Make Lalaloopsy Doll Puppet


Here is my video tutorial on how to make a Lalaloopsy Doll Puppet. My daughter and her friends adore this little puppet. So why not have a go yourself at making one. You do not have to use foam, you can us coloured paper or just draw the doll, colour her in and stick her to recycled cardboard onto the lolly stick. 


Lets take a look at the other Lalaloopsy crafts we have created:

Drawing tutorials for children


My daughter has started on a story called "Mysterious Millie." She wanted to draw her characters, so decided to have a look on You Tube for some tutorials on how to draw faces and hands. She came across this amazing artist called Mark Crilley, who is also a published author. I was totally blown away by her drawing based on his wonderful teaching skills. The Internet is a great learning tool and I think you will agree that there are some fantastic free videos around.  Here is my daughters video showing her having a go at drawing a face like Mark Crilleys art tutorial.



This is Mark Crilleys original video, I think you will agree he is one gifted person.


My daughter has created some very cute drawing tutorials of her own. I love her Blue Nose videos:


Her original Flower Alien design is the most popular out of all our videos! And has had over 75,000 hits.
I think this character is just amazing!   


Many people have commented on her outstanding Fruit and Veg Pirates.
They are so cute I had to duplicate them and make them out of plastic.


Just had an amazing comment on You Tube with regards to my daughters Mark Crilley video:

Quote: "Shes such a great artist, this can be a start of a wonderful future :) and lol i got the first comment :)"

BUTTERFLY LULLABY SPONSORSHIP

BUTTERFLY LULLABY SPONSORSHIP 

CHILD / FAMILY FRIENDLY MUSIC CHART


Why do we need a child / family friendly music chart? Well, I think any parent that cares about their child will admit that we need to make our world more child and family friendly and the best place to start is with good, happy music. Our World needs to care about family and put children first!

MUSIC FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILY CREATED THE BUTTERFLY LULLABY WAY

I would like my daughter and other talented children and families to have the opportunity to create great child/family friendly songs and sell them on a website that believes in putting children first. Children need to be separated from grown ups that do not have the same child and family values as good parents do. Children have the right to shine and therefore need that safe place on line.

Lets take a look at some ways to put across good child friendly music. We can create great songs with books, like my daughter has done here with her singing book reviews:



When children dislike reading, it can be encouraged through song.


My daughter used to hate reading, and when asked to read out loud in class she would make up words. I think you will agree that she has a lot to be proud of now! And I am sure children would love to hear her and others sing stories in libraries or on line, rather than reading them.


TALENTED CHILDREN

When my daughter sang for the first time in school, she made teachers and parents cry by the way she sang the song, it really touched their hearts. To this day I still get children coming up and saying how amazing my daughters voice is. Even the Headmaster begged her to join the choir. My little girl has a problem with memorising things. So you can imagine trying to learn a whole song. That is why the teachers decided to repeat the lyrics. I am sure there are many other gifted children just like her. Can you imagine the wonderful child/family friendly music chart they could create together and the positive impact it would have on children and family life as a whole worldwide.



CHILD'S MADE UP SONGS ON THE SPOT

How many children can make up songs on the spot, which have great melodies? I bet their are quite a few who do not get to shine because families are not all blessed with a good income. This song below is one my daughter made up about being out in the sun and feeling really hot (Burning.) The baby name to a child is that of innocence. I often say to her come on baby boo boo. Sadly in today's music world, grown ups use the name baby as something completely different and it is important to define the two and separate them.


SMOOTH JAZZ MOUSE

This song my daughter made up is total genius. I can imagine a cartoon to go with the song. I also love the way she can change her voice.


  FAMILY JOY SONG Children love their family and this song she made up on the spot! As family we owe it to them to protect their right to a happy and innocent childhood!


In 2009 a famous man from children's TV saw something in my work and wanted to work with me re personalised children's stories. He saw something special in Butterfly Lullaby!


Here are the songs from my Butterfly Lullaby story. There are people that can visualise Butterfly Lullaby as a big musical show. My daughters father is extremely gifted when it comes to creating original music and songs, which is where our daughter gets her talent.


This is my daughters father speaking live on Radio Devon. They played two of his original songs.
On a Welsh Radio station they also played a few of his original songs.

New Moshi Monster Toy Story

MOSHI MONSTER TOYS GET SOLD

In a colourful land like no other, lived happy little creatures known as the Moshi Monsters. 



Like every land across the world there is always someone, somewhere, who just wants to spoil our fun.
Dr Strange Glove was no exception.


He had captured some of the Moshi Monsters and turned them into Gold Statues. 



A group of Moshi Monsters decided to leave their home and enter the human world to get help.



They entered their time machine and within minutes they had landed on earth. As soon as they set foot on the unknown land they were hoisted up by a little boy. "How cute" he said as he threw them into his backpack. When the little boy returned home he showed the Moshi Monsters to his father, who was a Toy Maker. "Dad, what do you think of these? I found them near the park." His father got out his tools and had a go at reproducing one and put it in his Toy Shop.



Children from everywhere wanted to buy these toys so he created templates for each Moshi Monster and got them reproduced in large numbers. 

The Moshi Monsters decided it was time to head back home, as Earth was a dangerous place for toys and if they were not careful they would end up being wrapped up and sold on the shelves of shops and Moshi Monster Land would be no more.



They tried to make their escape, but the little boy had seen them move and now wanted to make sure they did not leave his side. One of the Moshi Monsters managed to escape and made his way back to the time machine to contact the Ghost Pirates. Within an hour the Ghost Pirates were in the little boys house and plotting a plan to set the Moshi Monsters free. 



