And I'm Possum!
My fingers were stuck together,
I couldn't say hello properly.
Now they're nice and clean.
I'm making some glue – it's very, very sticky.
I'm making this glue because I want to make a paper ball to stick the paper together.
I'm sure Possum would love to help make this ball.
I wonder if he's awake?
I'll go and see.
Come on let's have a look.
Where is Possum?
Sally … my door was so hard to open,
I don't know why.
Was it stuck, Possum?
Sally, what does stuck mean?
It's like your door was so hard to open, it was sticking.
Like this morning when I was making glue, my fingers were sticking together.
I couldn't open them, because they were all sticky.
That was because of the sticky glue.
Did you get glue on your door, Possum?
Ah ha, I remember.
Last night I got into my comfy bed, I got a jar of honey and I was eating it and I got it all over me and all over the tree house. Mm mm.
Possum, did you have a jar of honey and didn't give me any?
You know I love sticky, sticky honey.
Oh well, never mind.
Inside I was making a paper ball, do you want to come and help me?
Yeah, I'll help, but , how do you make the paper ball stick together?
The glue that I was making was very sticky.
So I dip the paper in the glue, and used that to make the ball.
I'll help yeah.
Well come on then.
What is it?
I have an idea.
Why don't we pretend that our feet are really sticky and that the grass is all sticky, all the way back to the kitchen?
Oh yeah, come on. Copy us kids!
Well Sally, I'm ready to make the glue, how do we make it?
Well, to make our sticky, sticky glue, we need four things.
We need flour.
We need water.
There it is.
We need a bowl.
And we need a spoon.
No, that's too small! We need a bigger spoon.
Oh, ah ha!
Yes, that's right.
We have our four things – that means we can start making our glue.
We need one cup of flour, in the bowl.
And now we need a cup of water.
Look Possum, you can see there the flour is sitting on the bottom and the water is on the top.
We need to use our spoon to mix it all together and make it nice and sticky.
Can you do that please?
While you're doing that, I'm going to tear up some strips of paper.
Possum, are you stuck?
He he he he he!
You're playing tricks on me.
Oh, that glue looks ready, Possum.
Now, we need to blow up a balloon.
Ok, that's enough.
Now, place it in the bowl, and what we do is we get our paper, we dip it in the glue and then we stick it on the balloon.
That's looking good.
Why don't we watch some children making papier-mâché balloons?
Yeah, let's watch!
Oh wow, those children make great papier-mâché balloons!
Yes, they were beautiful weren't they, Possum?
Yours is beautiful, too, though.
We should paint ours as well, but it's still wet.
Why don't we go outside and hang it up so it can dry.
Yeah, good idea, come on let's go!
Possum, your ball looks great.
It's not sticky anymore, it's nice and dry, and when it's painted it'll look beautiful.
Hey Sally! Have a look at my door, it's not sticky anymore.
I've cleaned it.
Yes, I saw you mopping and now all the honey's gone.
Sally, I do love eating honey and playing with sticky, sticky things.
Yes, I know you do Possum and I have something else that's sticky for you; just wait.
Sally, what does it say?
It says "don't get honey on the door!"
Oh, ha ha ha ha!
Oh Sally, you're funny.
Well, our time is up.
Oh, thanks for watching.
See you next time.
