Finally, the Lego kit I have been waiting for has arrived and I had time to actually build it the other day.

I am talking about the amazing Back To The Future DeLorean Time Machine. I will start off by stating that I loved this kit and love this build. If you are a fan of the movie, then this is a MUST HAVE!

Let me share some photos so you can see how cool it really is so you can justify buying one for yourself or kids.

When I opened up the box the goods come organized like this

The booklet had some great information in it besides the instruction build. It was a joy to read.

The kit comes with some additional add on pieces. The red hub cap, a new upgraded engine, and a clean energy diffuser

Of course my guilty pleasure are minifigs so I just love these two! You can rotate the head to unveil different facial expressions which is very cool indeed!

And of course the wheels fold in for flying perfection!

Here is my final picture taken with the doors open the way I like it!

I loved it. It was not a complicated build, but one that I enjoyed doing. The moving pieces make this cool whether the wheels, the doors, or other items. If you can get your hands on this one, then I suggest you get one.

Now onwards to figure out how to connect it to a EV3 brick to give it some actual speed!

What do you do with 8 ingredients and less than $10? Build a VOLCANO!

Being the nerd that I am, I love to build and make different things with my kids, especially when I am home alone with them to avoid and fighting and not worrying about making a mess with mom around!! Over the course of the last week we(Aiden and I) decided to take one of our science experiment books and choose an activity. We went with the volcano. Here is all you need: flour, water, cardboard, newspaper, paint, paintbrush, diet soda, and Mentos. The video below is a recap of everything we did together and even Addy jumped in and got involved(yes, the Cat make-up artist).

Why do I post this and why did I make a video? The answer is simple. I wanted to show people that it does not take much to be with your kids and do something fun. There is nothing more rewarding then spending time with your kids. The hardest part is not getting too involved and doing everything for them. I did not help in anything except cutting cardboard strips to form around the 2-liter to begin the framework for a volcano. The kids did the rest and they did an amazing job. I really cannot believe what they actually created. It just reminds me as both a parent and teacher that kids are capable of many things if we just give them a chance to shine.

This was awesome and fun and easily gave us 5 nights of things to do. Enjoy the video, please post your thoughts, and if you have a suggestion of something you would like us to try and do, then please leave a comment. Maybe it is something you have done or maybe something you want us try first and let you know how it turns out. I will tell you that we are working on two projects soon. One involves a garbage can and smoke and the other is painting with milk. Stay tuned……

Fun With Toys: Loving Words According to Vacuum Cleaners

I was not going to post this on the blog because it is so not funny and actually quite dumb. However, people are watching it from my YouTube channel and I even received some comments and email from people. So, needless to say I have decided to post it here for you to waste 36 seconds of your life.
