When we were kids, asking for toys and board games for Christmas was the thing to do. Today, it’s all about technology. That’s all well and fine, but there’s something impersonal about handing a giddy five-year-old a tablet.
So when his little ones asked for computers this year, one dad decided to give them some tech with an added dose of personality. With wood, paint, lights, and a little ingenuity, he created computers that would make his favorite kiddos smile.
While most parents would cringe at the mention of what his kids called “dragon and kitty computers,” this dad went to great lengths to get his children exactly what they asked for.
First, he cut pieces of wood into their respective shapes.
After that, he laid a base for some white paint on each piece.
Creating these cutouts allowed Dad to incorporate hid kids’ love of kitties and dragons into the tech-based gifts.
Painting the cutouts white really made them pop.
After all of the paint was dry, Dad added some neon LED lights behind the wooden shapes and attached them to the wall behind each computer.
Here’s how the room looked before he started the project.
And here’s how it looks now. Amazing, right?
I think it’s safe to say that this dad just won Christmas. If you ever feel like giving out devices for Christmas takes away the fun, give something like this a try!
