Computer Peace.

 The boys have been pretty up and down with each other lately - par for the course at this age and stage. However, I find if they have a project or mission, they are at their best together.
 And taking our old computer apart certainly proved the theory. The computer has been sitting about for years with us not quite knowing what to do with it. So when they suggested taking it apart I jumped at being able to provide a yes.
 Cleo from next door was a great worker too.
 Maybe they could provide a service. 
 The only provision I made was that there was to be no glass broken.
Along the way their imaginations became fired by all the different structures they found inside. We are all pretty amazing on the inside....
Have a great weekend,
Love Kate xxooxx.

There is a capacitor that can store deadly quantities of energy, even months after it is uplugged. Just want to keep your boys safe."

Boys boys boys. They are all the same, my son just had the best time at his grandmas as she let him take apart her broken rice cooker. Apparently they have complex insides too! mel x

DVD players are also great to dismantle - you can do all sorts of exciting things with the little motors!
