If we were wizards


When you live near kids then
 you will believe that everything is possible.
Eg than if everybody has the same dream
 at the same time surely it will be real.

If you had the magic of a wizard 
the bullets would be flowers
the rifles as trombones and bassoons
and the thunders as love poems.

If you had the magic of a wizard
the appetite would be wheat 
the cannons as giant binoculars
and the tanks as Ice cream trucks.

If you had the magic of a wizard 
the soldiers would be clowns
the lieutenants as paper birds
as ballerinas or towers.

If you had the magic of a wizard
the mines would be the dice
the bombs as the juggling
and the crows as doves of peace.

You can also work lyrics
helping you with images as proposed 
by School Empúries de L'Escala

If it were that easy to redraw in the real world like in the virtual
then it would suffice the art and the genius of the animators.

The worst enemy

Sometimes the worst enemy is your own fear.
Life teaches you but it's hard to explain in words.
This great animation can give you an intuition.

The consequences could be fatal
if the protagonists had guns that were lethal.

The imagination above the information

When people grows then information
takes the place of  imagination.
The children with your great imagination
can help adults cults.
The adults can forget their excessive information
 when sharing the children games.
So children have an important mission:
infect everyone with your creativity and imagination.

Look at this video. The protagonist girl
in just five minutes makes a timeless trip.

Thanks for sharing this lovely video that remember us
 the richness of the inner world.

Translation  Icelandic Song by Sigur Ros
"Blue Night Over The Sky"

Blue Night Over Me
Dis-appeared through the window
with my hands
hidden under my cheek
I think about my day
yesterday and today
I put the blue nightdresses
go straight to bed
I pull the covers over Soft
Close My Eyes
I hide my head under the covers
A Little Elf stares at me
runs to me, but does not move
Location - Same
A Elf Looking
I open my eyes
Take exit crusts
stretch and check (if I have)
turned over and all is well
still missing something
as all the walls

Your reflection in the mirror and your spatial orientation

If you play with a mirror can have fun with your image.
Curiosly your image in the mirror does the same as you.
This will help you have a good mental awareness of your body.

If you are lucky enough to play together surely will be a moment
 to be remembered like in this cute video.

Espejos from Daniel Hayek on Vimeo.

It can be very entertaining if you also use 
dresses and hats that you find at your home.
This is a way to practice to dress yourself.

Also note that your image moves to the right when you move the left,
and vice versa, your image moves to the left when you move to the right.
Your image is a bit naughty and can joke with your laterality.
Do not be fooled by the mirror.

In this great video you can see a thousand chances to play with the mirror.

El Espejo tiene 1000 Caras from Juan Pablo Zaramella on Vimeo.

If you do not have a mirror you can play "the mirror friend".
  It is played between two, one moves and the other
 must copy because it is his reflection.
  It is important to focus on that when you move your right arm,
 your reflection must  move left arm and vice versa. 
Thus  your laterality and your spatial orientation
 improve in a fun way.

Making soap

Our crab has learned to make soap and wants sharing it.
If don't throws used oil in the sink then you helps to nature a bit.

Just needs a good strainer to spend the oil after cooking.
Then mix in a bucket with liquid caustic soda helped for an adult.
You must use gloves and mufflers because soda is  strong.
Now you can stir with a wooden paddle until to have right texture.
The mix should be like a good mayonnaise.
You can pour into the mold and let stand until the next day.

Making soap from FLYKIT on Vimeo.

 It is very efficient as a detergent. You could also add scent drops.

If you will not recycle the used oil take it to a suitable location.
In this video from Belgium is clearly explained the situation.

Dandelion song

The dandelion is usually the favorite plant  of children.
They enjoy when blowing their spherical shape.
Maybe they imagine flying with her.

Sure you will like this Chinese song
which we can enjoy on your translation.

Dandelion from BingTangHuLuer on Vimeo.


I saw free bird flying in the blue sky below
No one can tell me how vast the world
I am leaving the wind to go the distance like a flower clouds
I am leaving the wind to leave this familiar place

I was the strongest wind in my flying dandelion
Sunlight can reach places I could grow
I want to fly like the wings of the wind is my flower clouds to go the distance
I want to fly the wings of the wind I leave this familiar place

Oh direction toward the spring sun light dancing across
Oh happy and like a flower so I stopped at the most beautiful place
