This is such a great idea for anyone that loves robots. A great way for a kid to make this easy Robot pumpkin that can last a longer while because it is not carved so they can admire it longer and I love that their is no sharp objects for them to get hurt on. Let your little one make on to take to school so he can feel like a genius too.
