Another Platy filled year!

Hey Platy-people! What's your New Years Resolution, mine's to be super awesome! Today's New Years Eve, so i've decided to break out the awesome party sauce! First things first, i need to do some really spiffy rambling (like always!) so get ready for rambling in 5... 4.... 3... 2..... 1....
-
-
Okay, 1st, i'll discuss PAPER! So you know how some of you have moms who like to scrapbook? Yeah, well i do. And i was cutting out shapes with the little shape cutters, and before you know it, i had drawn a face, on a paper star, and then a STAR was born! Literally! So Star Buddy and Pickles became friends, and then i thought, "what if something happened to Star Buddy?!" the thought worried me, after all paper is very fragile. So i got some clear packing tape, and sandwhiched him in between, sticky sides touching, smoothed it out, and cut off most of the tape hanging off the sides, and VIOLA! He was indistructable! (Sort of..) He's now water resistant, bend resistant, cat resistant, evil slime monster resistant, well, you get the idea!
Okay, still on the topic of paper, lets make party hats! Since todays New Years Eve, you know you need party hats to umm well, party, and since we dont have any, why not make some?!

Materials

Paper (12"x18 is best)
glue
scissors



Use the 12" side as the height and the 18" to go around the head. To make the cone shape, draw a wide triangle, then change the bottom from a straight line to a curved shape.

You may want to experiment using newspaper to get the shape right.
Use whatever craft material you have on hand for the children to decorate the party hats.
While the party hats are drying, put a line of white glue down one side of the triangle. Then rolled it into a cone shape. Use a paper clip on the top and bottom to hold it together until the glue dries. Then decorate until your heart's content!


Okay, now im gonna change the subject to delicious cold drinks, I love Slurpees but since we arent gonna go buy one late tonight, why not try to have something like it ready for tonight?! This is my own recipe! First, get some juice or soda, put it into cups, and stick them in the freezer for a couple hours, once its getting later and you want to pump up the party with delicious coldness, take them out of the freezer, and dump into a blender, they get like giant ice cubes, so you might have to use a spoon, or run the side of the cup under hot water, add a little extra of the same juice/soda (non-frozen) and blend until a slushie texture! Pour into awesome cups, and drink up! Cheers!


That's all the rambling for now, I have to let you rest your minds from my rambling sometimes, don't i?

Have a Platypus New Year!

Platy-Painting!

Today, i decided to do some painting, and of course, i did a platypus. A platypus on the moon, wearing a viking hat, with a mustache(the platy not the hat), holding a lightsaber! And don't forget the awesome little Platy-Martians! In the distance you can see his space ship, which happens to be shaped like an egg. Well i WOULD show it, but once again, my computer is being a meany! So for now, just try to envision it.. So to make it up to you, i will tell you how to make a mini hersheys kiss for your platypus, Step 1, get a hershey kiss wrapper or some tin foil(if you use tin foil use a piece about the size of a hershey kiss wrapper) Roll it into a sphere-like shape, Pinch the top, and flatten the bottom against your hand or a hard surface, Pinch it until satisfied with the shape, then present to a small platypus or flatypus!

Santa Tracker!

As you can see, KP is in the Christmas spirit, So in the spirit of Christmas, I present to you, the Santa Tracker! It also has a countdown clock, but that clock counts down to Christmas EVE not Christmas Day...

Theres a platypus controlling me!

Well I'll be honest, I don't really understand,
But I fell down this hill now I've got glue on my hands!
And I've got records on my fingers.
(What?)
Records on my fingers!
I got records on my fingers and I just can't stop.
(Don't stop!) I can't stop! I've got a platypus controlling me!
(What?)
I've got a platypus controlling me. Now let me sum it up
It was a strange set of circumstances.
(Strange set of circumstances!)
I fell down the hill, I got glue on my hands.
Now I got records on my fingers and I just can't stop.
(Don't stop! Don't stop!)
Well I would if I was able,
There's a platypus controlling me he's underneath the table.
(There's a platypus controlling me he... whaaaaat?)

