Help Donald Reed !!!!

by diydonaldreed

Hey there I’m writing this post to simply ask if anyone knows any DIY projects for children. I am a nanny or “manny”, or whatever you call it, and I watch a very sarcastic and honest 8 year old. He is great but when he is bored, or whenever a dull moment happens during conversation he has no problem letting me know that I am boring him. So I have decided to look up some DIY project for him to do. But I can’t seem to find any that would amuse him. He is hard to please, to the point where if I even make him crack a smile I feel my day wasn’t a complete fail. I even thought of taken notes from the readings and letting him use my camera to make up a story or a game where I ask questions and he answers with film. I remember hearing that there are some people in class that watch children, so please I would love some advice. I have to watch him and one of his friends for 12 hours next week. So I’m planning a day, so I don’t go completely crazy.

ANY IDEAS???!!

  1. I would recommend checking out some of Sylvia’s Mini Maker Show on youtube. It is a show hosted by a young girl who does little projects with the help of her dad… some of these are probably easier to pull of than others. Check out the No Heat Lava Lamp. If I think of anything else I’ll let you know.

  2. A manny? At least call yourself a Mr. Nanny http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGwe0XCo4Sw
