Our Valentines Project

This year is the first year that Zack had to make a valentines "box" for school. I asked him what he wanted to do and I pulled up a bunch of ideas on-line for him to see that we could maybe copy. I had a few boxes saved from Costco that would be perfect.

Well, he glanced at my "cute" ideas and firmly stated that he wanted to make R2D2. Um...really? We can't just paste some red and pink paper on a box and call it good? Apparently not.

So, I spent a whole day trying to find a garbage can in the shape of R2 and the rest of the supplies and then we had a super busy day scheduled so we had a total of like 3 hours to get this puppy done, the night before the big party.

I think it turned out pretty cute! I promise this was not one of those projects I took over and did. Zack actually did most of it. He was pleased with it and now he has a cool trash bin for his room. Win-win!

(Notice the shirt, he loves anything Star Wars)

You and Zach rock! That is the cutest, most creative V-day box I have ever seen. I'm going to have to block the view of this blog from my little guys....I don't want them getting any ideas for projects in their V-day future (:

Woah... Andrew and Ian would DIG one of those. Maybe Zach can come give us some instruction sometime!
