You can make a shiny robot from a toilet paper tube and aluminum foil.
- A toilet paper tube
- Aluminum foil
- Scraps of colored construction paper
- A stapler
- Crayons, paint, or markers
- 2 pipe cleaners
- Optional – Googly eyes
Cut a piece of aluminum foil a bit wider than a toilet paper tube and long enough to wrap around it entirely.
Put glue on the tube, then wrap the aluminum foil around the tube, tucking the excess foil into the ends of the tube.
Using scraps of colored construction paper, cut out shapes to decorate the robot’s body. You can make tiny control panels, buttons, switches, and other mechanical-looking decorations.
Glue the decorations onto your robot.
Either draw eyes or glue on googly eyes.
Staple pipe cleaners to the top of your robot to make antennae. You now have a shiny robot!
