This is a fun one. It's a 3x5 note made into a sort of hovercraft glider. Previously, I had been blowing underneath the glider, thinking that would push it across the table. I finally discovered that you should blow into the curved part at the front. This is your classic rear-wheel drive scenario. If the power comes from the back, there is a tendancy to for the rear to get ahead of the front. If the power comes from the front, it will pull the rear along with it. It's all physics that I barely understand.
This top is inspired by my love of spintops and an antique top I got for my Birthday. The top was a metal disc that looked a little like a propeller. When you put it on the table and blew straight down, it spun. I then reverse engineered this to work with stickey notes. These specific notes are a little harder to find. I found some on Amazon . . . 1-3/8 Inches x 1-7/8 Inches, Canary Yellow. Fortunately, a few thousand of these should be more than enough to play with.
This is a paper whistle. It is very loud, louder than you might imagine. Be careful around tender ears. I have friends with tender ears, so I have learned to be careful. If you are said friend, do not watch this video. In this video, Figgy just sort of sits in the background and licks himself. That cat loves to be on video.
Here is a way to fold a 3x3 sticky note into a photo corner. Jazz up any vertical surface with your great photos! Pretend it's a facebook wall, even though it is a real wall.
This is part of a series of sticky note toys I created. This is a jumper created with a 3x5 inch sticky note. Push down the corners and watch it fly.
A little finger trick I learned in elementary school.
I went to a juggler's convention when I was a teenager. Someone showed me how to spin a cigarette paper on my finger tip. This is one of those things that I've always marveled at. It's really simple and surprising.
