To make this robot craft you will need:

Coloured pens

White paper

Scissors

Glue/tape

Boxes (I used 2)

Step 1 Use the scissors to carefully punch some holes in the sides of the boxes. One hole in the bottom of the smaller box. One hole in the top of the larger box, and a hole on either side of the larger box (these will be used to attach the head and arms to the robot).

Use the scissors to carefully punch some holes in the sides of the boxes. One hole in the bottom of the smaller box. One hole in the top of the larger box, and a hole on either side of the larger box (these will be used to attach the head and arms to the robot).

Step 2 Cover the boxes, straws and toilet roll tube in tin foil, gluing and taping where necessary. Once you have covered the boxes, carefully push through the foil where the holes are as you can see in the small box in the photo above.

Step 3 Push one straw through the two side holes in the big box to make the robot's arms. Then push the other straw into the hole on the top of the box, and put the top of that straw into the hole in the smaller box to attach the robot's head.  Glue all of the pieces together. Then, on some white paper, draw some buttons and a screen to put on the body of the robot.
