    We didn't take many pictures on day three. It's lots of the same thing, but Kininja is enjoying it.

    One mistake on day two was caught on day three. The LEDs on the green platter were all put and soldered on the wrong side of the board. A bit of solder wick fixed that. I guess I should have been taking less pictures and paying attention more.

    Should be finished tomorrow!

    Didn't take many pictures or do much today. Lots of soldering and bending LEDs. His soldering is getting better!

    Unpacking and checking contents:

    I had no idea how he would do. He loves LEGO and puzzles. I thought he would enjoy it, but wasn't sure how much he would be able to do. He started with a few resistors as I watched and tried hard to let him do it himself and not make sure everything was "how I would do it"

    He was concentrating pretty hard, but was enjoying.

    Checking the instructions:

    Now on to the soldering. I'm going to be honest, that made me a bit nervous at first.

    OK. WOW! Pretty good.

    On to LEDs!


    and populating:

    Time for bed. Good night!
