Recicling and disguise

To prepare for this year's Carnival  
you can think of original ideas with simple materials.

A great little idea is to make your own wig   
making wool braids in a net bag
those containing fruits or vegetables.

To pull the yarn through the holes in the bag
It goes great clip hair or wool needle
and you can follow the steps in the image.

To secure the wig to your head  
you can add a ribbon or rubber band
the final contour of the bag.

Now you just have to design your own hairstyle  
according to the character that you want to disguise.

Some faces with caps

You can make
some cool faces
through the

It's a fun way to play with caps. They can dance for you or
you can have funny math, counting with these caps.

Making with clothespins and with other things

 The magic of being kid is that everything can look great.

You can make constructions
with  clothespins, bottle caps or buttons.
You can also get amazing puzzles
 with a group of old containers.

 So we're going to put a box of treasures
before bringing so much junk to the recycling sites
because they are a breeding ground for a lot of learning.

And for the record that the idea is of all
the great little explorers
who usually put face in astonishment
to what others consider  rubbles.

We delights his excitement when opening a drawer
and choose any  spoiled stuff
and then turn it into something renewed.

Serve this simple example video
with the set of letters that you can mount
through simple clothespins.

We liked the face of hapiness of its discoverer 
and its special spelling of the alphabet.

More little great ideas

Hypnotic tick tack.

Clock Pendulum Animation from Niall Doherty on Vimeo.

You can make your own pendulum clock
with a cardboard box,
wire, a cork and a counterweight

This watch does not mark the hours,
 but his sweet swing can make you drowsy. 
The cork holds clockwise.
 You can move them by hand to study the hours.