When they finally all escaped and got back to Moshi Monster Land . They had another job on their hands and that was to deal with Dr Strange Glove!



I loved the story my daughter came up with. If you click on her blog you can read the original story she wrote, which I based the above on. Her story is much better and I love the fact she had the Moshi Monsters travelling to the human world and ending up in the shops for sale. Totally brilliant.

Lalaloopsy Toy Story

Once upon a time in Lalaloopsy land lived a mermaid. She had wonderful pink hair when she was out of water, but as soon as she got her hair wet it turned a wonderful shade of purple. Her fish tail was as blue as the sea and like all mermaids she longed to walk on land. She would sit on the rocks near the beach and watch other Lalaloopsy dolls play in the sand and run freely jumping over the waves.



One day when she was swimming close to shore she spotted a beautiful pink house. It was simply divine. She imagined herself sitting outside under the umbrella and serving cold drinks to her friends.



Mesmerised by the beautiful pink house on the clifftop she did not hear the Little Lalaloopsy calling to her from one of the beach houses on the sand.



Little Lalaloopsy thought she was in trouble and swam to her rescue. "Are you ok?" she asked. The mermaid jumped and tried very hard to hide her big blue tail. Luckily the water was quite murky and the little Lalaloopsy was unable to see beneath the waves. "Yes I am fine thank you" replied the mermaid. Little Lalaloopsy asked if she would like to join her on the Lala Oopsie Playset. Before she could answer ...



she felt a soft breeze above her and looked up to find the most beautiful Lala Ooopsie Butterfly and ...



another, but a different colour. Oh my, sighed the mermaid. How wonderful would it be to fly!



"We have to go now" came a loud voice from the beach. It was Little Lalaloopsy's cousin calling from shore.



"I best go" said Little Lalaloopsy. Will you be here tomorrow? "Yes indeed I will" replied the Mermaid. Maybe being a Mermaid was not so bad after all as she did not have to go home and could swim for hours admiring all the wonders of the Lalaloopsy land from the calm blue sea.

THE END

Here is my daughters original design of a Lalaloopsy doll and sister.

How to make a Lalaloopsy Card


How to make a Lalaloopsy card using a small blank card, craft foam + felt tip pens.

Here is a short video and below is the template:


First print off the template. I should have taken a photograph of the picture I drew outside as the lighting indoors is terrible. Hopefully you can print this off and cut the pieces out to draw round foam and cut out.


When you have cut out the paper pieces use them to draw round the foam, like I did with the hair etc. Remember to flip the blank side over. Once you have drawn round the hair cut out the flower and repeat the process with the rest of the template. 


Here is the finished card. I love to draw curls and swirls so added this pattern with a 
yellow and black felt tip pen.

Wasp flying on a leaf


Wasp flying on a leaf, have you ever seen anything like it in your life? My daughter and I were totally amazed, we did not just see one wasp flying on a leaf but two. What does it mean? It was like watching a wasp version of Aladdin on his flying carpet, except this was a wasp flying on a leaf. If anyone has any information as to why wasps do this, please do leave a comment.

Creepy House Song Book Challenge

My daughter made up this brilliant song for the Creepy House Book Challenge 2013. I wish I could make up songs on the spot, out of the blue like she can.


Here is the amazing artist Chris Riddell, who created the characters for Creepy House.


Look at the amazing illustrations for Creepy House.

Here is my sad attempt at creating these characters for my little girl. She loves spending time with family. Drawing with Mummy and Singing with Daddy. 


This is one of my daughters spooky singing book reviews:


Spooky, Spooky book review by Snowdrop

And yet another spooky story sang by Snowdrop

Burning song (Too hot in the sun)

Here is my daughters original song called "Burning (Too hot in the sun.)" Children define words differently to grown ups. Baby means "Innocent child." She made this song up when we were playing badminton in the garden and it was a really hot day. She said "Mummy, even though I have sunscreen on I am burning."


Snowdrop gets her singing talent from her Daddy!

SINGER JAKSON LEE - MY DADDY CAN SING

My daughter created a song today called "Her Daddy (Jakson Lee) can sing!" One of my pet hates is when people say nasty things about gifted and talented people, "Why are some people so mean?" Our daughter got her singing talent from her father and not me. I am so proud that she takes after his musical ability to create original songs and melodies. This is her song, especially for her Daddy. Ask her who her favourite singer is and she will reply "My Daddy!" All his videos used to come up in Google when you typed in Jakson Lee. Not anymore!


The Enchanted Manor in the Isle of Wight, fairy artists Josephine Wall, Kirks Follies and guests all enjoyed my daughters father's performance. And the owners of the Enchanted Manor said "If they did not have the B&B they would manage him!"


Snowflakes Daddy on the Radio when she was in my belly. Here he is talking about his original songs.



Original song Little Snowflake, I wrote the lyrics, and her father (Jakson Lee) did the rest.


Just a pub singer? I don't think so, as this is one of many of her fathers original songs. And anyway what is wrong with Pub Singers? Some people in Great Britain are so stuck up!


I am proud that he created all the songs for my story book Butterfly Lullaby.


Butterfly Kisses


A song we created as a family.



All the Butterfly Lullaby songs. I co wrote the lyrics and he did the rest. Amazing talent!


This is a poem my sister created and my daughters father turned it into a beautiful song. The song has been on local Radio.


I wrote the lyrics to this song. He did the rest.


This song is amazing. He wrote the whole thing himself and of course created all the music and vocals.


This women's work



Bring him home

 

This is a song I wrote for the Enchanted Manor and my daughters father did the rest.


When he gigs live and people pick on him and tell him he is miming. I just tell him that is a compliment as his voice sounds like it is just off a record. Not every singer has this gift.
