Key-chain

Key-chain 


 This key-chain was made by my cousins. They gave it to me 5 years ago when I left India. At that time I was 6 years old.

 The key-chain is made out of pink beads, white and green thread and a piece of wood which is shaped like circle. They made the key-chain look like a girl. Red and black markers were used to draw the face.

 The pink beads were used as the hands. The white thread was used for the arms and shirt. The green thread was used for the legs/pants. The piece of wood was used for the head.

 My cousins gave the key-chain to me as a memory so I can always remember them. I felt very delighted when I got the key-chain. Whenever I look at it I think of my lovely cousins!

Possum Trap-Sandhya & Rachita




The leaves are poisoned and they attract the possum.
You slowly pull the string up and let the possum in.
Once the possum is in, you release the string and the box will trap the possum.
The possum will eat the poisoned leaves and then it will die.

What is cute and cuddly? Cats are cute and cuddly! Cats need lots of love! There are lots of types of cats but they all are adorable! Did you know cats cannot sustain their lives without eating meat?


There are so many types of cats. There are: Siamese Cats, Persian Cats, Ragdolls, Bengal Cats, Sphynx Cats and more! The International Progressive Cat Breeders Alliance says there are 73 cat breeds but the International Cat Association says there are 58 cat breeds. Either way, that’s a lot of cat breeds!


Cats mostly eat meat. Although they also eat cat food and they drink milk. Cats are carnivores. They eat meat like cooked beef, chicken or turkey.


Cats are lazy and they sleep most of the time. Adult cats sleep 16-20 hours a day and newborn cats sleep 24/7. Although, when cats are awake, they are very playful! Cats are nocturnal creatures. Another fact about cats, is that they meow a lot to get your attention!     


Cats are lazy but at the same time they are also playful.Although some people don’t like cats, others do! Overall cats are adorable house pets!
