The Challenge

O.k. now some of you may already be fed up with hearing about the world cup, some of you may not care about it and some of you may not even know anything about it. However as one of the hosts who does love the World Cup I thought lets have some challenges reflecting on the World Cup. So sitting racking my brain thinking how can I tie this into the world cup. So lets see anything world cup related, examples:

Anything round to reflect the ball, anything green to reflect the pitch, cobwebs reflecting the nets. An animal from the country of the hosts or other participating country or maybe the national flower, bird, mammal, tree etc of that country, you get my drift. Please be creative, lets see some cracking work peoples.

Remember it has to tie in with the theme or it will be removed.
