Call Me, Maybe.

Hey ya'll. Good news, we had school three days this week!! For those who don't know we missed Monday and Tuesday thanks to Hurricane Isaac. But I'm happy to report that we got to go back Wednesday.

I'm also happy to share with you an awesome project from a reader of mine. Last week I got an email from Stephen who has a daughter in Kindergarten. His daughter uses whisper phones at school, and he wanted to make a whole set for her and her classmates to use at home. (How lucky is that teacher to have such an involved, caring parent???) Stephen emailed me with a few questions about my post. You may remember my whisper phones from the post:

His main concerns were:
1) Will the spray paint poison the kids?
2) Did the spray paint hold up?

And my answers are:
1) No.
2) No.

As long as you air them out for a few days before use, there's no reason the spray paint is harmful to the kids. However, even the made for plastic Krylon spray paint I used didn't hold up. It started to get chipped, and I had to respray them over the summer. I emailed this pin  to Stephen and told him that if I was going to make mine over, I would go the decorative tape route:


A few days later and he emailed me the cutest thing I have ever seen. Check out these whisper phones he made for every single kid in the class to practice at home with:

Can you read the tag?
"Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. But here's a whisper phone, so call me maybe."

I DIE!!!!!
