Introduction: Wearable Blocks
“Play is often talked about as if were a relief from serious learning. but, for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood” －by Fred Rogers
Children are always active and curious, everything is worth exploring with all of their senses. Wearable blocks are playful toys that can enhance children’s communication, develop their sensory system and give them a chance to play with diversity behaviors.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Shape Design
Drawing the cutting shape.
Step 2: Paper Craft
Step 3: Create Circuit
White glue stick
Step 4: Conductive Fabric
Sew the magnets inside the conductive fabric, so that blocks can stick on it. The mechanism is that every block has a battery inside, copper tape is used for connecting LED and battery. When the block touch the conductive materials, the electric circuit will be connected, and LED will light up. While the block detach the conductive materials, LED will light off.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Try to stick the blocks on your body and turn yourself to a lamp...haha
