Jack and the Flumflum Tree

This week Mrs Perry, from the office, arrived at our door with a patchwork bag. Intrigued, we looked inside and found a random set of objects: Red and blue balloons, tent pegs, a porridge bowl, a tom-tom drum, 2 wooden spoons, a skipping rope and 3 spotted handkerchiefs.
We spent a long time thinking about why these things were in the bag and who it belonged to. We didn't even get close!
