This year for my son’s birthday I got him a subscription to Tinker Crate, yep, it’s a two for one, he’s getting a new gift every month and it’s educational. Plus it comes with all of the supplies, which is a bonus for the organizationally challenged moms.

That’s me. No need to collect supplies or forget that one item at the store and then have a disappointed child. My son gets to learn about electric circuits and it takes no prep time for me, win win.

If you love this activity, you must try this Catapult STEM Activity with Popsicle Sticks.

The first month of Tinker Crate, we got to explore electric circuits. This was cool because my son loves creating and looking at the supplies it was a puzzle as to what he was going to make, turns out it was these cool paper lanterns.

You can see him setting them up and getting the LED lights ready. He was playing with the battery and he found that he could light them up by touching them to the two ends of the lights. This was a wonderful discovery for him and my kids just stopped and played with the lights for a bit at this point.

You also get a booklet with background information on how and why the project works. This kit also came with two other mini projects that used the same principle. He created a robot with LED lights for eyes. Then you could also create a city landscape with the copper tape as well.

Those two projects surprised me because I was already so happy with the quality of the mini lanterns I thought that was it. I really love how they show you that the circuits can be used for different purposes.

And while they have instructions for each project, they always leave an open ended project where you can design your own thing, in this case it was the cityscape one.
