III - Put this wheelbarrow in the caravan. The wheelbarrow must stay in the caravan for the rest of the task. IV - Put 20 things all bigger than a tennis ball in the wheelbarrow. V - Roll the bowling ball from behind the rope at the top of the drive, so it knocks over at least one of the skittles in front of the front door. VI - Build a tower of bricks on this red circle.
