2. Choose an activity (or two!) to extend learning:

- TALK about love.
If Z asked you what love is, what would you say? Draw a picture of something you love, to help Z understand.

- MAKE a robot.
Using materials you’ve found around your house – like empty boxes and containers, old magazines, discarded toys, bottle caps, etc – make a robot friend!

See below for two creative examples:

First, make a paper hat, like Z’s, to wear on your adventure.
