I thought today I would talk with you about some of my lad’s favourite crates that have come to us via kiwi/tinker crates. He’s done a lot of crates so it’s a tiny bit hard to choose. 🙂 Suffice it to say, he’s had lots of opportunity to do STEM projects.
First up: DaVinci’s Clock. You know a good crate when it’s still being used long after it was made.
There’s the planetarium, which he uses to light starts up on his ceiling at night. I still remember his joy when he got it all put together.
I haven’t written about this one yet, but the lad still plays games with the Tinker Crate Arcade game. And some how unbelievably I can’t find a good picture of it to share with you! GAH!!! Sometimes.. oh sometimes I just want a different camera. 🙂 But hey… trust me.. he plays with it. It’s like the toss the ball to get it into a hole…. except he’s made all kinds of interesting rules to go along with it. 🙂
What else does he still do stuff with?
There’s the claw and the fuzzy minions. 🙂 (at least that’s what I call them). This made up a carnival type game where you have a claw and try to grab a stuffie. These fuzzy minions have been a lot of fun in our household.
The Fibre-optic Constellation he was quite pleased to have managed to figure out. It was quite complicated to build. Took him much longer than most build. You probably can’t see how the stars light up, but it looks very neat in a dark room. It’s another light he puts on while reading before bed.
Ah before I forget, I must not neglect to mention the Spy Case. This provided a lot of fun for the lad, sneaking around corners and peering into things. 🙂 And how doesn’t like writing in invisible ink?
Anyways, Tinker Crates have been a boon to our household, and I hope you’ve enjoyed this peak into some of the favourites of my lad.