(Oh I get it! Platypus is a metaphor for whatever's keeping you down!
Like corporations are a platypus!
The government's a platypus!
Your teacher is a platypus!
My teacher is a panda...
Society's a platypus!
My parents are a platypus!
The media's a platypus, it's all just propaganda!
Yeah we all got a platypus controlling us!)
No, just me!
(We've all got a platypus controlling us!)
I'd stop if I was able.
(We've all got a platypus controlling us!)

I'm not speaking metaphorically,
The platypus controlling me is underneath the table!
Wait... oh wait no he's not! Hey!
There's no platypus controlling me!
There's no platypus controlling me!



The contest results!

Okay, drum roll please!! The winner is: "reeseamidala98"'s little brother! Congratz! :D (i know his name, i just try not to post peoples names without thier permission first)

Here are the stories!

The winner's story:

Agent P vs. Doofenshirtz


Once upon a time there was a platypus named Perry. He was with the Flynn Fletcher family with his two owners, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher. “Hey where’s Perry?” Phineas said to Ferb. Then Perry hid behind their house, put on his secret agent hat and turned in to Agent P when he talked to Major Monogram. “Good Morning Agent P” said Major Monogram. “Dr. Doofenschmirtz is at it again. On second thought, he’s created an inator that will destroy anyone who can’t make up their minds. Good luck Agent P! Monogram out! Carl, you know in five seconds I’ll be going to work. So don’t be clumsy.” “Sorry sir!” said Carl. Agent P ran to Doofenschmirtz Evil Inc. He broke through his wall. “Ahhhhh, Perry the Platypus” said Doofenschmirtz in his silly voice. “Your timing is impossible, and by impossible I mean…. COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!” He pressed a button and trapped Perry in a giant cage shaped like a ball. “So Perry the Platypus let me show you my inator. The Make up Your Mind Inator! You know when you’re waiting to order a pizza and the person in front of you can’t decide on a topping? You see Perry the Platypus I was walking to Doofenschmirtz Evil Inc. when I started thinking of an inator I couldn’t find which one. Ugh, I hate it, I hate it. So I will destroy anyone who can’t make up their minds!” Perry was scared because he remembered that Phineas and Ferb couldn’t make up their minds. That they were either going to build a submarine or the incredible shrinking ray. So he was scared that Doofenschmirtz would destroy them. “Ferb and I can’t seem to make up our minds” Phineas had said. So Perry escaped with his saw. “Should I call it Make Up Your Mind Inator or is that too on the nose. You know, I can’t make up my mind.” Doofenschimirtz said. Then Perry kicked him right in the nose. “Thanks for the headache!” Doofenschirmtz said sarcastically. Perry kicked him right in the hair. “Thanks for the face ache!” Doofenschmirtz said. Perry grabbed some handcuffs and put them on Doofenschmirtz’s left hand. “Well I did not see that coming” Doofenschmirtz said. Perry trapped him on a bar, and grabbed his phone. “Calling headquarters, huh?” Doofenschmirtz asked. “Now I need to return your trap”. So then Major Monogram appeared on the phone. “Agent P, what’s wrong?” Monogram asked. “Oh, you caught Doofenschmirtz. That’s weird, usually he traps you then you escape and….” We mixed it up a little!” Doofenschmirtz said. “Hold on Agent P! Backup is on the way. It would be if we had some, uhhh…. I’m going to make some calls.” said Monogram with a beeping noise. “This backup of yours is taking forever!” said Doofenschmirtz. “I have a travel chess set in my bag over there. Do you play chess? Over there actually.” As Perry kicked Doofenschmirtz. BAM! POW! KABOOM! ZAP! BLAM! “Ughhh….” Doofenschmirtz cried. “Curse you Perry the Platypus!!!!!” shouted Doofenschmirtz. Agent P changed back into Perry the Platypus. “Gurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr” Perry said. “Oh there you are Perry” said Phineas. Candace and Mom came over to the backyard. “See Mom! There Mom! Look at the giant rope jumping robot that Phineas and Ferb made!” Candace said. “What giant rope jumping robot? Mom asked. She saw Phineas and Ferb in the backyard. “Hi Mom!” Phineas said. “Hi boys!” Mom said back to them. “But… But… But…. But… It was right there! But… But.. But... But… But….. But…..” Candace said. “No buts Candace!” Mom said. “Ughh…….” Candace said as she fell down on the ground. “You know Ferb, Perry’s used to being a platypus. He doesn’t do much.” Phineas said. “You know what they say. Platypuses are the only mammals to lay eggs.” Ferb said. “So maybe he’ll lay an egg.” Phineas said. KABOOM! Doofenschmirtz Evil Inc. blew up! “Mom!” shouted Candace. “Give it a rest Candace!” Mom said. Back at Doofenschmirtz Evil Inc., Doofenschmirtz was tired and his inator was destroyed. “Ugh!” Doofenschmirtz said as he threw his inator in the vacuum cleaner factory. The building across town with the giant vacuum on the top of it. Man, you can’t believe that place is closed.

