Other activities

(I’d love to see what you do BUT you don’t need to send a photo if it’s too much to do or if your parent is really busy with their work.)


  • Zip wire for a toy

Build a functioning zipwire for a teddy or toy figure. Consider: how will you anchor your zipwire at top and bottom? How steep will it be and how will this affect the speed of descent? How will you attach your teddy to the wire, and ensure smooth descent? How will you slow stop the descent of your teddy? If you are near a window please take extra care by making sure you have an adult with you.
