My Spongey Valentine

My Kindergartener was assigned a "family project" to decorate a shoebox to collect his Valentine's cards in. When I asked him how he wanted to decorate his box he immeadiatley answered "Like Sponge Bob!" So, for starters, I sprayed the box yellow with spray paint. Then I let him stamp various sized dots all over with SU More Mustard ink. I punched various sized circles for the eyes and cut strips for his lashes, cut strips for his teeth, freehanded the arms and open mouth, and cut more strips for his clothing. I used the SU word window punch twice side by side overlapping to create an opening in his mouth for the cards to go into. I also cut out a rectangle from the box lid to line up with the opening in the mouth. I let my son apply the glue to everything and helped him position the pieces. Now, I'm not to crazy about Sponge Bob myself...But my son was very happy taking his yellow friend to shcool on Valentine's Day.
