Exactly! I had some left over resin so I found some containers for molds and tried to poor a yoyo, no lathing. The first half went well. I made a jig to align and support everything but I either bumped it while it was setting or I didn’t get things aligned as well as I thought.
Ouch! sorry to hear that. I’m envisioning you sitting quietly, watching television, yoyo in hand, string on finger, tear on your cheek. Get better!
Ideas can be anything. For example, hit a trapeze 10 times with your eyes closed, share yoyoing with 3 people, create a piece of art that’s yoyo related, work on that trick you gave up on, try turning a yoyo, try using a glove for a day. It can be absolutely anything.
Is this an hour of focused, goal oriented time, an our of relaxed play, or a mixture?
I wouldn’t recommend an hour of play since your mum thinks you yoyo to much. Maybe try to get your mum to join you or try, even if it’s only for a throw or two. Even ask if you can get a pic of her and you yoyoing together. It might be a fun goal and besides you would get to spend some time with her.
