Decals Meet History

My son and best friend decided to team up for this year's History Fair project... They both play baseball together and originally planned on doing their project on something sports related.  Somehow they went from that to the history of milk pasteurization.  Seriously, you never know where you may end with these two boys.  They have such creative minds.  Speaking of their creative minds... they managed to make this project on milk pasteurization FUN!  

My son thinks like me, so of course the use of decals had to come into play somehow for their project.  The two boys are not only creative, they are both VERY silly too.  Watching them work together was (and always is), quite entertaining.
Adding vinyl decal cow prints to their overgrown milk carton.

The milk carton was built out of my new dining room light box (which was a great buy - it was marked 69.99 at Home Depot but scanned as 19.99 as a clearance price). The giant straw is a shipping tube with a vinyl decal stripe.

 The final project

 No project is complete without a self-proclaimed grade!

 I think the project turned out GREAT and I am really proud of them!


  1. It's nearly impossible to find experienced people in this particular topic, but you sound like you know what you're talking about!

  2. I hardly comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Decals Meet History".
    And I actually do have some questions for you
    if it's allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of the responses look like coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  3. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!
