Need chairs? Go find some cardboards!

Inspired by Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, who can build shelters using cardboard tubes as construction material?  If you would like to follow in his footsteps, start small.  Try to build this chair for yourself.

Once you get the knack of it, you can figure out how to create a 2-in-1, in this case, a bed cum chair convertable.

Need more inspiration?  Watch this video then and see if you can create the same.  A Slinky Chair to seat from 1 to 10 people.  One that you will never get bored with as you can change its form in a variety of shape.

Need a drum? Go find a cup instead.

Mummies, if your kids are asking you for expensive musical instrument like a drum, maybe you should get them to show if they have the talent for music by getting them to play with a plastic cup.

Here is a video to give you an idea what using a cup as a musical instrument is like.

It can also be done solo.  You can find a rendition by Calvin Ho on SoundCloud.
