Climbing toys have been around for quite some time. They are usually made of wood. And according to Martha Stewart
, this toy trained pioneer children to milk cows. Amazing!
First download and print the Climbing Robot file.
Apply a thin coat of glue to a cereal box.
Tip: Use a small piece of cardboard to smooth glue on.
Stick the robot on, pin down and allow it to dry.
Cut the robot out.
Tip: Curve the tabs a bit for a cleaner look.
Place double-sided tape to the back of the hands. And stick on a short piece of straw.
Fold over and secure with tape.
Cut some string about 3 feet long and thread through the straw pieces. Tie beads to each end.
Hang on a doorknob or hook. Pull ends of string alternately to get the robot to reach the top.
