Pigeon Problems

Toss it

Toss-itIf you’re ever wondering how people come up with games spare us some thought. This game came about because one day students didn’t remove their rubbish, so to help them with the concept of cleaning up after themselves we placed a bin at the end of the studio and asked if they could get their rubbish in it… it turned in to a competition that we all joined in and now the studio is lovely an clean. It led to Toss-it which you can play by clicking here. The game will open in a new window.
