Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

You will need wood, a saw, markers(red and black), paint(yellow and orange), a pencil sharpener, magnet, watch, paperclips, pins, toothpick, paper, velcro, wire cutter, scissors, pencil, eraser top, paint brush, glue, clay, screw driver, hammer, sand paper, drill, and wire.
I don't have all the materials listed in the pictures.

Step 2: Cutting out the Wood

Next you will need to cut out the wood. It should be 2 inches in length, 2 inches in height, and 1.5 inches in width. Then trace the out line of the pencil sharpener and saw it out so the pencil sharpener can fit in the slot. Use clay to fill in any uneven surfaces to make it smooth.

Step 3: Legs

Next you will need to make the legs. They are two pieces of wood that are 1 1/2 inches in height, 1/2 inch in width, and 3/4 of an inch in length.

Step 4: Head

Picture of Head
The head is made out of paper. Look on picture number one for the design and then cut it out. You also have to cut out the circle in the middle. The hole should be the same circumference as the eraser top.

Step 5: Arms

Draw and cut out the arms so they are about the same shape as picture number one. You will need 4 of them. Draw the design with a pencil. You will also need to bend 2 pieces of wire that are 2 1/2 inches long so they look like claws so they will be able to "hold and grab" a pencil. now you will need to glue the arm pieces so they will be on either side. See image 2 for clarification.

Step 6: Painting

Paint everything that you just made a yellowish color. Mix a lot of yellow with a bit of orange.

how big should the magnet be
JellyWoo (author)  marioguy11214 years ago
The magnet should be just as big the body of the robot(the block of wood) and be strong enough to hold a couple paperclips on.
5 stars!
