The Galaxy Adventures Exhibition

Click to enlarge

Wow, we got so many great planets for our new Galaxy! They came from Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Poland, South Africa, Sweden and UK. Kids and moms have had a good time smooshing with papier mache and paint, telling fantastic stories about their new planets and the inhabitants. Thank you to everyone for creating this fantastic Galaxy! Here is how it goes:

Once upon a time very far from here, a new galaxy was discovered. A galaxy full of wonderful life, mystic creatures, variuos species, great planets and stars. So amazing, that you have come and see it for yourself. So lets take a ride together into the big unknown, and visit a new world.

Planet Volcano
Once upon a time there was volcano. It spit out a huge clumb tha
t rocketed into to space.
On the way it was hit by thousands of rocks and they made crate
rs and such and it became a planet. Then some bacteria noticed the planet and took over it. They were green big bacteria and there were thousands of them. They were cone-shaped and they only had one eye. They made a spaceship and named it Speedy. They went to holidays on that.

Planet Jakob
“This is planet Jakob. It is a volcano planet. It has a volcano on top that has a face, on one side it is normal and if you turn it, it is a scary face with frowning eyebrows (scary face seen on the picture). The volcano has glowing lava rocks inside (but you can’t see them ‘cause they are tucked inside). The planet also makes a scary sound (it was meant to be a huffing sound but we made do with some rice inside the planet, like a maraca). The only one living on the planet is the dragon “Joel” who lives in the volcano. When the volcano was angry it spat out the three rocks. The circle on the side is a sun, but it has no beams and it glows in the dark if you turn the light off in the bathroom. I like the planet ‘cause the colours look very pretty.”

In the STARWARS-films, deathstar is a spaceship, but Rasmus made it a planet. It's a place for the dark force and home of Darth Vader. Everything is black, no fun to be there ... at the moment they fight against Yoda ... may the force be with him :)

Far away in the distant galaxy of Furango two aliens were exploring. They went through the galaxy looking at all sorts of planets, inhabited by bizarre and strange species. They landed on one of the many many planets and emerged from their ship. They explored for years and years but all they could find was huge zonkoid blossoms. As they were returning to their ship they heard a huge whirr, whirr, whirr... The inhabitants of the planet started to scatter screaming: "The Creltids are coming, the Creltids are coming." Huge butterfly like creatures, bigger than you have ever seen before descended and began to eat the zonkoid blossoms. Eventually they left, leaving only a few tattered blossoms in their wake. Getting back to the two aliens, after many years of careful exploration, they decided Furango would be a good place to settle. They built a farm and harvested their own zonkoid blossoms. They were happy, but they always had to watch out for Creltids. The End.

Ännu en lektavla

A ville göra en lektavla, dvs ett collage med rörliga delar som vi gjort tidigare här och här. Så i väntan på den stora Galaxy Adventures utställningen, så gjorde vi en rymd bild, A kallar den Star Wars, och om man har fantasi till det så liknar det visst lite. Visst?!

Another play-collage with moving parts, as we also did here and here. Waiting for the Galaxy Adventures Exhibition we made a space picture. A calls it Star Wars, and if you have enough imagination you actually can see that. Right?!

Halsband av rönnbär

Vi plockade rönnbär, och trädde dem på en tråd, det blev ett halsband. Sen har de torkat i flera veckor, och nu var de äntligen så hårda och skruttiga att de kunde träs runt halsen.

We picked rowan berries and made a necklace. They dried for weeks until they were all hard and shriveled.

Last call for entries

Remember to join our Galaxy Adventures Exhibition for all kids! Deadline is Monday 27th of September. Read more about how to enter here.
And get some wonderful inspiration here, here, here and here! A sneak peak from some of the contributors!

Happy monday - binocular

Det regnar och A är förkyld. Så vi piggade upp oss med en kikare av toalettpappers rullar och tejp. För visst blir världen ibland vackrare av att ses igenom färgat glas (plast)?

It is raining and A has caught a cold. We bringhtened our day with a binocular of toiletrolls and tape. Does not the world look a bit happier through some coloured glass (plastic)?

Monotryck med kakelplatta

Jag har länge velat göra monotryck med A, men inte haft någon bra platta att måla på. Hos Let the children play fick jag tipset att måla på en kakelplatta, och det hade vi faktiskt en hel låda av uppe på vinden! A strök färg på plattan, vi använde akrylfärg, och så kunde hon rita direkt i färgen med änden på penseln eller direkt med fingret. Jag hjälpte med att lägga pappret ovanpå plattan, och så strök vi lätt med handen över, och lyfte försiktigt upp pappret igen. Man kan fortsätta att måla vidare på plattan igen, eller tvätta av den mellan varven.
Jättefina tryck, ser proffsiga ut med den vita kanten runt, det är bara att signera och sälja dyrt på galleri!

I got the good tip to use a tile for mono prints from Let the children play. We actually had a case of plain white tiles on the attic! A used acrylic paint and painted the tile before drawing with a stick or finger in the paint. We pressed the paper against the tile, and stroke gently over it before lifting it up again. You can continue painting straight on the tile again, or clean it after each time.
I like the look of them, looks real proffessional, now we just have to sign them and sell them at the gallery!
