Kağıttan kar tanesi yapabildik mi?? – Video

Hala çocuklar öyle midir bilmeyiz ama biz çocukken çokça el işi faaliyetleri yapardık, hem okulda hem evde. En sevdiğimiz, kolay ve zevklilerinden biri de kağıdı katlayıp şekiller kesmek ve sonunda da açıp ortaya çıkan simetrik sürpriz deseni görmekti. Hatta bir ara bu aktiviteye o kadar sarmıştık ki evde bir süre her yerden minik kağıt parçaları çıkar olmuştu!

Bir video yaptık, madem yılbaşı teması hakim, henüz kar yağmasa da kağıttan kar taneleri ile kışı şenlendirelim! Hem de çocukluk aktivitelerini yeniden yapmanın verdiği mutluluk bir başkadır, bunu da deneyelim.

Videoda kağıttan kar tanesi yapmak için yarıştık, kısa zamanda en iyisini hangimiz yapacak diye süre de tuttuk. Gerçekten kar tanesine benzedi mi, iyi yapabildik mi, kim daha iyi yaptı, video sonunda o desenler ne hali aldı… İzlemek isterseniz aşağıda bulabilirsiniz!

Sevgiler,

One day I was sitting in the class and I wondered what Santa brought to my desk mate. It was a couple days later than the New Years day.

-Mehmet, what did Noel Baba bring to you?

-Noel Baba? There is no such thing! Your parents lied to you!

While he was laughing, I understood that he was a Continue reading

Life with Louie – A Humorous Approach to Childhood 

Media carries cultures across borders. Movies, TV shows, songs, and even cartoons teach cultures, values and assumptions more than we can imagine. Much of what we learned about America and American culture was rooted in an American cartoon called ‘Life with Louie’ that takes place in Wisconsin. We always watched it in Turkish, so when we saw the original version Continue reading
