🤖 Building Robots from Empty Boxes and Plastic Cups: A STEAM-Powered Extravaganza!

The video kicks off with an exciting endeavor – building robots using nothing more than empty boxes and plastic cups. Michelle demonstrates how simple household items can transform into fantastic creations that not only entertain but also engage young minds in the realms of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). The best part? These robots aren’t just fun to build; they come to life with the imaginative stories your child creates for their newfound robotic friends.

Crafting a Mini Golf Course with Household Items: Tee Off for Family Fun!

But the creative journey doesn’t stop there! Michelle guides viewers through the construction of a mini golf course using everyday household items. From repurposed cardboard tubes as tunnels to repurposed plastic containers as tricky obstacles, the mini golf course becomes a canvas for both fun and learning. As families come together to design their courses, they discover the physics behind each putt and the joy of turning their living room into a mini golf adventure.
