Does anyone remember creating Valentine’s Day boxes for school?

I know I remember those days. The memories came rushing back to me when I heard my nieces say they needed the “box.”

And then my brother John, spoke up and asked about building a combine or a tractor, and, of course, Maddison and Taylor jumped at it!

What could be better? Yes, they love their pink and purple, but they also love machinery. (They get that it honestly in a farming family!) So they started working on them and the project took some team work.

They started out with cardboard and some paint.

And of course, the tractor couldn’t hold the valentines. It would need a grain cart for that duty.

So this is what it would begin to look like.

Meanwhile, Maddison was working on decorating her combine with hearts.

Now comes, the interesting part. Getting these to fit on their desks. Don’t worry though, the combine has a folding corn head that goes from six row to 12-row, and the tractor and grain cart can be set up at a 90-degree angle.

Here are the final results!
