Room On The Broom - Losing The Bow - Ep3 - YouTube

The witches hat is suddenly blown off by the howling wind. Can you experiment with making her a windproof hat that won't blow off in the storm? Think about the design of the hat and the materials that you can use to make it. Remember to test if it works!

A Truly Magnificent Broom

Can you design the witch a new broomstick to replace her broken one? Draw a picture of your design and then label the materials you could use to make it. 

Maybe you can actually make the witch her new broomstick and bring it into school to show your friends?

Spaghetti broomstick 

Get messy with some spaghetti and paint. Make a broomstick using dried spaghetti and get an adult to help you cook it. One it's cooked let it cool and then dip it in your favourite paint to create a masterpiece of your choice.
