Original helicóptero de juguete reciclando | Muy Ingenioso. Posted on April 3, 2013 Este es un ejemplo muy ingenioso de cómo, usando pocos materiales y reciclando, podemos crear interesantes juguetes para niños. Perfecto para explicarles cómo reciclar y reutilizar. Lo hemos visto en kedublock y nos ha parecido increíble.

Also, if they were going to have it indoors it had to be able to store somehow when we weren't using it. So I decided to make it out of PVC pipe and fabric. This ended up costing me under $75 since I used $1.50/yard fabric. And the kids LOVE it. Though they were a little upset that I wouldn't let them sleep in there tonight (hey, it's a school night!)

You need 8 1" side out joints (see pictures below). In addition you will need to buy the actual PVC pipe. The picture below is color coded by pipe length and width. The black lines are 4' in 1" pipe (6 total).The red lines are 4' in 3/4" pipe (4 total).The green lines are 1.5' in 1" pipe (2 total).The blue lines are 2.5' in 1" pipe (2 total).The yellow lines are 2' in 1" pipe (2 total). The 8 side out joints go at each corner of the cube. You will need 6 colors of 45" fabric (if you want the walls to be different colors). Building a Catapult for Kids {Simple Catapult = Catapult Games} Egg Carton Mini 'Copters - the craft train. It’s come to my attention that the crafts on our blog are (just a little) on the girly side.

BUT I know there are mums out there with boys who might not be interested in all things pink and sparkly, so here we have made (or rather I have made – the girls didn’t want a bar of this one!) Some cute & easy egg carton helicpoters. Mums, you will need to do the fiddly bits here, but the boys (or girls) can help out plenty, and they will love playing with these cute-as-custard little “toys”. You will need: • Egg Carton(s) • Craft knife and cutting mat • Paint & brushes • Scissors • Paper • Marker • Split pins How to: Cut your egg carton into single pieces, snipping the tall part off and cutting it in half for the tail.

You will need more tall parts (you might need another carton for this). Paint these parts, making a half circle at the front for the windcreen. Like this. Once dry, add detail with a black marker. Glue them together into a cross shape. All done. Most inspiring pictures and photos! Most inspiring pictures and photos! Most inspiring pictures and photos! Most inspiring pictures and photos!

I firmly believe the only rea­son I sur­vived math in school is because I was also tak­ing piano lessons. But even with­out for­mal train­ing, the abil­ity to bang on a drum or a strum on a gui­tar is very grat­i­fy­ing for kids.

When you com­bine the sat­is­fac­tion of mak­ing noise with the sat­is­fac­tion of mak­ing the thing that makes the noise, you’ve got a win­ner! Take a look at these DIY musi­cal instru­ments to get started, from the softer sound of rain sticks to the louder drums and bells, and you can pick the instru­ment best suited to your kids and tol­er­ance for noise! Bot­tle Cap Tam­bourines via Spoon­ful Recy­cle those bot­tle caps, get eco with a branch from the yard, and add feath­ers for the full effect – these shak­ers are adorable!

When my boys were little we did several parties centered around these PVC bow and arrows. Now we have a little girl who just saw the movie Brave , so these wildly fun bow and arrows have made another appearance. The bow and arrows are super simple to make and make great party favors if you are hosting a party!

The best thing is the kids love them. You will need the following supplies: 40″ of  1/2″ PVC pipe (these come in 10′ sticks of schedule 40 thickness) 16″ X 3/8″ dowel rods (purchase a 48″ piece that makes three arrows) 6″ of foam pipe cover (use a 3/4″ diameter piece that is sold in 6′ lengths) thick nylon string a lighter to seal the ends of this string scissors a hacksaw or fine tooth jig saw duct tape zip ties foam cut into triangles (I used 2″ thick foam home insulation cut into approximately 3″x 3″ triangles) One 10′ pipe will make three bows. Cut pipe into 3 equal 40″ pieces Tie a large knot into the end of the nylon string. Stick the dowel into the foam and remove. DIY craft recipe :: how to make clay. By Cathy James on June 10th, 2013 Here’s a super easy DIY craft recipe that shows you how to make clay {that’s actually more like an air-drying dough) and turn it in to some beautiful butterflies.

DIY craft recipe :: how to make clay To make the air-drying clay/dough you will need one part PVA glue and two parts cornflour {UK name} / cornstarch {US name}. Then all you need to do is mix the two together. In a matter of minutes you’ll go from this :: to this :: to this, and you’ll have a lovely, white moldable dough, similar in consistency to ready-roll icing/frosting. Then you can roll out the dough and use some cookie cutters to stamp out some shapes. You can use a pencil or skewer to make a hole in your butterfly, if you want to be able to hang it up. And you can use a dry paintbrush to sweep over the surface and remove any clay dough crumbs that you might have on the surface of your butterflies. Your children can add colour and patterns and symmetry to make each butterfly unique. Ramblings From Utopia: DIY: Pool Noodle Race Track. It's Wednesday my favorite day of the week, when I was little it was the day my Dad took us for pizza when my Mom was at work, sometimes I still fell like a kid especially when were in the backyard holding matchbox derbies, we're so excited to show you our latest summer fun project, we actually it can be used all year round and is great indoors too!

Peg dolls Winter Wonderland. We never get bored of playing with peg dolls and making cardboard toys. It’s icy cold outside so for more indoor fun to survive the winter without boredom, our DIY peg dolls and cardboard slotted animals are ready to take you on a winter adventure! We have a lovely deer and a big moose from a winter forest, plus a polar bear and huskies visiting from the arctic. Simply print and cut out the templates and trace them onto cardboard saved from brown boxes. We have many from Christmas deliveries. How about riding the polar bear like Lyra in His Dark Materials or enjoying a sled ride with the huskies. We took out the peg dolls we made before, but they weren’t wearing enough clothes for this cold weather, so we gave them warm coats and scarves.

Keep warm on your icy adventures and don’t forget to be back in time for a cup of tea! If you’re not familiar with these peg dolls, check out our first project about how to make peg dolls. Download.

We shop a ton online and we often have boxes and boxes hanging around (with no room left in the small, shared recycling bin for them).
