Create your own animal!
Spend 5-10 mins listing or drawing all the animals you can think of. Review your list. Take a blank piece of paper and fold into three, so you have space for a head, body and tail. Now choose three animals to make your own, new creature (example picture on the left). Give your animal a name.
The Day the Crayons Quit - Art
Create a picture that uses all of the colours in the book… just like Duncan did. You may want to use crayons, coloured pencils, or felts.

Head to https://scratch.mit.edu/ideas to learn about coding. Make your robot work by writing code! Download the Scratch Junior app to do further coding. After that, you might like to make a robot remote (see picture on the right).
Get some paper plates (or cut large circles from cereal or other old boxes at home), find some sticks, and a balloon or soft ball and you're away...paper plate tennis!