reeseamidala98's story

Papaya’s American Adventure!

Once upon a time, in Africa, Papaya the platypus was minding her own business, just eating some bacon and cheese soup (a.k.a. platypi soup) when she heard a large noise. She waddled out of her mud hut to the dock where there were lots of people with little boxes that flashed when they pressed a button. She soon found out that the boxes were called ‘cameras’, and that the large noise was a ‘toot’ from a large thing called a ‘boat’. She saw everyone get on the boat and heard it was going to Orlando, Florida. Papaya thought for a minute and decided to get on the boat and go to Orlando. She waddled onto the deck of the boat and soon found a small empty cabin with a nice big bed. She hopped on the bed and found something called a ‘pillow mint’ and she ate it. Then she decided to take a nap until she reached Orlando. When she woke up she heard another toot from the boat and waddled out to the deck and saw people getting off the boat. She decided to get off the boat and found out she was in Orlando! She waddled quickly off of the boat and saw lots of palm trees and planes flying in the air. Then she saw a bus with a picture of a castle and fireworks on it. Papaya quickly decided she wanted to go to the castle and live there. When she found the signs that said Magic Kingdom, she decided to follow them. When she was walking by the cars, a car hit her! But instead of being hurt she had bounced! When the car hit her, she was flying! She was suddenly falling over a neighborhood with dozens of houses. She then fell on the grass in a backyard of a house. She saw a big pool connected to a house. She then heard a tiny cry. “Help!” she heard someone say from the pool. Papaya then saw a tiny platypus floating in the pool, who was very frightened. Papaya dove into the pool and saved the platypus, then sat the platypus down out of the pool. Papaya asked what the platypuses name was, his name was Pickles. He explained that he had gotten lost from his owner and that he was very scared and started to yell for help. Pickles then told her that his owner, Chloe, was swimming and lost Pickles in to pool. Papaya told him that chances were his owner was just inside. After Pickles had calmed down, Papaya then explained that she was trying to go to the Magic Kingdom. Pickles then told her about the Magic Kingdom, that it was a magical place that people had fun at and rode rides and met characters like Mickey Mouse.Then they started talking about many things, like all the kids that came to the pool and other platypuses named Pedro, Perriwinkle, Poncho, Peanut Butter Cup, Pizza, Peanut, Panara, that were friends of Pickles and so much more. Then a girl came out to the pool and found Pickles and Papaya sitting next to the pool and hugged Pickles, the girl was the owner of Pickles, Chloe. Chloe then took Papaya in to the house along with Pickles, Pickles then winked at Papaya. Soon enough, Papaya was cleaned along with Pickles and set in a big room and met all the other platypuses. Papaya was told that soon enough she would meet Peanut Butter Cup, Pizza, and Panara when they went over to Chloe’s friend’s house. Papaya then was told she would get to go to the Magic Kingdom soon enough. Papaya had found a home, that she was going to stay in forever.

