  6. Name: Lucky pot
    I have made a pot that comes with soild and a packet of mystery seeds. Each packet of seeds has different variets so you never know what your goign to grow. You plant it in a rainbow pot and look after it.
    My item is special because you will never know what you will grow in the magic pot.
    I am making it for children because we like suprises and it also shows how fun gardening can be.
    The pot alone would cost 99p and the entire set that comes with the soil and seeds will cost £1.99.

  9. Name of my product is
    Super fun rainbow badge.

    What is the product ?
    My product is a Rainbow badge.

    What makes my product special?
    It’s special because you can wear with anything and it will brighten up your day and anybody else who can see it too, they’re colourful to put a smile on your face, and each badge has a reminders of the corona rules.

    Who would buy your product?
    My badges are for everyone adults and kids, because everyone needs to smile and be cheerful.

    I think my item will sell for £1.50 each I think it is a fare price, because I know each badge didn’t cost lots to make.

    The idea I came up with came from my favourite jacket that doesn’t fit my any more it had lots of different colourful badges on it, it alway made me happy wearing lots of badges so I wanted to make some for other people.

  10. The materials I will use
    Metal clips

    I will use them for sticking things together.
    To make a colourful design for badges and to cut out the shape of each badge.

    Yes will need to join the safety pins to the badge, I think first I will try tape, if that doesn’t work my mum will help use the glue gun.

    My mum will send photo of our badges.

    • Wow Maryam. I can see you have thought about this. I’m sure it will be fantastic. I can’t wait to see your photo!

    2.don’t know what a sale pitch is
    3.did it

      • No problem Hudayifah. Take a look at the video. Your sales pitch is how you would persuade me to buy your product. If I was thinking I might give you some money to help you make it, what would you say to me to persuade me that I would be doing the right thing?

        If I was making a sales pitch for a rainbow coloured cup that I had made, I would say something like below.

        Please look at this cup. It is plastic so it doesn’t break, colourful , cheap and easy to make. People will love it. It will be the next craze. A must have for all children! Do you see my famous logo in the corner? That will help my cup to sell because everyone just loves this logo. It is nearly as famous as Nike! We make 50p profit on each cup. I know that will persuade you to invest. Just think if we sell 100 cups, we will have £50 all to ourselves to buy what we want.

    • Hello Aarav. Super work. Remind me, what are you making? Please send a photo it to our upload. Can’t wait to hear your sales pitch!

    • Thank you Hanfaa. I am so impressed at your design that is well thought out. I love your finished product which is displayed on the gallery. It is unique – what does this mean?

  14. I am going to use paint because gold paint is like gold.
    Iam going to cut them , stick them, color them, make it 3D.
    I am going to join them by tape and glue.

  15. What materials are you going to use?
    Loom bands and 1 clip.
    How are you going to use them?
    I will used them to loop them into each other with my fingers and attach the two ends together with the clip.
    Do you need to join some of the materials? How are you going to do this?
    I will join the materials with my fingers. First I’m going to place 1 loom band into my index finger and middle finger and then carry on until it is the size of my wrist.

  16. Materials:
    1- Waxed knotting braided nylon black string.
    2- Rubber black necklace strap cord string.
    3- Colorful loose round letters.

    Because those materials are ( Rainbow color), waterproof, durable, environmentally friendly ( made of plastic which can be recycled), flexible and useful.
    For making a Bracelet:
    First, we cut 6 black nylon strings and braided them together.
    second,flat the letters smooth on the ground to make ( name, word..).
    Third, insert the letters inside the braided string and then make a knot at the end, so the letters won’t get out.
    For making a Necklace:
    First,bring the black rubber strap then remove the small metal at the end.
    Second, shape the letters to make a word or a name.
    Third,put the letters inside the rubber necklace.
    finally,fasten the metal piece at the end so the letters will not fall out.
    I scored 95% on Education city.

  17. Sales pitch:
    I am selling “appreciation t shirt”.
    I have made a white t shirt with a rainbow on it to support the NHS during the covid 19 pandemic. I made this product to inspire everybody who is working hard during these times. The t shirt has rainbow colours which will make everyone happy who might be feeling a b it sad and they can see how happy we are to have them working to help others.
    I want to make this t shirt in all sizes from babies to adults. this way I can sell more to make more profit.
    I will be selling my t shirt for £7.
    I made this product because it will look nice and the rainbow is trending a lot at the moment so it would be really popular.

    I could be asked, why are you charging £7, why is your t shirt better then the all others on the market.

  18. Challenge 1: Materials needed; plain white t shirt, felt tips or paint, pencil. The t shirts are already stitched so I did not have to do any cutting or gluing. I used a pencil to draw the rainbow stencil on my t shirt to make sure the rainbow looks equal. I used felt tip pens to colour my t shirt instead of paint. I think the felt tip pends looked different.
    I made the t shirt and already sent the picture.
    Challenge: my mum will send the work on email.
    Challenge 3: completed 100%
