Far far Away book: Bindle

Book: Far Far Away

When an unhappy piglet decides to run away from home, his cool-headed and calm mother helps him to see that everything he needs and wants is right there at home. He finally chooses not to go, after all he has everything he needs right @ home.


We were inspired by the cover page of the book and we upcycled a flashlight to Trike Headlamp. We also made a Bindle and CJ pretended to be the piglet with the pretend pig nose.

Make a Bindle using a Bandanna and a Twig.

To make the Bindle all you need is Kerchief Or Bandanna, Sturdy Twig or Dowel stick, Snacks

Place the snacks/light,tiny stuffs in the center of the kerchief or Bandanna. Make sure that you have enough space to tie knots of the opposite corners

Bring the two opposite corners of the kerchief/Bandanna and tie a knot as shown

Bring the other two corners and tie a knot

Place the sturdy twig/Dowel stick as shown below

Tie a knot with the stick inside

Bindle ready!

Wanderer all set to go!
