My four year old attends preschool and they have a monthly treat calendar that designates each kid a day where they have to supply a treat for the entire class. While we have to consider allergies within the classroom, I did not just want to send in a bag of cookies and call it a day. I made it a goal for myself to come up with a craft a week. So of course I go cruising on Pinterest to see what ideas are out there. I stumbled upon this Robot treat and thought perfect. While there were no directions, I took the picture and figured it out. If you have seen this before and thought what or how to make the Robot, where here it is… STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS!!! I can say it is a little time consuming. It did take my about 2 1/2 hours to assemble 30 (as many kids in my kiddos class); so depends on how many you have to make, how long it will take you to do. It can also be a little pricey. My suggestion is to plan ahead. If you know you like this and want to make watch the sales and buy the supplies while they are on sale. I priced it at my grocery store at regular price with no coupons, to make 30 it would cost me $44.83. Did I pay that? Heck no. I paid $21.44 for all the supplies. Which for 30 of these little guys makes it less than $1 ea. Great healthy snack and it’s super cute for a great price!
Let’s Get Busy…
What you will need:
- Juice Boxes
- Apple Sauce Cups
- Mini raisin boxes
- Pretzel Rods
- Goggly eyes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Plastic Spoons
- Saran Wrap
Step 1: Hot glue 2 mini raisin boxes to the bottom of the juice box. Make sure the side without the straw attached is the side the feet stick out on. Place the raisin boxes at an angle. See below picture.
Step 2: Attach all the goggly eyes to the applesauce cups and set aside.
Step 3: Break each long pretzel rod in half. Roll broken pretzel rod halves in saran wrap, leaving enough space to fit comfortably over top of juice box.
Step 4: Drape pretzel rob wrap over juice box. Tape down with a small piece of tape, making sure not to cover spot where straw inserts into juice box.
Step 5: Put a dab of hot glue on taped area on top of juice box and place applesauce cup on top.
Step 6: I say this step is optional. You can tape the spoon to the back on the juice box to make an antenna. They look cute with spoon and without. It is up to you.
Hahaha. Look how cute! My little Robot Juice Box Army. These were a big hit with the Pre-K class! Enjoy! I hope this helps you.
