The minute I saw these on Liz's blog, I knew I had to make them for teacher gifts this year. They went together *so* quickly, and even though I didn't have Rolos or Reese's cups for the bolts on the sides, I think the Hershey's kisses worked fine. Let's face it, even if I did have the Reese's cups, I would've eaten them and not used them on these boxes...
And here are the girls in their costumes for this year. Kai-Lan and the Not Mad Scientist. Rebecca was adamant that she *not* have her hair all frizzed out and looking crazy, she wanted to be a serious scientist. We're also going to equip her with a glow stick that goes inside a plastic test tube, for her radioactive experiment. Both girls thought of their costumes on their own, I just helped assemble them. Jessica's came courtesy of Target's clearance rack (orange leggings - $2.48, blue T-shirt - $3.98, red hand-me-down shoes from ??? - free), and Rebecca's white lab coat came from my closet, the goggles were free from Lowe's, and the glasses are an old pair of mine with the lenses removed. Awesome.
Getting ready for trick-or-treating in a few hours, hope you have a fun and festive night!
