It is quite common in early art classes to have pupils take an every day object and turn it into something else. So I thought, "what's good for them is good for us".
Here is a pair of scissors - what will you make with them? I've made it easier this week by putting them on transparency so you don't even need to cut them out.

Closed scissors - nice idea Rista
Those will work better than these:
Haha - they would be difficult to use wouldn't they 🙂
Great job with the animation Trevor 🙂
You may have heard Australian wildlife can be quite dangerous.
its a good thing the white ones are smaller 😉
Although it appears calm now, the word on the street is that the rumble is about to begin.
Very clever Jane. Shall we use that game to decide tomorrows starter image?
Great idea, Dave. Shall we select a time and then post our responses simultaneously? 😊
Very good! But, shouldn't "paper covers rock"?
Rafael, that will come later. There is going to be a terrible spat — they'll wallow this way and tumble that, in the awfullest way you ever saw!

Has anyone ever pointed out that the scissors have an unfair advantage (although the rock is certain to enjoy its ultimate win once the present pandemic is over)?
