ScrapKins a Hit at the Bay Area Maker Faire

One of the booths my son and I went to at the recent Maker Faire in the Bay Area was ScrapKins. There, we were taught how to take a toilet paper tube and turn it into a monster. My son was quite creative with his, but it is practically NSFW, in an eight-year-old boy kind of way. So instead, I’m showing you what some of the other kids at the Faire put together.

Check out the ScrapKins website. They have all kinds of fun projects to do with materials found around the house, and they have a book, Scrap Kins Build-it Book, too!
