Make Your Own Tinker Box & Build Robots {STEM Project for Kids}

My kids love to learn how things work!

You will frequently find them taking things apart or weilding a screwdriver to help Dad with projects around the house.

And yes, we have had our own share of mishaps as a result of their explorations -- but we've learned that those broken items are just a part of life when you're raising curious kids.

In order to give them the opportunity to 'tinker' and explore, we've offered the kids a variety of ways to get hands-on as they build, explore and create new inventions.

One of their favorites is to have their own Tinker Box -- an activity that offers them the opportunity to use tools, learn how things work and engineer to their hearts content!

Here are the details so you can pull together you're own Tinker Box at home along with affiliate links for some of the items that will be helpful as you do!

Lucky you! 

My parents have retired in Florida so we have been blessed to visit the parks a few times. 

The first time we climbed into the Swiss Family Robinson's treehouse and sailed the raft to Tom Sawyer's Island, my kids were confused.  They hadn't seen either of the movies and once I explained they were 'live action', the kids were surprised to know there were non-animated Disney movies!

Our family movie nights expanded to include some of the older, non-animated features that I enjoyed as a child and quickly became family favorites.

So before you head off to enjoy 'the happiest place on Earth', there are a few must-see Disney movies (along with some non-Disney movies) that will help to enhance your visit to the parks!
