Glove Helicopter

The most simple things amuse toddlers: my 3 yo wanted me to blow a disposable glove, I did that and tied a couple of knots and voilà, a helicopter that entertained the 2 yo for a looong time. Another simple idea to create something to do e.g. on a rainy day in a hotel without having to take the whole toy box along.

  1. Love your simple craft again!! Haha! This is so ingenious!

    1. Thanks! Accidents happen 🙂

  2. I can’t tell you how many hours have been wasted by our entire family: blow up the balloon. Don’t let the balloon touch the ground.
    It’s the simply things! 🙂

    1. We went to a bday party today were initially the 3yo bday boy was a bit shy. Until the balloons came out. Then there was no stopping of the fun!

  3. Looks great! I would have never thought about that. I have only put ice in them and then put them on my boobs, when they hurt from breastfeeding 😦

    1. Blackberrymum, that is not a nice memory (still remembering how I came home from the hospital with my son, it was late Autumn and the fresh air junkie that I am I sooo needed to get some fresh air after the hospital. So I walked around the block but didn’t think of my sensitive and freshly filled-up milk supply that of course froze. I rather give birth again than relive those hours…)! But maybe from now on you can think of a funny 2yo who is crazy about helicopters and was hovering away with the glove 🙂

  4. Hehe – now I’m sure there’s something else I’ve seen done with a glove as well. What was it?

    Was it the one where you draw lips on your thumb and forefinger with eyes on your knuckle above and make your hand talk? (Did I get that from you?)

    There’s got to be a glove series in here somewhere.

    1. Nope, that is not from me, I never thought of doing anything before this “accident” that was surprisingly entertaining for my son (well, he is *really* into helicopters). But a glove series sounds like something to check up 😉
