Paralympics 2012 Trash Pack Game Madison OZ

Ok I am just about to create the most amazing game using the Trash Pack toys to celebrate Madison coming over to London for the Paralympics 2012.  Only a few days ago I was searching Google when I found a website with my Great Grandad's name and his Wife's details. Nan died not knowing hardly anything about her real family as she was an orphan at the age of 4 years old. So excited is not the word. Who knows we may all get to meet our long lost relations at last. See the photos of my Great Grandparent's at the top of the page, well Google did it again! My Mum's cousin found my You Tube video and sent me a message. We have been trying to figure out where the old photographs were for years as sadly Nan's ones got destroyed by accident. Old photographs have to be treasured so now they can be shared with all our family.


And while you are waiting sing along with Snowflakes Google song. Her friend is in the Olympic Games advert too. Funny how people, places and things just all fit together like a Jigsaw puzzle. See sometimes you have to experience bad times to grow.

Trash Pack Olympic games for children

To celebrate the Olympic Games in the UK why not try and play along using the Trash Pack toys. Below you can click on the image with all the flags. What you need to do is cut the flags out, stick them to lolly sticks and place them in your medium Trash Packs with the lid wide open. When you place your lid on the big trash can and pop the lid, trashie will fly through the air and hopefully land in the Country of your choice.

Here are Snowflakes Fresh Pack toy creations. Don't you think they go brilliantly with the Trash Packs. I can just imagine two fantastic games. One you play with the Trash Pack and Fresh Pack toys and one is a computer game.  I wonder what the Trash Pack creators will think as they are always open to suggestions.

See our other blogs for how to fly Trashie through the air. Will be back soon with the Trash Pack Olympics so you can play along. Of course you can make your own little flags if you prefer. I have done this for quickness.

Back soon to see little Trashie fly. I wonder which Country will win and which Counties will work as a team to win?

Trash Pack v Fresh Pack teamwork Snowflake child artist

Here are my little girls amazing Fresh Pack characters. First she drew the little characters with black pen for me to learn some Welsh. We then coloured them in Photoshop. Then I went about making each individual little character based on her original designs. They are awesome. The characters were created well before we knew about the Trash Pack. Once Trash Pack came out we thought hey this would be fantastic for a game Trash Pack v Fresh Pack. Trash Pack are the bad characters that live in the trash cans and we are the good ones that live in the fridge and houses.

It is funny how bad luck steers you in a different direction. My fairies have stood still for a while and I have been concentrating more on my little girls creations. Well she is the real talent. Just got a friends request from Rolf Harris who we adore. We always joke that Snowflake draws fast just like Rolf Harris. You can see what I mean in the video below.

I am working on a little game called the Trash Pack Olympics. So stay tuned. Funny thing is two days ago I was searching to see if any lost family had found my blogs about our Great Grandad. And there before me was Madison from our family tree. She will hopefully be coming over to London for the Paralympics. How proud are we as a family. Nan's strength must run in the family on her fathers side. Good luck Madi lets see you fly!

Check our other posts for Trash Pack games. And remember you saw it first here with Snowflake putting little Trashie on the lid and popping the trash can so he flies through the air. We also created the little house game. And now for the Olympic Trash Pack which will hopefully make people be a little more kinder to each other as every child deserves a break in life no matter what Country they are from.

Be kind to others! And Snowflake well done for being honest and handing in the wallet you found on the streets yesterday to the bank. I hope the person really appreciates your honesty like I do sweetie. Seriously well done!

Trash Pack game video Trash Pack Explosion

Clever Snowflake has done it again. She was just playing with her Trash Pack Toys and one day she decided to put her little Trashie on the lid of the Trash Can and popped the lid and he flew through the air. We have now made up a fab game for all the family. Even Mummy loves the Trash Pack game!

Here is the original advert for the Trash Packs. As you can see their is no lid popping with flying Trashies. But hey they have sold like mad anyway from just the advert on TV and children's word of mouth. Tell you what guys Children are great little marketing magnets! They are great toys that get children to play the way they used to the old fashioned way. We love them, great fun for all the family. Totally unique!

Watch Snowflake and Marcus play Trash Pack Explosion:


Important! To fly your little Trashie through the air you are going to need the big Trash Pack Can. See the photograph above. That shows you three different sizes. The big one is sold with 6-7 little Trashies inside. That is the one that give your Trashie speed to fly.

If you don't have a dolls house just use some old boxes or create something with toys. Cars anything will do.

1. Place all your Trash Packs in the dolls (if you have one) leave some with lids open

2. Now here is where the fun begins. Place little Trashie on the big green trash can bin and pop the lid. Make sure your face is away from the lid so it does not hit you. Also you need to point the Trash Pack Can backwards so the lid makes it fly towards the dolls house and not the other way.

3. See how many trash cans you can knock over. 10 points each one.

4. See how many middle size trash cans you can land in. 20 points per trash can your trashie lands in.

5. You get points for landing in different rooms. Make up as you go along.

Of course the one with the most points wins the Trash Pack Explosion game, so keep score.

Hopefully we will be able to do something with the schools and run some UK Trash Pack competitions as they could raise money for our schools and get Snowflake out of the black damp house and into the light.
