Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Multicolor wool pom-pons

Red, yellow or green, big or small, you can do them anyway you like it.
Pom-Pons, little crazy wool balls, are easy to do and your restless child will love that.
With pom-pons we can do a lot of different things, we can do little dolls, multicolored worms, book markers, apply them in clothes, frames or just keep them in a huge box to play with. The most important is that they are easy to do and kept.

What we need
  • wool, in your favorite colors,
  • scissors,
  • 1 empty cereal box.
How to: 
  1. Start by cut your card box in 2 plain card sheets;
  2. After that draw a circle in one of the cards, use a glass, if you use a large glass the pom-pom will be bigger;
  3. Inside that first circle draw a second one, much smaller, they must be centered and exactly aligned;
  4. Cut the large circle, and the center hole you draw;
  5. Repeat the procedure, you need 2 circles, you can reuse them;
  6. Hold the two circles steady in you hand, and follow the scheme in figure:

Use two colors of wool,
Garnish the wool balls with googly eyes, or legs, antennae, anything you want.
You can trim the pom-pons with the scissors.

Et Voilá!
Play with colors and do some art.
