Robot Readers

Hi Everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations! I am happy to share fun project for kiddos today! Having trouble getting kids excited about reading?!?!? I homeschool my oldest son Alexander.  I am always looking for ways to get him excited about school- especially reading. Here is my solution!
 I cut these robots from Robot Party (layers with Real Size Off) at 1.75 inches using my Imagine Pattern cartridge Blast Off for the paper.  I assembled the Robots adding details such as Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Black for the wheels and eyes and Glow in The Dark paint for small details like buttons and knobs.  Even though you can't see the Glow in The Dark in my pics- believe me! They GLOW! This really got my Alexander excited!
After all the details dried, I added a painted lollipop sticks to the back with hot glue.
 Now he can use them like a pointer to follow along with the words while he reads.  Thank you as always for following and subscribing at She's A Sassy Lady! I would love for you to stop by my personal blog at http://www.217Creations.com to follow and subscribe as well.

These are adorable and what a great idea to help children out. My daughter had a problem with her eyes jumping all the time and was required to point at the word when she read. Ideas like this would have made things easier for her. Thanks for sharing this wonderful project with us.
