Thinking outside the box - Walkie Talkies

I love repurposing projects. 

It makes me really happy when Miss Lily comes up with a repurposing project on her own.

She wanted to turn a drink box into a walkie talkie.  So we did.

I applied black adhesive paper to the box (you could use contruction paper or electric tape), and some aluminum foil "speakers" embellished with a sharpie pen, and a red felt button.

She loves these walkie talkies and I love that she came up with the idea on her own. 

I am signing off for the weekend. I hope you have a wonderful Victoria Day long weekend! It's the unofficial start of the summer where we are - get out the sparklers!


  1. Genius! A great unisex project too. Way to go, Lily! There's so many cute crafty/sewing projects for girls, but this one's great for both. Happy long weekend!

  2. This is such a great project! What a wonderful repurpose of the juice box. Gets me thinking about other things a juice box could be.

  3. I also love repurposing, and these are great! My older daughter would love them.

  4. very cute! I pinned it to my Oogieloves Party board:
