Home Made Hex Bug Track

They never get bored for long. Just when I think I am a failure as a mother because I do not have them occupied enough – they find something to do.

Today inspired by his own desire for something interesting my eldest built his own Hex bug track out of cardboard. I feel pretty good about this especially since we are recycling – which is better than the original purchase of plastic moulded crud – made somewhere not very nice.

Check out the homemade version 1, the store-bought one, and then the final upgraded version:

He recently watched the video on Cain’s Arcade and then later caught a clip about him on Daily Planet and though I could see him coming up with this on his own – that sweet Cain was an inspiration for his next build which is a pinball machine out of cardboard. I will post it up when he gets done.