The owner of a platypus named Cupcake's story

A Day with Perry
Once upon a platypus, there was a platypus. The platypus was named Pistachio. Pistachio was bored. So, he decided to go to his friend, Perry the Platypus’ house, and decided to spend a day with him. Unfortunately, Perry had to work and go ruin Doofenshritz’ evil plan. Perry took Pistachio with him. After talking with Major Monogram, they reached Doofenshritz who had just finishing creating a “Clockinator”, as he called it. The Clockinator could turn any head into a clock!!! When they first arrived, Doofensmritz trapped them in a wire cage with some acorns. Then, a magical squirrel came along and saw the acorns in the cage. The squirrel zapped them out of the cage and enjoyed the acorns. Perry kicked Doofenshritz and knocked him out of the building,where he landed in a giant chicken’s swimming pool.Then, Pistachio knocked the Clockinator off the ledge after Doofensmirtz. It zapped Doofenshritz on the way down and his head turned into a clock! The platypi did their funky platypi paw shake and went back home to enjoy the rest of their day.

Tomorrow's ThanksGiving and the deadline for my Thanksgiving post!!! What do i do?!?! Suggestions?... Anyone?... No?..... Aww come on! Oh well. I'll figure this out. I can do it. Right now we arent an the subject of anything, so i will bring something up. MMOG! I hope i did that right, it stands for Massive Multiplayer Online Game. Which could mean ClubPenguin (which is not as awesome as KlubPlatypus, in my opinion), and doesn't have platypuses!!!!! So decided to see what it would look like if it DID have platypuses....


Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Yay!

Okay, so far i've made 1 out of 2 mini platypuses, made a platypus window/mirror cling, repaired pedro's straps, and began working on an icepack platypus. I feel partially accomplished!

Relax?

Oh im a busy bee! I have to fix the straps on Pedro, Make a How-to on platypus backpacks, post a how-to on platypus backpacks, make 2 mini platypuses(one of which has to be finished before tomorrow), figure out how to make Platypus Potter Puppet Pals, post a how-to on making Platypus Potter Puppet Pals, make cool stuff for Pickles so he wont be sad, Remember to post as often as i can, figure out how to make platypus camera cases and ipod cases, post a how-to on making platypus camera cases and ipod cases, figure out what to write in a thanksgiving-y post that still has to do with platypuses, write this post, make platypus window/mirror clings, make birthday presents for some friends' birthdays coming up, make christmas presents for all my friends, and still somehow manage to live my some-what normal life. PHEW!!!! That was a mouthful. So i need someway to relax!! The cold is what calms me, so soon i will make a platypus icepack, a platypus made with light enough fabric to feel the cold through, and able to open and close with velcro. Thats another thing to add to my ever extending list! And once i make that i will have to post a How-to on it!!! Will i ever get a break? Oh well, at least its fun! :)

Excuses! Excuses!

I know what your thinking, "Chloe hasn't posted since Sunday, where is she?? why isnt she posting????" But i have a good reason, Yesterday I was at Disney's Hollywood Studios with my friend, and today, i FINALLY got to talk to my awesome buddy Jac (I spoke about her in the post

Pictures from Kamp Platypus!.....Or not....) and tomorrow I shall have a platypus-palooza with her(thats Chloe-speak for, me and Jac are gonna hang out and have fun and do platypus stuff). So i have my excuses..

Harry Potter!

Yesterday me and Pickles went and saw Harry Pottor and the Deathly Hallows part 1! It was awesome! So in the spirit of Harry Potter I have decided i am going to make Harry Potter themed platypus puppets and make Platypus Potter Pals! :D Well I might not call it that, but you get the point. Once i make the puppets i will post a how-to so you too could have Platypus Potter Pals!

