Toy Story 3 Action Links Junkyard Escape Stunt Set

I love all the Toy Story movies. This is a really cool Toy Story 3 game I found. These games are a lot of fun. You can create wild adventures from the massive Disney/Pixar hit! Straight from the hit movie’s big finish, get a firm grasp on stunts like “The Claw” or get carried away on ‘The Conveyer Belt” stunt challenge. Action Links are linkable playsets that simply snap together to create an interactive, adventurous Toy Story world. Once connected, a simple push of a button sets off the fun, creating a chain reaction of events where characters fly through the air, zip line to safety and defend against evil villains, too! The kids will love this and you will have fun helping them put it together too. If you have Toy Story fans, check out the Toy Story 3 Action Links Junkyard Escape Stunt Set.

Fun & Easy to Make Music Instruments

I am getting ready to make a couple music instruments with my son. I wanted to share what we are going to do. First we are going to make a drum. Here are the easy instructions:

Drum

  • empty oatmeal box with cover
  • yarn
  • pen
  • 2 pencils
  • 2 spools
  • construction paper
  • crayons

Before you get started, you can decorate the oatmeal box with construction paper and crayons. Place the cover on the box. Use a pen to make a hole in the center of the cover and in the center of the bottom of the box. Through these holes, pull a piece of yarn long enough to hang around the childs neck down to their waist. For the drumsticks, you can place the spools at the ends of the pencils and secure with glue. Start beating!

This next one is super easy. It’s a shaker. Just get an empty water or soda bottle. Put some small rocks, or even rice and fill about half way. Put on the top and shake!! Hope you have fun making these instruments!
