Targetty Thing
.pub Microsoft Publisher 446kb The workbook for The Targetty Thing.   I've left the rules in place from my last session, but have removed all the photos and names.   Where there is a camera on a grey box, you need to add a photo in the same size as the grey box.   Delete the box and camera before adding each photo.
Targetty Thing
.pub Microsoft Publisher 560kb The puppets for The Targetty Thing.   You'll need to copy the photos from your workbook onto the second page, I've left mine in place so you can see roughly what size to make them.   Print the puppets, cut them out, laminate them, cut the laminate to size then add sticks to the back with sellotape.   Add a dot of velcro to the face.   Then cut the heads out and laminate them, trim the laminate and add velcro.   The final page is the 'rules' for the board, these need to match what you have in the workbook.
