Robot making for 5-6-year-olds

I have held another robotics workshop for kids and their parents! This time we built a robot glove from cardboard. It had to be simple, fast and without using any electrical power or glue. This workshop also explained hand biology (which muscles are used to move our fingers)

First was the designing phase (should it have three, four or five fingers?):
Drawing the robot hand on cardboard

The cutting phase:
cutting the robot hand out
The assembling phase:
Assembling the robot hand
The user-accept-testing phase:
Testing the robot hand
Some of the robot hands required some improvising:
Improving the robot hand
With an excellent final result and a great bonding experience between the children and the parents:
