After booming and zapping is when I emerge, to bring you bright dazzling beauty when I diverge. Some say that I hide enormous wealth, but those riches have always proven stealth. What am I?

I have wings, I am able to fly, I‘m not a bird yet I soar high in the sky. What am I?

Monster Planters

Follow the simple instructions below to make your very own Monster Planter.

How to Make

  1. Remove the label from an old tin. Wash clean with washing up liquid and warm water and wipe dry with a kitchen towel or tissue.
  2. Choose any colour(s) of your choice of deco acrylic paint and decorate the tin to create the body of the monster. You can paint the whole tin a solid colour or you can decorate with spots or patterns. Leave to dry.
  3. Stick a coloured wiggle eye onto a sheet of white foam. Draw a circle around the wiggle eye slightly bigger than the size of the wiggle eye. Cut the circle out to make a big monster eye. If you want your monster can planter to have more than one eye repeat this step until you have the desired amount of eyes.
  4. Attach the eye(s) to the tin using a glue gun or craft glue dots.
  5. Cut out two small rectangles from coloured foam to create antennae. Stick two glitter pom poms on top of the rectangles using glue dots.
  6. Attach the antennae to the top of the can using glue dots. You could also make some ears or spiky hair out of coloured foam too.
  7. Have a look through the selection of mouth stickers provided. Choose a funny mouth that will stand out well on your monster can and stick onto the tin.
  8. Place a small plant into the tin.

Can you crack the code?

How far?

So hey, now that you know how many ants you would need to carry your body weight, can you figure out how long it would take them to get you to The Eiffel Tower?

Here is some information to help you:

  • -The Eiffel Towers post code is, Paris 75001-75116

The Ant Challenge

Here is an ant…

Ants are amazing and can carry 10 – 50 times their body weight! they can also weigh on average, between 1 and 5 milligrams.

Lets say this little fellow above can carry 30 times his body weight and he weighs 3 milligrams.

Your challenge is to figure out how many ants it would take to carry you? if you want to send us your findings we can begin to publish the information on the website.

Good luck!
