DIY: colorful discs for the light table in preschool I am not so lucky as my sweet friend Leeanne over at Kreative Resources who managed to find a free set of plexiglass discs to use on her light table. In fact, I don’t even have a light table! But after reading several ideas from others, I have managed to make my own discs and light table. These colorful discs are a spin off of a “not so nutty” idea for making a rainbow suncatcher shared by “Life in the Nuthouse“! The cups alone made for some fun play on a light table so I saved some and melted the rest. To melt the plastic cups, you first need to know that not all plastic clear cups are the same. I bought the red and blue cups (shown above) from Meijer and Garden Ridge and they melted fine. To melt the cups, you need to preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit first. I used a spatula to flatten the cups or shape them a bit while they were still in the oven. Check back to read my next blog post about how I made my own light table… Lovely light boxes from Irresistible Ideas

A man takes a seat on a park bench and opens a pair of suitcases, carefully adjusting a few things inside, placing a few small objects in just the right spot. Then an alarm clock sounds, a pencil comes down onto a trigger and the most entrancing sequence of events takes place, one after the other. Melvin the Mini Machine is the creation of Dutch design studio HEYHEYHEY, and it’s possibly the coolest portable Rube Goldberg machine ever invented. As music starts playing, the choreographed movements begin, flinging objects from one of the suitcases to the other, making their own little sounds. Melvin the Magical Mixed Media Machine was a room-sized exhibit made for 2010 Dutch Design Week, and as cool as it was, it had one big limitation: it couldn’t be moved.
