Teen’s Chatterbox


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Crafts

Often times, a lot of teenagers get bored during lunch breaks because they have nothing to talk about but only those things that happen in school. They often get tired of doing the same routine everyday and wanted something that could spice up their afternoon. These teens are growing up and they need some sort of excitement to keep their energy rising to meet up the deadlines in school but having such boring routine would definitely mess up their afternoon subjects and will find them sleepy on their classes.

Teenagers must engage in activities that would allow them to express themselves freely without being judged by other people especially friends. They need to have an outlet even just for an hour or two for it would definitely make a great impact on teenager’s life. Self expression is definitely important for teens of all ages because they have so much in mind and in their heart but are just afraid to let it out.

Never run out of things to talk about with your Idea box. All you have to do is fill a box with just about any topic you want to discuss with your friends which includes boys, fashion, and food and just about anything under the sun. Then during break time, pick a topic from your idea box and talk the time away.

Have fun creating your idea box too. You can use a shoebox, an old can or even a cute plastic container. Design it with your names, favorite stickers or pictures of your crushes you can’t get enough of. It’s also great to crank up the box with notes and letters for friends in order for them to be aware of how you feel. It’s more of a communication box that would drive your friends closer to you. Do not be afraid to show how you feel and what you wanted to happen.

It’s really fun to share these memories with your friends because when as you grow up, you’ll be able to realize how colorful life is being a teenager especially when you have your friends around you.

Also, we now have so many equipments available for scrapbooking such as star shaped punchers and embellishment kits to make our work easier, neat and fast. The formed cardboards and those thematic photos with glue backings, cut shapes and of course, those delectable cut-out letters are some of the little stuff that could make your scrapbook delightful. Most of the time, we just cut it out and paste it then it’s all good. Sometimes, we tend to forget the real essence of coming up with a scrapbook.

Scrapbooks are given to persons dearly to us. They may be our sister, mom or a friend. But haven’t you thought for awhile that nothing could be sweeter than giving your friends and families hand crafted designs for their scrapbooks? Designs that are made by your hands from the smallest to the very last detail is the way to go if you want to give that someone special the best gift for her birthday or for a very special occasion. Sometimes, you just want to create something extra-ordinary for a special person in your life who has always been your crying shoulder and your emotion bank, your best friend. Best friends are the people who you always trusted no matter how stupid your actions are. They have remained as your protector and adviser who never get tired of hearing your endless rants and wishes. Oh well, maybe it’s time to give them a simple token of appreciation.


Old Magazines
Patterned Paper
Old photographs

Cut out letters from the magazine spelling out your best friend’s name. Make sure to cut the larger letters enough to be seen in a 3 meter distance. Cut out your patterned paper in a 3.5”x11” size. Make it as artistic as you can. Now, paste the alphabet on to your patterned paper and leave a space on the right side for some of your pictures together and some notes. Glue them and you’re done. And in order to maintain its quality, get to your nearest shop and have it laminated. Leave a small space on top at least an inch for the string.

They can use it as a décor on their doors or walls. Either way, they get a good memory of your friendship.

Story Telling Session inside the Tub


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Family

Kids always get enticed with water that’s why there’s no dull moment for them whenever they take a bath on the tub. They always want to dip themselves in cold water and make a splash. They are excited whenever they see water and bubbles. But sometimes these children are often bored by just playing with their rubber ducky and always look for something to read.

Reading while inside the bath tub could be fun and enriches a child’s knowledge and imagination. I remember when I was young I have this book entitled “Bath time with an Elephant,” it was a photo book but instructional at the same, it was all about the do’s and don’ts’ of taking a bath. Now, I’m planning to get one for my niece but I can’t find them in the local stores anymore instead I have decided to come up with a water resistant personalized photo book.

What we will need:

Book Paper
Ring Holder

There are only five simple steps to follow to come up with a cute photo book that could be brought inside the tub. Take for example, the Comics. Children get fascinated whenever they see photos and no matter how boring it looks like for us, they may find it interesting.

Just simply print out shorts stories found in the in the internet in a book paper, as much as possible try to look for those with photos and limited texts. Most likely, let the child’s imagination work so it’s better if it contains a lot of photos. This is a good sample for an illustrative story. Have it laminated in your nearest laminating shop. Afterwards, when it’s already plastic-coated, cut it equally and punch the right hand corner of the image. Just insert the ring and there you go, it’s done. You know have a water resistant photo book.

A photo book with illustrations of their favorite cartoon characters will be really enjoyable and attention-grabbing. These things will eventually remove the requests for a plastic gun fight whenever they dip themselves into the bath tub. Now, they can enjoy their bath tub experience together with their siblings and friends in an educational way. The kids still love these simple things and when they grow up, they can even share these treasures to their colleagues that they had once a story telling session inside the tub.
