couple tricks for you ♪ ♪ So take a look at these vids ♪ ♪ ‘Cause it’s life
hacks for kids ♪ – Hi, I’m Gillian and if
you’re anything like me, sometimes you get a
little bored in class. I’ve tried bouncing
pencils on my nose. I’ve tried doodling
in my doodle book. I’ve even practiced
crossing my eyes. But what do you do
when you get bored of the things you’re doing
because you’re bored. Never fear. Here some new hacks
you’re not bored of yet. And you can use
something you’ve had around you at
school all the time. Paperclips! These are my flip
for paperclip hacks. First things first, you’ll
need a buddy to have fun with. So here’s my
paperclip buddy hack. For this hack, you’ll
need a paperclip. Straighten out your paperclip. Bend it in a U-shape. Make a small loop,
this will be your head. Bend the paperclip
back straight again, except for the
loop in the middle. Bend each long piece inward
about a quarter of an inch. This will be your arms. Bend the two ends down
to make your legs. Twist the legs together
twice to make your body. I’m going to call him Rick. Hi! Let’s make a couple
of rides for you. First step, my mini
magnificent catapult launcher. For this hack, you’ll need
a pencil and a paperclip. Unravel your paperclip once. You’ll wind up with a capital P. Lay your paperclip on the table and hold the loop
down with your finger. Bend the straight piece upwards. Twirl the straight
piece of the paperclip around your pencil one time. This loop will be
a seat for Rick. Make sure that you
loop under and not over so you can make a
handle for your finger. You ready, Rick? Okay, let’s make sure that
you’re sitting down safely and we’ll put you
inside the catapult. Okay, we’re going to blast off. Three, two, one! Bye, Rick! Wait, I better go get him. Okay. Are you ready
for the next one Rick? Alright. Let’s make
my rockin’ slingshot. For this hack, you’ll need a
rubber band and a paperclip. Straighten out your paperclip. Bend it in half. Bend your arms so the whole
thing forms a Y-shape. Crisscross them. Bend it to make a T-shape. Bend the tops so it
looks like a goal post. To make the string
part of your slingshot, you have to wrap it
around the top part and then you put
it inside itself. So, you put one like
this and then you pull. And then you have to pull
it really tight at the top. Put this loop on your goal post. Do this on the other side. If you have trouble
making a loop, you can just wrap your rubber
band around your goal post. Five, four, three, two, one, blast off! Are you okay, Rick? Thanks, Rick.
