Let's make a magic carpet

Suitable for:0 to 5

Let's make your own magic carpet.

To start, lay your magic carpet on the floor.

Your carpet could be a rug, bedsheet, blanket, tin foil or something else you can find around the house.

And then...

Go on your magic carpet whenever you like, it's your space. 

You can imagine it flying anywhere you like!

Here are some examples of my magic carpet, made from tin foil, paper and string.
