Make It Yerself Monday





Yow!  I think I mentioned before that I love rubber bands.  Well, mom knows they aren't good for me and doesn't let me play with them - she can't even leave any laying about cause I'll find them!  Mom has this special yellow one that she wears on her wrist, and I try to chew it off, I want it so badly!





What I was playing with in the movie we posted yesterday was a cardboard ring.  I guess it had seen better days!  It's almost as fun as a rubber band.

Here's how you can make yer own.
You'll need a cardboard roll, and scissors.  Have your folks help you to cut a ring off the end of the cardboard roll.  You can make it as wide or as thin as you like.

Instant low-tech-almost-a-rubber-band toy!

They're fun to whap all across the floor.

D'oh!

  1. Hi Pip! Wow that is a great idea! We love to play with milk rings (mom gets the rubber bands in the trash too fast for us to see if we like them) but they get lost all the time - these would be a good substitute for that too! Thanks for telling us about them!!

  2. Wow, this is a great idea!!! Sometimes the boys get bored with the entire roll, so cutting it into rings is brilliant. My boys aren't allowed to play with elastics either.

  7. Pip, that's a great alternative to a rubberband!! We like to whap around the cardboard tubes...we'll have our mom make us some of those rings!! (But we bet they will end up under the big cold box too.)

  8. A good safe change from a rubber band is a milk jug ring. Or a rubber band can be tied to string hung off a chair so ya cant swallow it. Purrsonally, we like playin with whole TP tubes. Bunny-kickin them is great fun. An dont ferget cardboard egg carton halves. I love playin with those.

  9. That looks like a super idea. We are getting Mom to cut one up for us right now. But ours will end up under something, that is for sure. What a great idea Pip, thanks
