Introduction: Toddler Proof Your Electronic Device Using Ear Plugs

About: Hey guys it has been awhile but I am preparing for a new wave of instructables following a partnership with Banggood.com! They have a ton of cheap parts for just about everything. From drones to Arduino to b...

The title explains it all folks. It only takes a few minutes and is very cheap.

Parts and Tools
>A skin that fits your electronic device. (I didn't have one, although I will post photos of one on my kindle.)
>An Electronic Device

Step 1: Cut and Glue Earplugs

Start by sliding the skin onto your device. This will protect your phone from the glue. MAKE SURE not to get any glue on your device, just the skin. Next, cut your earplugs in half. Save the rounded ends for the front and sides and the blunt ends for the back. I cut the earplugs intended for the front, in half again so that it wouldn't interfere as much with finger movement. I put 6 on the bottom, 8 on top, and 10 around the sides of my cheapy pay for minutes phone. When you complete this and your device looks both extremely ugly and very orange you are done.

    Unless you get like some sort of plastic to cover part or all the phone with :P It could be like a glove or something so the ear-plugs could come off easier.
