COOL CAT PLAYDOH HEADPHONES


Confession.

Yesterday I put on a pair of headphones to drown out the noise in the house. I really, truly just couldn’t take ONE MORE scream, argument, whine, or even a happy-but-way-too-loud rendition of Into The Unknown.

And now that these Cool Cat Headphones exist, I might be wearing my headphones a little more often

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • playdoh

  • pipecleaners

  • string

  • scissors

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Create two balls of Playdoh. Flatten each ball gently with the palm of your hand and then use your fingers to make a bowl-shaped area in the center of each one.

  2. Curve a pipecleaner and connect each end of it to one of your Playdoh “earpieces”.

  3. Cut smaller pieces of pipecleaners for the ears. Bend them in half and then form a triangle shape as you attach each one to the other pipecleaner.

  4. Attach a string to one of the earpieces.

  5. At the end of the string, add a small cylinder of Playdoh to act as the jack.

  6. VOILA! You’re ready to rock out!


ACTIVITY EXTENSIONS:

  • Venture into other types of headphones! Think unicorns, dinosaurs or teddy bears!

  • Open a “headphone” shop! Create a company name and logo to go along with your products!

  • Bigger kids might be interested in researching the evolution of headphones.

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • What type of music do you like to listen to?

  • When do you like to listen to music?

  • Who is your favourite singer or musical group?

  • What is your favourite song?

  • What songs make you feel happy?

  • What songs make you feel sad?

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • ability to manipulate the Playdoh into different shapes and forms

  • unique ideas or techniques

  • colour choices

  • stability of final design

  • ability to elaborate on design

I’m pretty sure every mom needs a pair of these beauties! How good will we look when we storm off to listen to our noise of choice?

Happy connecting!


XOXO,
