Supplies:

  • Straw
  • String (4 ft or more)
  • 2 Large Beads or Buttons
  • Card Stock
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Instructions:

  1. Print out the robot on card stock and cut along the dotted lines.
  2. Turn the robot over. Cut a regular drinking straw in half, then cut in half again. Tape two of the straw pieces to the middle of the back, leaving room in between.
  3. Thread the piece of string through the straws  making a bit loop at the top.
  4. Tie a bead or button onto each of the loose ends.

To make the robot climb:

Hang the loop on a doorknob. Grab the beads or string and pull them out away from the robot and watch it climb all the way up then slide back down.
