Little Man brings home a family project from school every month. This month we had to create a card holder for Valentines day. It could be made from anything- the only criteria was that it be able to stand up. I pinned some great projects and showed them to him, "Do you want to make this cool suitcase or this neat mailbox?" I asked him. He said "I like those - let's make a robot!" So a robot we made. He ran around the house collecting different size boxes and a few cardboard tubes. We worked together to cover everything in tin foil. We made eyes out of bottlecaps and then little man embellished - he added a mouth and some hands to his robot and finished it off with a sign so his friends would know where to put their cards. And this is how the "Lovebot" came to be.
