Day #20 ‘Boo’ Lightyear To Starfleet Command!
by Sara le Roux, Owner and Inspirer at The Creation Station Penistone and District
I love that there are some children’s movies that are simply timeless. We have movies on DVD that I remember buying on VHS when I was in my teens – yes, I am guilty of buying ‘children’s’ movies like ‘Bugs Life’ and ‘Antz’ and howling with laughter whilst I was studying at University.
My absolute favourite has to be ‘Toy Story’. I adored this movie when it first came out in 1995 and it always amazes me that the toy shops still sell out of all the merchandise from the films. Boo is crazy for ‘Woody’ and ‘Buzz’. If we’re out and spot one of the toys he drags me over to look at it – don’t worry, Grams is on the case for a Christmas ‘Toy Story’ surprise’!
His latest thing is to run around the house and pretend to ‘laser’ us by pointing his arm at us and pressing on his wrist – like Buzz Lightyear does. What my ‘Boo Lightyear’ needs is some laser cuffs!
What You’ll Need
- Toilet roll tubes x 2
- Paint/Felt Tips – we used paint sticks for a change – the same effect as painting without the mess!
- Something for your laser button – we used some of these acrylic gemstones in lovely bright colours
- Double sided sticky tape – unless you want to glue your gemstones on – Boo couldn’t wait that long!
Boo decided that Mummy should also paint one of his cuffs so we spent some time putting lovely bright colours onto the cardboard tubes.
Next we added our gemstone ‘laser buttons’ and all that was left to do was cut down the tube lengthways on the opposite side to your ‘button’s – this is how your little one will put the tubes onto their wrists.
Zaaaaaaap! Laser Mummy!
Hmmmm next stop jet packs?
Day #20 DONE! 80 to go!
