My Bunso is excited for Wednesday. He cannot wait for his teacher’s reaction as he submits his Computer project. Their teacher required them to draw a computer keyboard and name its parts. The teacher encouraged them to make their project very creative and unique.
Bunso’s computer project —
Good things this mother kept their old malfunctioning keyboard. When husband told her to dispose of the old keyboard, she kept it, almost certain that they could use it in the immediate future for any of the boys’ school projects.
When she showed it to bunso, he jumped for joy. He was so excited to start with his project.
First, the mother and son went to ACE Hardware and bought a silver acrylic spray paint. They preferred the spray paint over the brush and can of paint as they assume the former offers a more even coverage. Also, spray paint is a hundred times faster than paint brushing. Not to mention that it dries faster and clean up is quicker with no more brushes to rinse.
The two decided to spray paint the keyboard to give it a new look and identity. Also, with a new gloss coating, Bunso could write on each key and scribble anything he would like to make his keyboard attractive and unique.
To properly label the parts of the keyboard, bunso used a color coding system. He mentioned to his mother that the human eye could read colors more quickly than words. He assigned, for instance, color green for “numeric keypad” and enveloped the numeric keypad part with green ink. For the label, he also used the same color as his markings on the keyboard.
This mother is also excited for Wednesday. And she can’t wait to go home to hear her Bunso’s very detailed kwento.
* (August 2014) I compiled and will share some of the school projects made by my boys in order to help other students with their research. It has always been this momi’s intention to offer help the best way she can.
That’s pretty cool. I remember this lesson from when the kids were still in grade school!
This looks great. I love the scribbled look on the keys.
I also do 🙂 thanks.
Oh my, you have given me some ideas on doing my own project. I really love how the school project turned out.
I also did. Thank you and hope this post would give moms ideas on how to do / help their kids’ school projects.
This is such a good idea! I’ve never thought have spray painting my keyboard before. It looks great!!!
This is a great idea, since my other letters are fade I would try these.
Wow, this is so cool! I love your ideas, you are so brilliant. i can’t wait for my son to go to school and have projects.
This makes me miss school! It’s always fun working on school projects, especially when you have a great mom helping you with it. I’m sure bunso nailed this one.
The school project looks like it came together nicely, and was a lot of fun to do. I’m not going to lie, when my nephew has projects like this…I get excited.
Haha. Were the same. I always get excited over projects. Ihihi.
Thanks for sharing. I love hands on projects. I feel people learn better when they do something like this!
That looks like a fun project to do together.
I hope he gets some good points!
Nice project. I’m lucky that my son’s school is not fond of giving school projects, more on paper works sila. Most of the time bring flowers, offerings or donations sila. 🙂
It would make my life more easier then if thats the case. Sometimes though i get excited over projects, i wish the teacher would do performance test na lang as we all know it would be the student who would answer and do the task. For the projects kasi most moms do the projects e.
I miss doing school projects too! Tho I always help my son to do his projects.
Galing, I’m sure he was so proud of his project! My mum barely throws anything out kasi baka magamit pa, and true enough, we were able to “recycle” stuff from home many times when we were still studying.
Galing ng mum mo. Ihihi.
I know that feeling of excitement and anticipation for our children. Haha. Naku, I seem to have disposed of our old xomputer parts already. I might need it pala in the future ano? Hehe, great idea on this. 🙂
Haha. Yes, anything can be useful. Ako rin marami na natapong. Though i save some since magkasunod ang boys ko at alam kong magpaparoject ang teacher ng keyboard parts kaya tinago ko talaga sya. Ihihi
Clap clap clap sis for the amazing work! I am sure mataas ang grade nyan, napaka creative!
Thanks. He is the creative between us.
Wow! Good job mommy. This is one cool DIY project for your kids.
Thank you. The little man enjoyed the most.
Wow! Ang galing! Anong grade?? I also prefer spray paint kasi it has an even coverage and easy to clean after. Good job mommy and Daniel!
Thank you. Haha. Cant remember the grade na pero for sure mataas. Hahaha. Kapal.
What a cool project! Oo nga good thing you still had that! Haha I’m sure your son was super happy and surprised! Good job Mommy Berlin! 😀
Thank you. Haha, sometimes keeping those scraps pays off. My mom told me once I am like Simeon, keeping everything. And I dont even know who Simeon is. But when I asked my Lola before, Simeon was her brother who keeps trashes and stuff with high hopes he will use them again.
Wow! Great effort on your son’s project. I’m sure he’s so proud of his work. The hoarder in me now thinks that I should be careful in throwing away things that can be used later on.
Haha same here. I keep things and stuff thinking and imagining they still can be used especially in doing school projecys.
This is so cool! Your kid gets to be creative and learn as well. ☺
Thank you. Hope they still be creative and enthusiastic even when they reach high school and college.
Cool project! It was nice you can help pa with your kids projects! I used to do that pero now, mas on hands na si hubby kasi mas magaling sya sa akin sa details and mas patient. 🙂
Haha, i always love involving myself when it comes with my children. Now na lang na medyo ayaw na nila, mas gusto nila sarili nilang diskArte which is mukhang mas ok.
What a cool project! I’m sure your bunso had fun making it too!
He had fun making it. Thank you.
Mother knows best 🙂
Haha. Knows best in keeping unnecessary things.
This is a cool project 🙂 I cant wait for my kids to have projects too, though I’m sure, my husband will be more helpful since I’m not artistic :))
Cool project! I remember may project din kami nung high school for our computer subject, kaya lang we made use of foam lang for the keyboard.
