It was very cheap and easy! Plus there's a funny little bonus craft at the end, made from the left overs. I'm sure people that know me in the offline world will find it hilarious that I, with my yoghurt splattered walls am writing for a site called Alpha Mom! One of my mate's kids actually said about our place last week "Can we go round to the messy house?"
I want to take this opportunity to link to a number of people that have tried the projects posted on Filth Wizardry and blogged about it themselves. So many lovely new versions of our crafts springing up around the world makes me a very happy bunny. Thank you to anyone that got in touch to either show me their own versions, or point me to other people's versions that they had seen.
- Over at Historias de Iraides they had a go at our print out and colour fairy wings from last year. You can see them here.
- Ali at "found in the Ali" made her own no sew top, and used our iron on plastic bag decals to adorn it. Pretty darn cute!
- Bea's crowd over at "All join in" had a go at our Lego hole punch dioramas here. The Sir Topham Hat is by far my favourite! Kid drawings rule!
- Sari's little girls did a cracking job on our tin foil toadstool ring, here at her blog "Two Little Girls". Love the black and white photos with the coloured toadstools!
- Crystal's family over at "Easy Stay at Home Fun", used our print, colour and cut reef creatures to make their own version of our coral reef livingroom wall, here.
- Wonder Mom and "The Fantastic Five" had a go at our balloon and torch lightsabers for a bit of light painting photography here.
- Over at Sternchen Design, they made the cutest little tshirt using our iron on plastic bag method, here.
- The crew over at "This girl love to talk" made their own version of our stained glass tissue paper and glue window, here.
- Jean over at The Artful Parent got her crew making several versions of the leaf rubbing and paint mural we did last autumn, only with lovely summer colours. Here is the first one.
- Regina at "Harmony Blog" asked me to write her a little message for the kids she was teaching at a community Lego class, to inspire them when trying the hole punching card and Lego project. She writes about the class here, and shows some of the other cool Lego projects they did as well as the hole punching, like using rubber bands and making marble mazes! Very cool!
- Dinorah and her little chap got stuck in making our Wall-E out of recycling together. I've only seen two people attempt this craft so far, and both have come out wonderfully! You can see Dinorah's version here.
If you want to see our projects that inspired these folks then I think each of the posts they have written point back to the specific projects on Filth Wizardry. I didn't want to link to our own posts in here and clutter up the whole thing with links when it's supposed to be about what others have done :)
If you have done your own version of any of our projects and would like me to link to them, or if you don't have a blog but would like to share a photo of a project from Filth Wizardry that you've done then please do let me know in the comments or email me :) I love seeing others trying our projects out, and I'm sure that seeing these other versions around the web will inspire other readers to jump in too!
One last thing...
Not really enough for it's own post, but I thought a few of you might like a heads up that OSH (Orchard Supply and Hardware) have bags of kindling for about $6 that are perfect for little builders. Just like mini planks of wood! My crew have had great fun with a bag of kindling from there this week and a box of nails. They made swords, shields, beds for carebears, some kind of weird crate and pulley device for trapping imaginary things. Lots of fun! and cheap! and reusable! Then you can pull the nails out and have a camp fire ;)
