We’ve been playing Minecraft for a while now, and every fall we have the same problem. Where are the Minecraft costumes?? I’ll admit, it’s gotten easier to find the parts now that Minecraft is so uber popular, but store bought costumes are never quite at good as homemade. Mitch has been a Creeper, a Enderman […]
Electric spiders! Flapping bats! Jittering ghosts! What happens when you mix Halloween spooks and a young mad scientist? Why, Monster Brush Bots, of course! Brush Bots are a super simple way to introduce kids to robotics. The hardest part is finding the tiny little motor to drive them, but I’ve got a few ideas to help you […]
