DIY-creativity from childhood: instilling a love for home-made
Children learn very quickly - both good and bad. Well, the sooner you start learning the right things, the faster the child will begin to understand the wisdom of this knowledge. For example - the work on home-made, both electronic and quite ordinary, wooden, plastic, metal. Most modern children are immersed in their phones and tablets. So why not show them a different way to occupy themselves, and a way that brings real results? DIY in this regard is one of the best options, today we will tell about it.
Pebaro Kids Engraving Kit
Pebaro - a modern set for children's creativity, which is designed for engraving. You can perform it on wood, metal, plastic, eggshell, or even stone. The main tool is a miniature drill, to which is attached four types of nozzles. Each of them is suitable for a particular material:
- boron mill: wood, soft metal, stone, ceramics, plastic, eggshell;
- abrasive nozzle: hard metal, soft metal, glass, stone, ceramics, eggshell;
- HSS drill bit: wood, soft metal, plastic, eggshell;
- spherical diamond bur: hard metal, soft metal, glass, stone, ceramics, eggshell.
The drill is designed in such a way that the child can reach her hand without inconvenience. Outwardly, it resembles an ordinary electric screwdriver. The drills are inserted into a special cartridge, which can be clamped quickly using special universal clamps. Their diameter is 2.3 mm, so if you want, you can install on the drill nozzle third-party.
Of course, when working with such a system, it is necessary to observe normal precautions. First, it is better for the child to instruct, show what not to do, so as not to get hurt by chance, and then begin work. Such a device is not suitable for small children who have fine motor skills are not yet developed to the required level.
The length of the drill is 14 centimeters, and it weighs only 80 grams, so that the hand of the child will not get very tired. Pebaro for sale with a small case that allows you to take a drill with nozzles at least to the country, at least for a trip. Well, you can buy it in Madrobots .
Multifunctional burner, cutter and soldering iron Star Tec
Star Tec is a versatile tool for creativity. It combines three tools in one: a burner, a soldering iron and a cutter for foam plastic. Each of the functions is quite “adult”. For example, with the help of the same soldering iron there is an opportunity to work with microelectronics - for example, to solder microchips.
There are two types of tools - wide and narrow . Wide allows you to cut foam to a depth of 95 mm, the blocks can be up to 165 mm wide. Narrow is designed for cutting foam with a width of 70 mm. But the cutting depth can be already 210 mm.
The rest of the device is the same. They consist of two parts. The first is the main unit, the handle. It is made of blue plastic, complemented by dark blue non-slip inserts. There are no wires, because the device is powered by 4 AA batteries.
Nozzles for soldering, burning, and, accordingly, for cutting foam are included in the package. For the latter there are 3 spare strings. To change the mode of operation, simply change the nozzle on the main unit.
When working with Star Tec, you must follow the usual precautions for soldering or burning wood. The system is not in vain positioned as a tool for older school age: children at this age have developed fine motor skills and they understand well what they should not do so as not to injure themselves. However, before starting work, parents are best instructed to conduct a briefing with children, and as detailed as possible.
