Reblog: Styrofoam robot via Dinasoars and Robots


robot Here’s the original post.  This has got to be the best use ever for the space-shaped and, I thought but was clearly wrong, utterly nonreusable styrofoam pieces that come with just about any appliance one buys.  This guy kind of reminds me of being a nature camp cousellor summers in Central PA.   Each year the day camp chose a super hero like the Recycling Ranger and made one of the college student interns dress up and teach the kids stuff.  I think it was the Garbage Guru who led us each week in the chant: “I say styrofoam, you say leave it alone.”


“Leave it alone!”


“Leave it alone!”

Ah, good times.  I haven’t played recycle tag for YEARS.  Remind me some other time to tell you about the camp’s director of Native American eduaction, the self-dubbed Injun Ed.

    wow, finally I found a way to do simething with that stuff; my son loves to build stuff…(I actually don’t always like that, he does make such a mess while building) but usually that goes from using new papers and things like that…this is so much better! I’ll show him the picture! great idea!
