Why I’m a horrible person… or TALKING Valentine box.

This next project all started yesterday when my 3rd grader handed me this piece of paper from her teacher.

Challenge you say??? Well we started to brain storm my husband, my daughter and I and after about 5 minutes we came up with possibly the most obnoxious idea ever.  I was sort of worried it might be a little to obnoxious but then I read the letter again and it does say the sky’s the limit so we went for it.

We made her Valentine box TALK every time you open it. 
(Here is a video)

Can you just imagine that going off all day in a 3rd grade classroom.
And this is how we did it.
First we got an old juice pouch container, (I had just used up the last 2 that morning it was like it was fate or something)

Then we got a talking Valentines Day card at the store.  We found the perfect one!!  Sorry it was trimmed down before I could take a picture. (someone was really excited to get started)

Then I hot glued it to the top of the box so that every time you open it, it plays.  The only thing left is to decorate it and send it in tomorrow to school, hope it goes over well.   It really is obnoxious I even got tired of listening to it while I was gluing it in.

I don't know what's wrong with me :)
