We are having some sort of skate board revival over here. Apparently if you don’t skateboard every moment of every day, rain or shine, your brain can’t function and you can’t get your math done!!! My kids know the way to my heart… Needless to say I sense a skateboard party looming in the next couple of months! But to tide us over we made mini-skateboards… quick, easy and they look so cute and funky! This is what you are aiming for.
Let’s meet the Players:
- ice-cream sticks, on the day someone had been through my supplies so we used thick card cut to the right shape.
- markers to decorate
- toothpicks – we had a couple of colored ones
- beads – all sorts of different ones, we had to fiddle around a bit to find some that fitted over the ends of the toothpicks.
- project glue – just a dash.
Let’s Play the Game:
Step 1: We took our cardboard decks and colored and patterned and designed.
Step 2: Everyone chose their own color sticks and beads… this was by far the longest step in the process!
Step 3: We turned the “decks” over and put a blob of project glue on each end where we wanted the axels to go.
Step 4: Waited for them to dry… which meant rifling through the bead collection and claiming hundreds of beads for potential projects!
Step 5: Threaded our beads onto the axels for wheels.
Step 6: Turned them over and we were good to go.
Step 7: That’s it! Dash back outdoors to skate some more… I think these would make a great party craft!!!
