This is the 3rd Scrapbot that my 3yr old daughter have made. This one is also the first with any sort of plan of any kind. (I included the plans in my post.) This ones name is Fatbot-5000 because insted of being about an inch and a half think it’s about 3.5 inches thick. It stands about 7.5inches tall and is made of reclaimed oak from a railing, and some half inch dowel I had just sittin around the shop. Like all Scrapbots it’s held together using 2 bungee cords to allow the arms and head to move.

Make them with your kids. My daughter will be 4 in April and she has been pulling the lever on the drill press for all the Scrapbots and she helped with the glue for this one. When you can do this stuff with your kids… I donno it’s hard to explain. It’s just that much better.

Scrapbots are cool. Time with children is priceless. Make sure these are saved for future years. Heirlooms to hand down.

Pardon my ignorance but can’t seem to find the plans. Am I missing something?

The first pic was the plans. It is the most planning I have ever done on any project yet.
