Introducing Nintendo Labo

Nintendo LABO Variety Kit

The Nintendo Switch is such an amazing innovation in video gaming. However, it is not often that a video game platform has real world applications. The Nintendo Switch is no ordinary gaming platform. Below is a press release about the new Nintendo LABO which is a special DIY kit that you can build physical games that work with the joycons and the screen. One of the kits even transforms you into a robot and as you move the robot on the screen does too. It is a cool way to use the technology of the Nintendo Switch in such a great way.

Nintendo has put together a preview video to show people these new toys or toycons that you can make and then use with the Nintendo Switch. You can watch that below and then read the full press release below that and if you want to purchase these toys I have links to where you can pre-order them.

DIY Kid Creation – Tic-Tac Pencil Sharpener

This morning when Eva and I came home from Church I was taking trash from my car including an empty 200 count Tic-Tac box. Eva saw it and she wanted it for a project. I was skeptical but she said that she had a broken pencil sharpener and figured that this would replace that. She planned to take the broken piece and hot glue it to the opening of the Tic-Tac box. That way the pencil shavings will be collected within the box. She then said that she would decorate it and then make a video all about it. I was proud of how she wanted to make this item. She made the video before Allison came home to help he with the hot glue so she helped me make my daily vlog and we inserted her video inside of that.

Tonight I took Allison to the restaurant, Scorpion. It was a nice place with a Mexican theme. The food was delicious and I had the first Margarita that I’ve had in a very long time. It was also the first date night in a long time, too. The kids enjoyed some time with one of their favorite babysitters.
