How-to-make-a-juice-box-rob

My 2nd son has always been a little bit obsessed with robots.  From the moment he could talk he made up a “robot” song and dance and we heard it non-stop for about a year.  It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.  Then he taught himself to beat-box to go along with the robot song and he entertained everyone he could find.  Sometimes I wish for those days again.  So naturally when he had his 6th birthday and had the chance to bring snacks to his kindergarten class we had to look for something along the lines of robots.  This juice box robot was the perfect snack!

This is all you need:Juice Box Robot supplies

 Stick pretzels for arms

Juice boxes for the bodies

Applesauce for the heads(make sure they have a foil lid and not plastic or it will melt)

Starburst or other square candy for feet (I’ve even seen them made with small raisin boxes for feet.)

Plastic wrap for attaching arms

Google eyes for, well…the eyes

Spoon to attach to the back for antennae.

And of course a glue gun to put them all together.Juice Box Robot feet

Put hot glue on four Starburst and set juice box on top.Juice Box Robot arm

Break one stick pretzel in two pieces and using a square piece of plastic wrap, cover the ends of pretzels and then roll them in plastic wrap.Juice Box Robot Arms

Use a piece of scotch tape to attach pretzel arms to juice box and then put a dab of hot glue on the tape to attach the applesauce head.  Add some google eyes and tape a spoon to the back and, Voila, we have ourselves a fun robot snack.Juice Box Robot

 These were a complete hit at Kindergarten except I heard the kids had more fun playing with them than eating them. 😉
