The Littlest Angel – Movie

This post contains an affiliate link. Title: The Littlest Angel Runtime: 24 minutes It’s been quite some time since I reviewed a religious kids movie for the blog, so my kids and I watched The Littlest Angel yesterday.  Unfortunately, none of us had anything good to say about the movie.  The story was way off […]

Balloons – Flying Mouse

The flying mouse is very easy to make and you can crank them out quickly for a large group.  They’re also interactive–the kids can send them flying through the air which is just plain awesome.  Follow the directions in this Youtube video.  The first part is about making a sword, so just skip forward to […]

Origami – Throwing Stars

Get your inner ninja on with these awesome paper throwing stars.  Makes a great clown weapon!  If you use a metallic paper, it makes them slightly more impressive.  Directions–bear with the kid; he’s trying his best.

Origami – Cootie Catcher

I don’t know why this is called a cootie catcher.  Do you?  The way you set this up is to write one word on each of the outside flaps, numbers on the inside flaps, and fortunes or sayings inside the number flaps.  You know what…just go find a middle-school-aged girl…she’ll tell you what to do.  […]

Origami – Snapper

I’m putting up some origami posts from my old clown blog.  Origami is fun, kids enjoy it, and you can make some things that are actually useful or just fun to play with.  So, without further ado… If you’ve ever been a boy, you will know what this is.  You simply hold the bottom corners […]

Youtube Video Clowning Inspiration

Have you ever encountered a Youtube video that gave you a great idea for a clown gag, skit, or character?  I love to check out funny videos to come up with inspiration.  One of my favorites, which had an influence on my grandma character, is this one. I’ve also found some great dancing videos.  You […]

Fun With Balloons: Learn to Twist Balloon Animals DVD

I recently went on a quest through our local library system to locate all the ballooning resources that they carry.  This DVD by Norm Barnhart was one of the items.  The video is meant for beginners (so I didn’t personally get anything out of it), but someone who is just learning may enjoy it.  It’s […]

Balloon Sculpture Made Easy: 2 DVD

I was a bit surprised that they had this DVD in our library system.  It’s definitely more advanced than the other balloon twisting videos they have.  In this approximately 1/2 hour video, Joe Leffler (Tricky the Clown) teaches intermediate balloon designs.  He does go quickly, but if you have a basic grasp of the types […]

Walking on Water Demonstration

As a fun little activity to go with our Jesus Walks on Water lesson, we made a cornstarch-water mixture for the kids to simulate walking on water.  If you mix cornstarch and water in the right proportions, you’ll get a non-Newtonian fluid.  If you lay your hand on it, it will sink in and feel […]

Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler is another silly VeggieTales spoof.  This time, Larry is Sheerluck (Sherlock) Holmes and Bob is Dr. Watson.  They need to find out who stole the golden ruler, and recover it for the king and queen.  The underlying message is about how friends should […]

VeggieTales: Lord of The Beans

This post contains an affiliate link. I like VeggieTales, I really do, but sometimes I just wonder.  I’m not sure about using a Lord of the Rings spoof to tell a biblical truth.  My skepticism aside, let’s get down to business. Lord of the Beans is the story of how a Flobbit named Toto (think […]
