Bubble Wand

Travelling recently to UK I’ve found some nice, colourful beads and remembered about the bubble wands I saw on Pinterest. So, it’s time for one more creation!

Viajando recentemente para a Inglaterra eu encontrei umas miçangas coloridas de madeira. Lembrei de umas varinhas de Bolhas de Sabão que vi no Pinterest. Então, é hora para mais uma criação.

To create them you will need only some wire, beads and tools for making jewelry.

I used copper wire and they are quite soft to work with. The kids also can bend it turning easy the process to blow bubbles.

Tudo o que você vai precisar são de miçangas grandes de madeira, pedra ou plástico, arame e ferramentas para fazer bijuterias.

Eu usei fio de cobre que é bem maleável e fácil de dobrar. As crianças também podem dobrá-lo como bem entender na hora de soprar as bolhas.

You can use the bottom of a glass to give the round shape and it’s easy to do it again and again if needed.

Fun to make and Fun for the Kids!

Uma dica é usar o fundo de um copo para dar o formato arredondado e fazer o mesmo quantas vezes forem necessárias, caso o fio de cobre entorte.

É divertido fazer e as crianças adoram!

Today I melted pieces of broken crayons, placed them in some silicone muffin molds, put them in the oven which doesn’t take too long to melt, and poured the melted crayons into sea star shaped ice molds.

So easy and so cool! I wish I had more crayons at home! :)

Hoje eu derreti pedaços de giz de cera, cloquei-os numa forma de muffins. No forno eles derretem muito rápido e daí coloquei-os em forminhas de gelo!

Tão fácil e tão legal!! I só gostaria de ter mais giz em casa para fazer mais e mais… :)

Sling shot is very cool and easy to do.

All that we need is to find a stick in the right format, and I can say that this is the best part of it. My boy loved walking in the woods to find the sticks. We came home with huge sticks too, just waiting for mommy to have a little time to make a very big sling shot for him.

So I’ve found a colourful tape. Got some elastic and I sew it with a peace of cloth. That’s it! :)

This is what we did one week before my little baby girl was born. :)

I can’t believe that I did it with my huge belly, though…

So I had a big cardboard from Ikea, blue wallpaper that I used as a prop in my studio, glue, tape, a pair of scissors and more colorful paper!


My boy uses it as a ‘changing room’ some times… :)
