Problem– The children arrived at a tropical island and searched for the crayons. They found all of the crayons and filled the belt.
The children drew a helicopter and travelled to the monument to transfer the crayons.
-The guards arrived and attempted to take the crayons.
ResolutionThe purple bird grabbed the crayons and flew away with them.
-The crayons released rainbow drops, which startled the guards and caused them to fall into the freeing cold sea.
-The kingdom was free again and everyone rejoiced.
EndingThe King crowned the children and thanked them for their help.
The children returned home through the door.
