First A and B worked hard to paint the boxes.
I used the packing tape to attach the arms, though you could use brads or any number of things to attach them so they could even move up and down. My poor girls just get immobile arms. It’s all good since he doesn’t have legs anyway as B was quick to point out. But he’s a pretty handsome robot torso if I do say so myself.
This guy still needed a face. Hey, I deprived him of moving arms and legs, the least I could give him is a face so he can express his displeasure. I had some foam stickers I purchased from the dollar store, and we used those for the face. Okay, I phoned it in on the face. Here’s the deal. I had two 3 year olds whining “Is he ready yet?” over and over, and while I had visions of doing some cool cut outs or using bottle caps, I just slapped on some foam pieces and called it a day. If you have older/less whiny kids it would be fun to let them be creative with the face. You can even add some yarn hair. Who says a robot torso can’t rock some glam hair?
The robot was a big hit. Here are A and B enjoying their new friend.
