What colour are the fire fighter’s hats? Where do they keep their hats? - Make some chef’s hats from white crepe paper and cardboard. Invite your friends over for a cooking afternoon. - Find a box and put some hats in it. Choose a hat from the box and mime what activity a person wearing the hat would do. Another person has to guess what activity you are doing.SONGSSinging a Cowboy Song Composers: Margaret Dennison & Margaret Fletcher Publisher: EMI Allans Music Australia Pty LtdI am the King Composer: Ronald Gamack Publisher: ControlWhat Shall We Do?

Lightly beat egg and pour into the well. Gradually add the milk into the well, slowly incorporating the flour and whisking until smooth. Lightly grease a non-stick frying pan with butter. Spoon tablespoons of the pikelet mixture into the pan. How large you make your pikelets is up to you! When bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pikelets, flip them with a spatula. Cook until golden brown on both sides. You might like to serve your pikelets with butter, jam, honey or maple syrup. Enjoy!How to Make Box PuzzlesYou will need: - 9 recycled cardboard boxes, all of a similar size (3 per puzzle person) - Paints, textas, crayonsPick three different people you would like to turn into puzzles! Think of people who wear interesting hats and clothes. We drew a cowgirl wearing cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, a chef wearing a crisp white uniform and a chef’s hat and a king wearing royal robes and a crown. Other ideas are: a fireman, a scuba diver, a pirate or an astronaut. Draw or paint each person over three cardboard boxes: the head and hat of each person on one box, the torso on another and the legs and feet on another. Pile the boxes one on top of the other to make the complete body of each puzzle person. Then, knock all the boxes down and mix them up! Try making funny combinations – you could put the king’s head on the chef’s body or the cowgirl’s feet underneath the king’s head and body. Once you’ve had fun making lots of combinations, try and put your box people back together again.
