Have you ever been in a situation where you really want to draw, but don’t have the items and/or space? If that answer is yes, then I have the thing for you. A drawing storage which is portable and accessible.    I call this my very own Cereal Box draw-bot. It’s made of, as you can guess, cereal boxes. I have cut two slits, one on the left and one on the right, in a large cereal box and taken a piece of a smaller cereal box to stick in through the slits. That was meant to be a shelf for paper. (Copy, drawing, marker, etc.) I then took one side of this shelf and made it stick out just enough to serve as a small shelf/bin and covered it with tape. Lastly, I have taped a small plastic bag to the side which can store something such as colored pencils, crayons, or markers.   This device could also be taken somewhere to entertain a little kid who gets bored very easily. It’d also maybe help with being bored in waiting rooms and not being able to entertain yourself. Long lines, maybe? Or long rides? Pretty much any time when  you have to wait and you’re someone, like me, who gets bored easily.    I had some challenges while building, such as figuring out how I’ll make the exterior shelf. I originally planned on having two, one on the left and one on the right. The cardboard of the smaller cereal box was just too small to have a shelf on both sides, so I improvised. I didn’t have too much of a plan when it came to inside and all that but I decided that the shelf on the outside was more important just because I could’ve just put paper inside of the box.    While constructing, I contemplated adding different things, such as more bags and shelves. The bag part would’ve been easy, although the shelf could’ve added more of a structural challenge. It would’ve needed another piece of cardboard just because the smaller cardboard wasn’t long enough to go fully across the large cereal box with about an inch of space on both sides.    I like drawing and making art, especially when I have nothing to do. Waiting rooms can get so boring, lines too! That’s most of the purpose when it comes to this robot   This is all I can say about my robot. My Cereal Box draw-bot is not too much of a robot and more of a storage unit. It’s made of two cereal boxes, tape and a plastic bag. Of course, if you wanted to recreate this, you could add different things. It’s reasonably portable and accessible. With this bot you can draw anywhere! The car, long lines, waiting rooms. Many things could be put in this so you can draw whatever you want anywhere you want. You can put crayons, markers, pens, colored pencils, etc. in the bag. Any paper you’d like inside, too!
