I finished the robots for my grandson to give out to his teachers and classmates at Friday's Valentine's Party. All 30 of them! Each one consist of 1 juice box, 1 pipe cleaner, pair of squiggly eyes, 1 box Nerds, 2 Starbursts and 1 chocolate heart. Only issue that popped up was they are suppose to have feet but unfortunately I could not attach them to the bottom of the juice boxes. I think the surface was the problem. The directions suggested additional Starburst candies for these but they didn't work. So I tried different varieties of candy as well as 5 different types of glue (tacky, super, hot, gorilla, and elmer's paste). I even tried clear packing tape. No luck! They just wouldn't stick so I made the executive decision to forgo feet and make them "special".
I hope my grandson and the kids like them. The grandson is giving out V-day cards as well.
