So loyal fans will be wondering, “Where on earth was this for the last month?” Well…
This week’s animal is a weird one (I know it’s unusual to have weirdness here but please try stay calm)
The animal today is the Toucan
The Toucan has a proper long nose, it’s ridiculous, I’m not talking like anteater ridiculous though, but the nose to body ratio is OFF THE CHARTS. Their noses are a 2 for 1 deal, because they double up as the Toucan’s gob, which is pretty handy. Imagine if your nose was also your mouth, we’d spend less dosh on lipstick for a start.
So called ‘Science people’ reckon they’re called beaks, but I’m not one to trust some geezer who wears a coat indoors.
But the real fascinating thing about Toucan it’s not the beak, but like it’s actual body.
HOT DAMN, IT’S TWO CANS. CAN YA BELIEVE IT? Yes! Just as the name suggest, it’s two cans. Soup, beans, tuna, heck even Spam, Toucans are truly a scientific miracle.
Ok, we’re going to mix things up a bit this week. I’m gonna show you how to make your very own TOUCAN. Remember to get an adult to help, it can get pretty hardcore
Tin Cans x 2
An icecream cone
Remove labels from cans, you don’t want a lawsuit on your hands! However, if you do happen to be the CEO of the nation’s most popular baked beans and condiments brand and fancy leaving the labels on your cans, I’m not going to stop you.
Tape the two cans together, use about 4ft of the tape, just to be sure it’s secure. The last thing you want at the stage is loose can, I cannot stress how important this is.
Take the ice cream cone, this will be the beak. I’d strongly advise a cone that hasn’t had ice cream in it, as this could compromise the structural integrity of the cone with soggyness.
Tape that bugger on.
Whack a couple eyes on that bad boy, for authenticity.
And there you have it! Your very own Toucan!
If you fancy making one, please email me a photo so I can have a right good giggle, the best one will win bragging rights.
