Put down the iPhone and go low-tech this weekend by making your kids their own tin can telephones. Remember this little project from childhood? It always amazed me as a child.
Joel of Made by Joel just made these simple tin can telephones and it inspired us to do the same. Once you gather the materials (2 tin cans, can opener, hammer and nail, and string), it's a project you can start and finish in less than 10 minutes. Dress them up by letting your kids paint or decorate the cans.
