Here is one more interesting short video presented by Rocío, Marta and María.
This short film is about a lonely boy who starts communicating with a cute girl in opposite building using written signs and eventually they met each other.

During next week, take a box and throw in anything that can be useful: paper scraps, fabric scraps, food packaging, envelopes, calendars, old Christmas cards, advertisement leaflets, magazines, newspapers and so on. Be creative!
What to use for the card part of the card:
