    I remember making a radio when I was younger, so something like that or maybe try something like an engine (Link) or a mars rover (Link).

    its amazing that you remember something that cost so little and forget more expensive things, my son remembers things that i cant believe for example last minute picnics and making stuff at home, digging holes on beach , really simple stuff , nice really

    yes , my brother sat for hours with my son and made the thunderbirds vehicles with him as we couldnt get them from shops for his birthday , pop bottles, fairy liquid and sellotape , then paper glued over and painted, he cherished those vehicles and still has them as a grown up young man , they were fab and still are, priceless memories x

    nice idea

    One of the best things I did as a kid was a model hot air balloon out of paper mashi. Just blow up a balloon and cover it in newspaper soaked in flower and water paste. great fun popping it when dry and then painting it. Make a cardboard box as the basket and add some string then hang it from the ceiling :-)
