Challenge One is a space theme but that doesn’t mean children will design something space related!  Here are a few things that children have created so far

  • Genevieve focused on communications and felt that Pip would need to speak to his friends.  She made a very snazzy, loud speaker so that Pip could shout into space.  Her brother Henry made a three headed dog to keep Pip company.
  • Jude knew that life on a planet would be boring and so created Pip a very cool ball game out of newspaper complete with scoring board.  Big sister Eve and her mum made a full size den for Pip to shelter in, including shelves, a fire and a seat.  Eve also created a very life like set of ear phones for Pip that linked to his own Iphone so that he could listen to music.
  • Riley was quick of the mark and knowing that Pip needed cheering up instantly made him a bottle of cherry squash followed by a jet pack and a hot dog.  Little sister Ella made sure Pip was comfortable with a long scarf.
  • Bjarni put his inventing skills to the test and designed a working water well and a box that harnessed the power of lightening.  Once Pip had water and electricity more inventions followed and a flat screen, wall mounted TV was quickly installed complete with remote!
  • George, Felix and mum created Blooby, a very cute robot friend for Pip.  I have to say Blooby might be the most lovely robot I have ever met.

No idea is too crazy and nothing is off limits…..rocket ships, chairs, houses, pet dragons or a whole new language; Pip loves all your inventions.
