Tried it Tuesday - Exciting!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I am actually linking up for Tried It Tuesday!

The idea of a Juice Box Robot came from a silly email my husband got about the 80s or something but when I researched it on Pinterest...oh my!  {HERE} is the search I did on Pinterest!  Too much to pick from so I just decided to go with applesauce, juicebox, mini raisin boxes and laffy taffys.   I wanted to get apple juice boxes but they came in a pack of 8 and Hi-C was a pack of 10 and cost about the same or a little less.  They still need some googly eyes and a spoon strapped on the back.  I have one size eyes, but hubby said he liked the example that had 2 different sized eyes, so I have to hit the craft store! 

Here is my robot army!! :)
 (sorry for the glare!  That's the first bit of sunlight we have seen in 48 hours due to rain and dark clouds!)

This is an up close look!  
Since my husband and I are both teachers, I get to make double the crafts!!  I made 50 of these suckers (27 for hubby and 23 for me).  That's a lot! But my precious 2 year old helped line up the raisins and stack the applesauce.  It was a fun bonding experience on the second rainy day in a row.  I needed something different to entertain her!  

I made these welcome cards to attach as well. I haven't passed them by hubby yet, but pretty sure I'll use the purple ones for my robots!! :)
