Taking Apart the Stereo


The stereo stopped working, so we did what any good homeschooling family would do and took it apart. Daddy and the big boys took the major parts of the stereo apart (and threw out the dangerous parts. Then Zion spent the better part of an hour messing with the leftover pieces.

What have your boys (or kids) taken apart (or built) lately?
