Robots and sports? YES! Whether it’s a robot quarterback getting ready to throw the winning pass or a marathon runner on the starting blocks, robots love sports, too.
Here’s how the art in the pictures was made. Use your own ideas to invent robots with recycled items from around the house.
To make the quarterback, start with two clean, matching recycled containers, such as empty two-part cheese and pretzel snack packs. Use Crayola Model Magic® compound to design your player’s head and uniform INSIDE the snack pack sections. The larger bottom of the packs will be the outside front and back of your robot. Remember to write numbers and letters in reverse so you can read them from the outside.
Air-dry the quarterback. Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. Glue the halves of your robot together with Crayola School Glue.
Next, use an upside-down plastic fruit cup for your robot’s legs and feet. Pack Model Magic Model Magic compound into the cup. Air-dry the base for 2 to 3 days.
Glue the robot’s base to its torso. Finish the robot by using more modeling compound to make the robot’s arms and legs. Attach them in place on the body and base. Air-dry for 2 to 3 days before handling.
Make a marathon runner with moveable arms legs! Twist and bend aluminum foil into arms and legs. Use Model Magic compound to design the runner’s robot body around the legs and arms.
Crumple more aluminum foil for the head. Give your robot Model Magic hair, a hat, or bandanna if you like. Air-dry the runner for 2 to 3 days.
After both robots are dry, use Crayola Glitter Glue to decorate them. Be creative and imaginative. Have fun!!
