According to my five-year old, building your own iPod is, well, child’s play.
- Collect 5-6 old wikki sticks, preferably ones that have been lying around the house for a week and have obtained a certain level of dog hairiness.
- Add one yellow shoe string from an old dinosaur lacing game.
- While preserving two wikki sticks to be used as the earbud cord, ball up the wikki sticks and insert one end of the yellow shoe string into the base of the wikki stick ball.
- Attach the remaining wikki sticks, stretched out straight, to the opposite end of the yellow shoe string.
It will look something like this when you are done.
Amazingly enough this particular model of iPod allows the used to send and receive email. Cody asked me to try it out so I started pretending to type on it and spoke out loud what I was typing.
me: Dear Papa, please come home…now.
Once I typed the last word, lo and behold, our front door opened and in walked Papa.
cody: It worked just like magic!!!
It didn’t hurt that just moments before he asked me to type an email, I had heard Husband’s truck door shutting in the driveway.
LOL you may have just inspired an future engineer!
I am quite often amazed at the imagination of my children. An engineer in the family wouldn’t be bad at all.
