The Flying Squid Challenge #8

Make a remote control by cutting a large piece of cardboard or paper, and drawing a few ‘buttons’ or icons on it. Each button does  different things, for example:

“Up Arrow”- for jump
“Cat” –  for acting like a cat

Add as many buttons as you want, don’t forget to add an “OFF” and “ON” button! 

First, the parent squid presses the ON button, and their squid(s) will “turn on”. When the parents press additional buttons, their squids will pretend to be doing whatever this magic remote is asking them to do: be a robot, run, sleep, maybe clean up their rooms?  (Wink, wink… )

However, don’t get too comfortable because soon it will be your squids’ turn to use the magic remote control!

Here are some interesting suggestions for useful buttons:

Humanoid Robot
Cleaning Robot (one of those cute round robots that drag along the floor)
 _______ Player  (fill the blank with your favourite sports’ star)
Opera singer
Washing the dishes

And of course, every remote control must have this button:


The Flying Squid made crafty Remote Control to play children's activities

Chopito, the Flying Squid, made a remote control with fantastic features. Our favorite button is the “grape” button.

Paytime with the Flying Squid. He is pretending to be a cat catching a mouse while

Naru, the kitty, is playing with some yarn. Chopitón, the largest cat in town, is catching a tasty mouse.

Don’t forget to share pictures of your children’s activities with your loved ones. Please tag them: #TheFlyingSquidChallenge. We’d love to see them too. Remember, sharing this challenge with other parents in your network will give you bonus points!
