project elazar ran out of steam in the middle of
He was trying to make a menorah. He very much wanted one that would work. I thought about telling him that a flammable menorah was not a great idea. I provided duct tape because it is stronger than regular tape. I held it when he needed my help cutting. I tried to unfold numerous pieces (duct tape sticks to itself ridiculously well, which I guess makes it so great for a 6yo to make building projects with). I'm not sure why he got stuck at this phase of the project, what he envisioned that didn't come to fruition. He got it to stand up, which impressed me. I think it's possible he wanted to put another menorah on top of it, which was a flat platform of wood with nuts. So he learned some physics.
