Picture of DoodleBot360
This is a very simple vibrobot to make, and a lot of fun to play with.  I was a cubmaster for 3 years, and this is the kind of project that is perfect for that age group (8 to 11 years-old).  Even if you are not in that age group, you can still have a lot of fun making and experimenting with DoodleBot360! 

Step 1: Here's what you need...

Like I said, this doesn't get much easier and it's cheap.

1 - CD or DVD.  This is something you can make with those old scratched up discs.
1 - Dollar Store vibrating toothbrush.
1 - Package of Markers.
1 - Hot glue

You will also need a drill and drill bit to make the holes.  The size of drill bit depends on the diameter of the markers.  The markers that I used are 3/8" in diameter

Hi dlcain, we used your Doodlebot360 as a kids workshop during the Mini Maker Faire in Groningen, the Netherlands. Kids had GREAT FUN building your project! Thanks for sharing, big time! I posted a report on the MF on the forum, over here. There's a video too...
