Materials

  • Tyrone Gadget Holder Template
  • 1 empty 24-pack crayon box
  • Foam sheets in brown, orange and a background color, such as blue
  • 2 wiggly eyes
  • Small piece of clear packing tape
  • Pen or marker in black
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Removable hanging strips (from local hardware store) or a hook for hanging
Tip: We used craft foam, but sturdy card stock will work as well.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Prepare the crayon box

    <br>Open the top of the crayon box and cut off the top flap. Cut a U-shape in the front of the crayon box for an opening. Open the bottom of the box and snip out a piece to allow the charger's cord to run out of the bottom of the box. Reinforce the bottom of box with clear packing tape.

  2. Step 2: Print templates and create Tyrone

    <br><li> Using the templates, trace Tyrone's head onto orange foam, the antlers piece onto brown foam, and the cover pieces onto blue foam. <br><br> <li> Cut out all of the pieces <br><br> <li> Glue the cover pieces onto the front, top and sides of the crayon box. <br><br> <li> As the glue dries, use a pen or marker to draw on Tyrone's mouth and nostrils on the orange head.<br><br> <li> Glue the antlers to the back of the head. Then glue the head, complete with antlers, to the front of the box. Let dry.<br><br> <li> Add the wiggly eyes, and then draw one eyebrow over each.

  3. Step 3: Set up the charging station

    <br>You can hang the charging station on a wall near the outlet in one of two ways: Either poke a hole for a hook so it can be hung on the wall. Or, add removable hanging strips to the back and another to the wall.<br><br>

  4. Step 4: Get charging!

    <br>Drop Dad's phone, PDA, or MP3 player into the box. Slip the cord from the charger up through the bottom of the box, plugging it into the electronic. When the charger is not in use, keep the cord pulled up through the bottom of the box where it is easily accessible next time charging is necessary.

Tip: If your child is too young to cut out tiny pieces, do it ahead of time. Then put kids in charge of gluing.
