Courtesy Of Curious George!

On Monday morning Owen woke up not feeling good so we stayed home from school. While chilling out watching Curious George, Owen decided he wanted to make a vending machine just like George did. I kept telling him that George is a monkey so he can do things we can't do just like the show tells the kids, but he was pretty adamant about it. I decided to give it go!

We had one of the car seat boxes in the garage so I decided to cut square flaps in it for the food. Then I drew in circle buttons to push and then cut slats for the coins to go in. The last touch was the big flap at the bottom to pull out your purchase. With a little imagination we had a vending machine. Of course Owen pointed out over and over that it didn't have a turny thing in it like George, but I think he really liked it since he was pretty excited to show it to Daddy when he got home.
