Braeden had an assignment this past week: to create a Valentine's Day box for school.
I have to say I think I outwardly and audibly groaned when I read his assignment. The ironic part? I was giving my class that exact same assignment the very next day! LOL :)
But I did my parent best. I researched ideas on Pinterest and other sites and came up with a few I thought he would like. I read about someone who said that they had made a rocket with a tube mailer and although I didn't want to find a tube mailer, I knew we had an oatmeal container so that idea was added to the list of possibilities. And it won.
So I gathered supplies.
I thought out the "best" way to do what I envisioned.
And I asked Braeden for ideas and choices along the way.
And it somehow became my project.
Oh, don't get me wrong, Braeden "helped." But I must admit I kind of obsessed over it and almost freaked out when after five days of work he started to unpeel a star sticker and place it on the tube before I asked. SAD! :( So he helped with the stickers, and gluing, and color suggestions.
And I LOVE it!!! :)
Olivia and I were bummed SHE didn't have to make a Valentine box! (She never has before either, so strange!) :)
So I proudly present to you... Braeden's creation...
(The top is hinged to pull back and drop in Valentines on the big day!)
