Dotty Robot - Guest post by ArtsyCraftsyMom

 I'm back with a very popular craft at home.. My daughter loves robots and thinks all her problems (imaginary!!) would disappear if she had a special robot who could do all her work for her. So we decided to make one for ourselves.

We gathered our supplies -
Pom poms
Bow stickers
silver pipe cleaners
Thermocol Craft Ball
Foam dots
Googly Eyes
Craft stick
Glue gun
An old box for the body

We used an old Home lights match box and covered it with silver tape. You can use colour, shiny papers or even glitter papers. 
we then covered the ball to form the head & stuck it onto the body using glue gun. Googly eyes for the eyes and the robot was slowly coming to life. For legs we used a TP roll .. 

We added the foam dots & red pearl dots for buttons. Pipecleaners were twisted and stuck using glue gun. We then inserted half a craft stick within these pipe cleaners to form hands. 

Pom poms , a nice smile , antennae and cute bows later, our dotty robot was ready.. 

What do you think??? Isn't she cute???
