I meant to post about this when it started but instead, I’m posting about it a week after it ended. Is anyone surprised? Nice to know that even with a new year, some things never change. : )
Anyway, LiEr over at ikatbag.com hosted a fun series all about lights and what you can do with them, especially when making kids toys. She had some incredible ideas herself and also rounded up a few guest-posters, including me!
Here are the projects -- click on the photos to go to each post.
Day 1: Light Boxes and Lanterns (made from a storage tub and whipped cream carton, respectively)
Day 3: Christmas Tree Nightlights (made by LiEr, with her kids)
Day 5: Cardboard Dollhouse (guest post by me from here; now you can see the “wallpaper” I was taking a break from in my last post – tee hee)
Day 6: Car and Runway (another guest post by me because we were having so much fun adding lights to anything and everything; I’d wanted to make a runway, as in airport, but designer-wannabe Sophie requested a runway, as in fashion!)
Day 7: Bulb How-Tos, a Starlit Stable, and a Steady Hand Game (again, by the knows-no-bounds LiEr, and her daughter Emily too)
Day 8: LED How-Tos and Traffic Lights (not only does LiEr make stuff, she explains stuff so thoroughly, and entertainingly too)
And finally, Day 9: Trainville (a train, some stations and an amazing tunnel/bridge on a huge expanse of cardboard just waiting to be decorated with tracks and trees and who-knows-what by her kids)
Hope you enjoyed the show! I’m so glad LiEr included me in the line-up. Playing with lights is a LOT of fun!!!
