Feed The Children...

{Update: you can download the ipod template. Click here.}
Two completely unrelated facts that led up to this project:
1. My oldest daughter is responsible for classroom snacks this week.
2. She wants an ipod pretty bad...she's come home from school a few times with a piece of construction paper with string that has balls of paper attached which she declares is her ipod. The real ipod isn't happening anytime soon...
But, I thought we could have fun with snacks and make an ipod snack for everyone. Here's how we made it happen:
(a sneak peak of the finished product)

We searched for an "ipod shaped" snack...we ended up with these crackers and "cheese". I think another good option would have been granola bars.

We also found "headphones" which are Hershey Kisses.

Other supplies: paper, tape, string and printed ipod wheel and screen.

I took a half sheet of paper and wrapped it up like a present (using clear tape).

I cut a long piece of string, folded it in half and taped it to the back of the ipod. I then taped the 2 ends of the string to the bottom of the kisses.

I cut out the wheel and screen and glued onto each ipod. I allowed to dry overnight! I then put each one into it's own sandwich bag so the strings didn't get all twisted up.

There you go...the finished product!

This is a project my oldest could have helped a great deal with...we were going to work on it after supper, but got distracted with a dance party and a phone call from Grandma!

Okay, can I just say you are the most creative person I know. Seriously, this might have put it over the top. Super cute. Love your ideas . . . now if I could just put 1/8 of them into action at our place!
You rock.

This is completely brilliant. I may have to keep this in my bookmarks for the next decade (til my daughter is old enough to want an ipod.) Found you on One Pretty Thing and I also posted a link to the roundup at One Pretty Thing on my edible crafts column (ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com).

I was going to do something similar, but it requires more WORK!!!! I was going to use rice krispies treats coated with different color white chocolate, and have her picture printed on fondant from gogo cakes, and make it look like an iPhone. This would be more time efficient, since I stay pretty busy. That is such an awesome, and unique party favor!!! ;)

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
