  • Of Food And Love: Building A Motor

    The plus side to having a smart husband, is he can pretty much do anything.  No joke.  I love it.  The downside, is that my kids think he’s the only one with a brain.  HAH.

    Cylas has show and tell every few days.  He looks forward to it.  The other day, D mentioned that he’d like to make a motor so Cy could bring it for show and tell.  I thought it would be a great idea!

    So, suddenly, my kitchen became a hospital and my counter became an operating table.

    The two sacrificial toys, who gave up part of their guts so a 5 year old could have a homemade motor for show and tell.

    My husband is so creative.  Honestly.  I don’t know how he does half the things he does.  He rummaged around and cut up pieces of old cottage cheese containers for the fan.  Took a piece from Cy’s old clock (which Cy broke because he was trying to see how it worked), and removed the motor from an old tractor.

    Cylas was entranced.  Right.

    D was over there trying to show him what “stripping a wire” was and Cylas was waring against the imaginary wire soldiers.

    But soon, the motor started to take shape.

    And, oh the glee of watching the cottage cheese lid spin madly.

    It’s all from the touch of two pieces of metal…conducting electricity.  And now, Cy has the coolest show and tell, ever.
