Create your own Gadgets

This week you have created your own spy! Today we want you to focus on creating gadgets for your spy to help them on any missions. Alex was given a Nintendo DS, Zit Cream and a special yoyo. What will your spy have? Maybe it will be a fidget spinner with a hidden ability, a pair of glasses with a built-in device or it could even be a lipstick with special alterations?  Be creative and think about what your spy would carry with them.

Draw diagrams and explain the special features of your gadgets. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! 

Anthony Horowitz is constantly asked about the gadgets he has created for Alex. Click here to read about all of them and get inspired!
