Flat – Monthly Unplugged Project

By , April 1, 2010 4:57 pm

Well this month certainly FLEW by! With an Odyssey of the Mind competition, a few cases of strep throat, and a week off for a Spring Break of beach, sun, museums and roller coasters in San Diego, it is now April 1st before I even realized it.

I guess I didn’t get to a sphere Unplugged Project this month, but maybe we’ll do one even though the month is over, no promises though.

Thanks to all who did join in with the March sphere project.

It is now time to announce the Unplugged Project theme for April:


The linky is below.  Have fun!!


If you are wondering what the Unplugged Project is, then please read more about it here. We’d love to have you join in!

The basics are the following:

  • Please only link if you have done a project that is related to the theme. Don’t just put your website in there because you like the idea of the project. I appreciate the support, but if I don’t see a project, then I’ll have to delete your link.
  • Please don’t link until you actually have a post to link to. The post should not simply describe an intention, but document an actual completed project.
  • When you link, please link to your POST, not just your blog. I am trying to build a library of project ideas, so we want people to always be able to find your project in the future. If you link simply to your blog, they won’t be able to find your post later on. (Feel free to email me if you have a question about this.)
  • Don’t worry about the “accuracy” of your connection to the theme. Be creative, have fun, and think “outside the box” if you wish. For example, the theme was once soft and we made moth feeders out of soft cotton balls. Another time the theme was kitchen and we made Oobleck because it was made with cornstarch which is a substance you find in the kitchen, right? If you think about it, you can find a connection with almost anything and that is what is really fun!
  • If you have the time, energy, and inspiration to come up with more than one project for sphere that’s great! Feel free to link to each sphere project separately in the linky.
  • If you have no blog, then please leave a comment on this post with a description of what you did. The more ideas we get, the better!
  • It takes a lot of time and energy to put this project together and I would greatly appreciate a link to Unplug Your Kids in your project post. Thank you and enjoy!

  1. I hope you get a chance to do something flat this month :) But, life before blogging, for sure.

  2. I LOVE the look of this. Hmmm, so flat. I’ll have a think and post something on my blog. I love a challenge and I love doing fun things with my children.

    We did a bear hunt. This involved a teddy bear and book prepared at our favourite bookshop, a map and clues. After following the clues around the map, we enjoyed hot chocolates and the new book at the bookshop. I took plenty of photos and later we made a small book telling the story of our adventure. This was less ‘unplugged’ as we did a lot of the work on a word processor.

    But at the end of it, we have two flat representations of our 3D journey – a map, and a book :)

  6. […] have always wanted to try making paper so I confess, that is why I chose the theme flat for this month’s Unplugged Project (paper was already taken).  We finally did it and it was […]
