Playing catch up. It’s nearing the start of the academic year, and we’re feeling it here. So expect a couple of posts today to make up for our lack of posts.
We’ve gone with a candy crush theme today- the advertisement always pops up when we’re putting together our photos, so we finally gave in. (We’re glad we did though!) This door dec idea could be great for a quad or apartment style setting with multiple residents.
What you’ll need:
You’ll want to additionally have a pair of scissors, glue, a sharpie and a circular lid to trace around.
2. Place the seven circles into three rows of 2, 3, 2.
3. Glue the circles together.
4. Using a circular lid, cut out a large circle from brown paper.
5. Lay the colorful gemstones out into place.
6. Glue the gemstones into place.
7. The other shapes that are used in the candy crush game are pretty easy to replicate without a template or directions. Once you’ve created the shapes you like, write the names onto them and place them onto each door. This could be a great theme to use if you have a suite or apartment style setting, but it can still be used for traditional double rooms.
- Recreate the Candy Crush map, with each level being a different major event that is happening on campus. Consider events such as homecoming, midterms, or other large campus traditions.
- Create the chocolate, black licorice and gray blocks (PS: does anyone know what the gray blocks are supposed to be? Can’t seem to figure that one out!) Place them throughout your hallway.
- Have a craft session! Make a candy crush tote bag that you can make out of an old t-shirt.
- Be Sweet Week: Come up with a list of about 100 Random Acts of Kindness that are simple to do. Encourage your community to work together to complete them within a week. Reward them with a sweet treat should they complete the challenge.
- Fans of Candy Crush will appreciate that there are other apps out there that can help them be more productive and efficient students. Host a program that allows your residents to leave with tips beyond just apps on how to ace their classes.
