This is a great project to do with one of the favorite adults in your life. And you my friend need to be at least eight, because (and trust me on this one) kindergarteners and scissors don't mix...just ask my sister who, after butchering her dolls' hair, took pinking shears to her own the day before class pictures. So grab an older sibling, a parent, a babysitter, or a crafty aunt or uncle and make an amazing little machine with nothing more than paper and glue. A word to the adults: Automata or mechanical toys have an amazing history dating back to the 15th century. Paper automata are a more recent invention, and one that captured the fancy of a graphic designer who was inspired to create models of her own.
