Originally I was inspired by this amazing felt laptop , but since I don't have a sewing machine, and gluing felt would probably turn out very messy, I decided to simplify the whole thing.
I've noticed how a certain candy box reminds me of a laptop when it's opened upside down.
And the idea was born:
We stated by wrapping it in some white paper. At first I was going to use an ordinary paper glue, but it just did not produce a neat result, so I used the electrical tape instead:
|No, this is not a typo, it is how the Older calls a laptop|
The inner side, the one intended to become the keyboard, was also wrapped in some white paper and I manually draw keyboard keys by using colorful markers. This part was the trickiest and lasted for a while, but the final result was great, as little hands could hardly wait to start typing:
And after she "typed" for a while, some images "appeared" on the screen (we used stickers):
The Younger also liked it, so I'll definitely have to make another one (anyone who has at least two children, knows what I mean ;)
