Hello everyone hello hivers I'm new to this wonderful community so first of all let me greet you a blessed Sunday. My very first post is all about my son's invention. Ever since he was young I saw and observe that he loves to make toys on his own. I mean as a kid everyone sure will not reject a new toy specially when it's battery operated or controlled by a remote control. But son is quite different every time his toy will be ruin he will not just put in a junk but rather open the inside and see what he can do to recycle it.
I can remember he was on elementary days about grade four or five he saw his older cousin made something; a kind of stuff that will absorb the water and can transfer on the other side. Yes and all he have can easily found inside the house.
And today let me show you one of his upgraded invention. Why a word upgraded I remember before he made a boat out of a plastic container. A small box from a small flashlight and it was successful but the boat only turned around and around, because it was out of a small square plastic box. His father and uncle saw it and amazed that my son is patient enough to do that stuff. Next was out of plastic bottles the small ones too bad that I don't any photos of it, it was years ago and to now I want to flex my son's hard work. His already 13 years old but I can see his still happy to build his own toy. Even her elder sister was impress and told that he'll be needing that skill when he turned garde nine or ten.
This is one of my son's invention or diy car. My brother in law told me to take photos of it because it will help him improve his work. And today I'll show you his diy boat made out of styrofoam.
Styrofoam, my son used a hard one
Kitchen knife take extra careful in using it
4 pieces of double AA battery, but if you bigger batteries the better it will
Children's electric car DC motor
My son cut the styrofoam into a shape of a boat, about 9 inches in length and 3 inches width. Point the top edge it will the pressure of the air pass through. Then he used a sand paper to finished the edges. He used a scotch tape to tigh the batteries and joined them to together. He put wires on both sides so that energy or electricity can walk through.
And now it's time to heat the glue gun, on the photos you'll see that my son is attaching the batteries into the styrofoam.
And here's the finished product, out from an old toy he made a new one. Looks very simple to do while looking at it, but it was tough, specially if you're not patient enough. My son want to build more toys his passion and eagerness to learn more will lead him to success.
