Reader Question: Cool Crafts with Old Computer Parts
One of our awesome readers, Abby, asked if we had any projects for old computer parts. In response to her question, we put together a round-up of 5 cool crafts with old computer parts! Grab your keyboards, circuit boards, etc, and get crafty!
Especially in this generation, children love to pretend that they’re typing. If you have an old keyboard, or if you find one at a thrift store, turn it into a rocket console like Doodle Craft did! She painted small images on each key to make it look like the inside of a real rocket! To make this project even more eco-friendly, perhaps you could use Dick Blick’s green tempera paint instead of regular acrylic paint.
