Provided are instructions for:
Easy Scoop Chairs (chain chomp & piranha plant)
Easy Pillow Top Chair or Ottoman (1-up & koopa shell)
Easy Toy Container (Bob-omb)
Step 1: Your Design
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
~The hight of the base~ If you want the chair to be used primarily for children use a shorter base (like on the chain chomp). For adults you will want to use a taller base (piranha plant) This makes it easier for them to climb in and out of.
~The bottom width of the base~ Be sure that the base you choose is fairly wide to prevent tipping. (top heavy) If it is not you can add some width with a plastic serving plater or lid like I did.
~The shape of the scoop~ If you are designing it for children you can have a fuller sphere like I've done here. If it is going to be for an adult a more open shape/hemisphere works better for comfort purposes.
*If you are still having trouble getting past the Mario Bros theme here are a few design adaptations I had in mind for a hemisphere scoop: Flowers, Watermelon, Orange, lemon slice, Cereal/ soup bowl, & patch work/ quilt scoop. These are just a few to get the ball rolling in your mind.
