A Paper Computer
My eight year old son has made it clear that he wants a computer of his own. He is no longer satisfied by borrowing mommies Macbook. He put it on his Christmas list. He put it on his birthday wish list as well. Unfortunately, we both felt he was to young to have his own by he obviously felt otherwise. My youngest has a talent for building things out of paper that actually work. He has built a functioning crossbow among many other projects. I often call him the "Paper McGiver." This time he has used his paper crafting skills to send us a clear message. Since we did not listen, he was going to build his own laptop. The keys really work. The knobs turn and it has a little working lever as well. The beauty of this laptop is that it will be really easy to re-cycle as well.
