DIY Smart phone, Kindle, iPad Stand

I’m a bit amazed that we’ve become a family that uses different electronic devices in our homeschool.  We use both the iPad and the Kindle for reading and doing Bible copywork.  When I saw my daughter doing her Bible copywork off of the Kindle, flat on the table, I knew I had to find a better solution for her.  It’d be better if the Kindle could be propped up.  Not wanting to spend a bundle for a stand, I looked around on the internet and found a blogger using a Nite-Ize GearTie for his smart phone.  These gear ties are simply rubber twisties that can be bent to different shapes.  I knew this was definitely a winner so I sent my hubby to Home Depot.  Seriously, I get lost in that store.  My brain just shuts down seeing all the home improvement assortments.  After spending about $4.50 for a pack of 18″ rubber twist ties, we have ourselves a Kindle stand!

For fun, I put my iPad on it and while it works, it’s a bit wobbly.  A 24″ tie would work better.

The tie also works wonderfully for a smart phone.

    Thank you very much for the great idea! Haha, this is just so fun to do. I don’t have to buy any of those pricey stands, I can make one of my own. 🙂
