Elf-led Robot Making

Many shelf elves spend their nights getting into to trouble around the house. Our Elf on the shelf, Zuzu, is just as likely to bring the boys a craft project as she is to make mischief. For one of her activities, she brought the boys parts and tools to make simple robots.

Bristlebots are made with toothbrush heads, vibrating pager motors, and watch batteries.

Older Brother still wants a "one-eyed robot" for Christmas, so I have more elaborate plans for that.
