DIY Doodle Clock

Image
Telling the time is much more fun when you read from a clock made by yourself! Yep, exactly like what the kids and I did at the DIY Doodle Clock workshop at Club Kembang a few weeks back.


It was Club Kembang’s first birthday and I hosted a free DIY Doodle Clock workshop for kids aged 8-12 years old. It was great to see the enthusiasm of the kids and how lovely their clocks turned out. I was one very proud teacher that day, I tell ya!

Don’t worry if you missed out that day, coz you can make your own if you like. Here are the steps to replicate my Doodle House Clock!

What you need:
-    1 small square wooden board with roof top part
-    Paints and black marker
-    Clock machine and hands

Bento Box by dreamesh LIVING

Especially for you who are looking for a cute, unique and very useable gift (for others, and even yourself!) or goody bag, do take a look at our bento boxes.


 I first made these bento boxes for Kutri’s party goody bags. I chose the colors of Sesame Street (green, red, yellow) and its custom tag.



They make a really sturdy lunch carrier making sure that your kids’ lunch does not tip over and slide out. Better yet, you can custom order them in a color swatch you want and you can also embroidery names on them. Super cool and personalized! As usual, send us an email to make an order. Thank you!

It was another day decorating for an awesome party! Nala’s Viking Birthday Party was something I myself never thought of. But unquestionably I would never let my doubts turn down an idea. Rather, I would turn those doubts into inspiration that sometimes ends up further satisfying than what I thought I could do. Yes, am talking about that cardboard boat you see in the picture... So happy I took the jump!

Other than the photo booth props, there was also a gold dragon egg piƱata made from paper mache. Here’s the tutorial!

-    Double tape

How to make:
1.    Paper mache your balloon with newspaper. If you have never tried paper mache technique, this is how it is: cut or tear several pages of newspaper in pieces, then make a pot of glu…
