I didn’t get photos of Mabel’s Valentine box before she left this morning. She had wanted a mechanical one, and Dean built this for her and then she decorated it. I took a little movie of it in action but I haven’t learned how to put movies on my blog yet, so here are some still shots of the box in action. The crocodile’s mouth closes on the valentine as it gets pushed into the slot.
There were two different contests in her class, a costume contest and a Valentine box contest, with a boy and girl winner in each category. Mabel won the box contest. She says it was a very fun day.
