Hammer made out of sponge and straws!

Keshav: It's too soft.
Eiji: It is not strong.
Then we wondered what should we use to hammer the nails?
Amanda: A heavy rock.
Charlie: Rock should not be heavy, we cannot lift it then.
Esther: Harder hammer.
Then we got to see the real hammer. We observed that it was made of
Reyansh: Handle made of tree.
We then had a go at hammering the nails.
We looked at words to describe the words: man, apple and kitchen.
We ended up laughing so much with all the silly sentences we could make.
