Real Life Moana and the Friendly Ocean

Our latest youtube video is Moana!  Have you guys seen that Movie?  She’s the newest Disney Princess, a Polynesian teenager with dark hair, dark skin, beautiful and chosen by the ocean to return the heart of Te Fiti… Our version of Moana is different though,  it involves mermaids and crabs and more.  screen-shot-2017-01-30-at-10-46-11-am

I think if it weren’t for Bug’s small eyes she could pass for the real Moana perfectly.  Don’t you think?  I even built her a raft out of recycled water bottles, styrofoam and a thin piece of wood so she can sail across the “sea” like the Disney cartoon.  It was super easy to make, just stuck all of the materials with duct tape and super glue and it  worked surprisingly well!

We spent the whole Saturday making this video partly because Moana keeps playing in the pool and we had to wait for her hair to get dry before continuing with our story.   At one point in the video she was soaking wet on top of her raft with her rooster because I couldn’t wait for her hair and dress to get dry anymore.

I added the ocean effects which is our favourite part in the movie.  Hope you guys watch it 😉

SEE YOU SOON !

Cardboard Box Disney Princess Train 2017 with Moana, Frozen Fever, etc.

For someone who just loves cardboard box projects, building a train is at the second of my to-do list.  This “little” pull-along train took weeks to plan and prepare but it was worth it because it looks super cool and very fun to ride on and play.  The whole train is made of cardboard boxes and styrofoam except for the base of the main train which has a thin piece of wood to carry Bug.

I included the newest magical Princess Moana and made the base of her train with styrofoam so that it can sail in the sea.  Check it out guys!

 

Thanks for watching!

 

Preparing for Halloween_ A Doll’s Tale

It’s October ! my favourite month.   I’ve just met with some amazing youtubers and all of them are preparing for Halloween just like me.  I have sewed up all the doll’s costumes in this funny video and I’m proud to say they look amazing.

The video teaches kids all about having fun on Halloween__decorating houses, carving pumpkins, costume parties and of course Trick or treating.    Hope you’re kids will love watching this !

 

Caviteeth Song / Brush Your Teeth

I think most mothers find it challenging to teach their young kids how to properly brush their teeth everyday because I sure did and so does my sisters.  When I could not find any nursery rhyme that teaches just that I decided to make one.  Our fun new song motivates kids to properly brush away those cavity germies everyday 🙂

Fire Fighter Song and DIY Cardboard Box Fire Truck and Fire Extinguisher

Hi guy!  I have decided to do more nursery rhymes videos because Bug loves listening and reading them these days.  I really love this video and I hope your kids will love this too !

FIRE FIGHTER SONG

I’m a fire fighter on the go
Here’s my Helmet
Here’s my Suit
At the red light hear me shout
Get the engine and lets go !!!

I’m a fire fighter on the go
I slide down the big long pole
Ride my truck and hear me shout
Move over, there’s a house on fire !!!

I’m a fire fighter on the go
Here’s my ladder
Here’s my hose
When I see fire hear me shout
Turn the hose on, put the fire out !!!

DIY Corrugated Box Fire Truck

I actually did a tutorial video right HERE ( it’s at 6:08).    But if you prefer reading about it in detail then please continue 😉

First of all, stick two large corrugated boxes together using hot glue (picture on the right).   I also used packing tape inside and underneath just to make sure it’s stuck together.  Then I used a little glue to cover the whole thing with red cardboard paper — just a little glue since the next step is covering the whole thing with packing tape.  This way if the truck gets dusty or foot marks, you can easily clean it with a damp cloth.   (in my case I use alcohol).

The next step is more fun.  Decorating!

Make the ladder out of more corrugated board, just a simple rectangle shape, then design it with red and white coloured paper.  Then I hot glued two little pieces of velcro on the back of the ladder to stick it onto the truck.

To design the water pressure gauge, I used aluminium foil to design it instead.  Then I used s bottle cap for the timer.

For the black pipes- I just used rolled up Cardboard paper and some foil for both ends.

I’m sure you can pretty much guess what I did by just looking at the two pictures.  The whole thing is just covered by paper and the top part is painted by black permanent marker.  The hose is made of Trash bag rolled up, easy peasy.
