This is dirt simple, but the rumors of summer hotness reminded me of this little trick I used to do as a kid and I felt like posting it. It was perfect for cooling off and reading some Tintin or Asterix & Obelix. I also had a reason to make some god awful pink monstrosity in SketchUp so what the hell.
Step 1: Quick! Find Stuff Around the House!
- Duct tape
- Flat bedsheet. The bigger and pinker the better. Try and get a clean one.
- Fan. The big box fans work best.
- Hardcover books, wooden blocks, or some other weight. Go and raid the bookshelf.
Step 2: Slap It Together
With the rest of the sheet lying on the ground, grab the middle of the sheet and pull it up a few feet off the ground and let go. Now place the books along the long sides of the sheet.
Step 3: Turn It on and Let the Breeze Blow.
You can add a second "room" or make this bigger by taping another sheet to the first one. For an igloo effect make a long tunnel that needs to be crawled through to get inside.
Congrations! Now you're a boy or a girl in a bubble.
