, we even talked about the textures! He was a big fan of the 'spawkwy" white circle he got to put on.
Our end results!:Hunter's Robot
(and yes, I realize my robot pales in comparison to the boys')
And while we're talking about robots, check out some other really cool robot stuff:

- This free Ravelry pattern for an R2D2 beanie is sure to make any Star Wars (or robot) fan feel warm and fuzzy!
