Pets like to sleep in odd places sometimes. Our cats mostly prefer a bed, a sofa or a comfy cushion, but sometimes they are to be found in a cardboard box; in a washing up bowl; and one of our cats has been known to sneak into the car for a quick nap. The film The Secret Life of Pets explores this idea of what pets get up to and takes it a little further to look at what adventures animals have when their owners aren’t around (or are simply asleep in bed). Have you seen it yet? It’s now out on DVD.
Energizer® has teamed up with The Secret Life of Pets. They have special promo packs from major participating retailers which give you a chance to win a plush toy from the film. We responded to the challenge Energizer® set us to create a special sleeping place for one of H’s favourite soft toys that reveals their imaginative secret life. In his case it’s Duke from The Secret Life of Pets, who we imagined would get up to all sorts of space related adventures.
Energizer® sent us an enormous pack of goodies which really sparked our imagination. H had some great ideas and we set to work creating our very own pet-size space rocket. It was a big project in more ways that one.
H and Duke seemed to like the finished space vehicle. Duke even had his own little light inside the rocket (lit up by Energizer® batteries of course), just in case he was scared of the dark. I think H and Duke are ready to set off for their own big space adventure. If you fancy getting a bit crafty during the school Christmas holidays there are free SLOP activity sheets available to download from the Energizer website, which can be found here. We liked spotting the pets from the close-ups.
