Now you take the two sides and you bring them in together. Like this. So now it should look like this. You bring the edges. Up to the top. And do the same in the other side.
Now it's a diamond shape. Now you take the sides and you fold them into the center. I'm doing the same the other side. So it should look like this. On one hand there are some for. You inserted in the side that you just folded in. And do the same on the other side. So now it should look like this. Then you just hold the bottoms so when you blow it up.

I try to to try to. Bear off to watch. Charles River sometimes tricky because of tall buildings. What happens is the wind hits the building and it affects the wind.
Lot of traffic on the Charles sometimes like the highways in Boston. I like salad as a racing is really great competition. For two racing like one because you really have to use a little windy air to its best advantage. I wish more kids would tell because it's really a great thing to do and it's a lot of fun.

It took about a month for them to develop. Finally they hatched and one girl salamander started to play tag with a boy who knew the salamanders name was Sally. She really liked him.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
