Have you ever wondered why your things don’t start moving around by themselves? They’re just a little lazy sometimes, so you need to give them a nudge.

Join in our adventure with Mr Lazy. We’re building our very own Rube Goldberg Machine, a DIY ice skating rink, helping Spiderman and Hulk save the day AND making a crab rock & roll! It’s so much fun – all you need to do is give Mr Lazy a Nudge.

ACTIVITIES COMING YOUR WAY

Play 1: The Flying Fox

Have you seen the awesome Rube Goldberg machines that use chain reactions to get things done? We’re not making coffee or letting balloons go this time. We’re making our own Flying Fox!

Once you get a hang of that, you can make even cooler machines with stuff you can find at home.

Stuff you need from home:
Scissors, a roll of tape and a high stool or door knob.
