Quarentine Quick Projects
By Anna Agnoli, 6th Grade, AP Giannini
Hi! Have you noticed that you are mostly laying around during Quarantine? Have you been bored on the weekends? Here are some awesome Quick projcts that will help you stay entertained in Quarantin.
1. DIY dollhouse!
Do you have toys? Boxes? Towels? You can make a DIY dollhouse! All you need are at least 2 boxes, tape, and some scissors (you can use folded paper for stairs). You can arrange the boxes anyway you want, ontop of each other, next to each other, and maybe even Diagonal. You could use the towels for carpets, wallpaper, art on the walls (if you decide to put them on top of eachother, the person who will live in the house has to be smaller than the box, width wise) .
2. House Mandala
All you need is a place to build it, items from your house (Pencils, erasers, markers…) and a center. First you start off like any Mandala, you make the center (Plate, Shell, ball…) then branch out! Most Mandalas are normally symmetrical but you can do it however you like! We made ours at the beach.
3. Make a Catapult!
You will need: 1 chopstick, 1 clothespin, tape (Any kind), and a spoon (Can be metal or plastic, just don’t bend the metal one) also the thing you are going to launch should be soft because it may backfire and hit you in the face. First you can attach the spoon to the clip, the disc side of the spoon should be facing the alligator mouth part, and tape them together. Then you get the chopstick and tape it to the bottom.
4. Clip People
These Clip People i made with my friend before Quarantine. All you need are a couple clips, (Depending on how many family members you want) and some tape (Washi tape, painters tape, anything) For the clothes. You should also have a marker handy if you want to draw their faces. You wrap the tape around the pins middle, you can make separate tapes for shirt and pants effect, and then draw the face, you could glue a small piece of paper to the top for a hat or for hair.
In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir constantly until they have all melted.
Add in 2 drops of green food dye see how green it is and add more if you need it.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal until it is completely coated with the melted marshmallow sauce.
Turn the mixture out into the pan and, using a spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, press into an even layer. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, then cut into squares and serve.