Pictures from Kamp Platypus!.....Or not....

Okay it wasnt really KampPlatypus, I actually just went camping with my homeschool buddies(not all of them, sadly)... So while we were camping i got the idea we should dig a river cause i always used to do that with my other friend who i sadly dont live in the same neighborhood with(I miss you Jac!!!).. So we made the Platypus falls! It was the perfect size for Pickles and his fellow mini platypus friends! I would show you the pics, but Blogger isnt letting me upload them all so i will try to find a way to show you them soon! :(
Sorry!!!!!!

Sock Platypuses!

So here are 2 different ways of how to make sock platypuses!


Way number 1,this way requires alot of hand sewing:

You Will Need

Step1: Cut your sock into thirds, then remove the heel.
Fold the foot part flat like the sock would be if you were wearing it. Sew across the toe part to make the bill.

Step2:Stuff your sock and sew its back seam shut. Then, cut the corners off of the platypus bill and sew shut. Then to get rid of the corners where the toe of the sock was, I pushed the corners into the sock and sewed the seam into the sock.

Step3:Take the middle section of your sock and cut a strip about 2/3 across for the tail. Round the corners on one side.
Flip inside out and sew from the end of the tail all the way down the side to make a pocket. Flip the pocket right side out and sew it shut.

Step4:Now for the last part of your sock, this is going to be the legs.

Fold lengthwise into thirds and cut a strip. Fold the strip into thirds and cut on the creases. Then, fold the remaining 2/3 of the sock and cut a piece out the same size as the other 3 legs.

Step5:Fold each piece inside out and sew it into a pocket. Then flip right side out, stuff, and sew shut. I made each of the 4 legs a step to show what to do for each leg.

Step6:Now for that strip of fabric leftover from the tail section. Fold into fourths, and cut accordingly. Then fold each piece inside out and draw your foot design on each piece. (I only did two toes because I'm lazy today) Sew up the side, across the top, and back down the other side. Flip right side out and sew shut.

Step7:Now you are going to sew the feet onto the bottoms of your platypus' stumpy legs.

Step8:Sew the button eyes on, then sew his legs on. You can use the eyes as a guideline to where it's legs will go.

And finally, your funny looking sock platypus is complete!


Way number2,this way requires NO sewing:


Sock Platypus Craft for KidsWhat you will need:

A very stretchy baby sock. The one used here was 100% polyester.Sock Crafts for Kids

Tiny rubber bands (You can find these in the hair accessories section of a department store.)

Poly-fil for stuffing the socks

Small black eyes, one finger cut from a glove, and brown felt or fun foam for the feet.

Scissors, and a hot melt glue gun (one that uses low temp. glue sticks).

What to do:

1. If your sock has a cuff that is folded down and sewed to the inside of the sock, turn the sock inside out and carefully cut the stitching and unfold the cuff. This will make the sock longer.

2. Use a small amount of poly-fil to stuff the toe of the sock to about half way to the heal of the sock to make the head of the platypus. Use a small rubber band to tie off the head. (See the general directions above on how to make no-sew sock dolls.)

3. Cut a finger off a glove and curl up the cut end a little. Stuff the finger just a little and then glue the cut end of the finger onto the head of the platypus to make the beak.

4. Fill the heal of the sock with poly-fil so that it is stiff. This is the body of the platypus. Secure the body with a rubber band.

5. To make the tail cut the cuff of the sock into a tail shape. Glue it closed on the sides and stuff it with poly-fil. Then glue the end closed.

6. To make the eye sockets insert a threaded and knotted needle into the place you would like one eye, pushing it through the head to the other side where you would like the other eye. Cut off the needle and pull the thread to form the eye sockets. Tie the end of the thread to keep the shape. Glue eyes to the eye sockets.


Have Fun with your new sock Platypi!!!!!
