Have you tried this yet? We are using a Duracell battery to make a scribblebot.This fall if you are looking for some fun things to do after school you must give this battery operated toy robot a try. Watching it scribble across the floor is too cool.
It really is a simple toy robot to make!
Supplies for DIY Battery Operated Toy Robot
1 regular sized solo cup
1 regular sized clothes pin
1 – AA Duracell Battery
Tape or Hot Glue (we used hot glue)
1 – 1.5-3VDC Motor
1 – AA Battery Holder
2 – crimp on disconnects
1 popsicle stick
How to make a Battery Operated Toy Robot that Draws
Hot glue (or tape) popsicle stick to top of plastic cup.
Hot glue motor to end of popsicle stick.
Place the AA Duracell battery in the battery holder and hot glue case to opposite end of popsicle stick.
Crimp a disconnector piece to the end of each wire coming from the battery holder.
Glue four markers evenly spaced and at same level inside the cup.
Hot glue a clothes pin the the rod coming out of the front of the motor.
Now you are ready to scribble! Connect the wires to the motor and go!
We had such a great time! Adjust your toy robot by adding weight to the cup, changing what you glue to the front of the motor or by adjusting the position of the markers.
