Design & Drill See-Through Activity Center
Place one of the 10 design cards under the 10.5 x 10.5" transparent base, then use the screwdriver, wrench, or drill to "build" the design by placing the colored screws in the appropriate spaces. With 120 screws, and a 10x10 array of holes, children can design robots, hearts, helicopters, and an infinite number of their own patterns. Drill requires 3 AA batteries, not included. - Laura
With the Design & Drill See-Through Creative Workshop, little builders can use kid-friendly tools to drill colorful bolts into the see-through base to create super cool translucent designs.
The Nitty Gritty:
- Includes kid-friendly motorized drill with 3 drill bits (Phillips, socket, and flathead), 120 plastic bolts in 5 colors, hand screwdriver, combination wrench, 10 activity cards for design inspiration, and instruction guide Drill requires 3 AA batteries (not included) Supports STEM: Introduce tools, encourage problem-solving, inspire creativity
These activity centers fulfill two childhood needs: the desire to build beautiful patterns, and the desire to use “grown up” tools. The big plastic bolts wouldn’t be that hard to screw in to the playboards by hand, but what’s the fun in that? Use the included “power tools” (with forward and reverse mode)! When you’re done with the suggested designs, come up with your own! Power tools require 3 AA batteries, not included. Each set includes a playboard or an item to assemble, colorful bolts in a variety of colors and a tool (type varies by set).
