As usual I did some character creation with the kids of each group. This is what they came up with.

First up we have GELMAN the dog with rockets for legs, T-Rex arms, a jelly body and a pigs tail. He lives in a rubbish bin inside of a giant mutated dogs stomach.

 
Next we have NOG the pig. He has robot arms, octopus legs, a chickens body and some dragon wings. He lives in a giant log in the land of mushrooms.

 

Last but not least we have BOB. He is a shark with an apple core for a body, human legs, sticky taped on skeleton arms and a lolly pop tail. He lives in a giant dog on Mars.

 

Thanks to all the kids and teachers at Pulteney Grammar for such a cool day.
