Making your own Guy used to be an essential part of Bonfire Night, and children used to wheel their efforts around town in an old pram or pushchair, or even a supermarket trolley. They would ask for a "penny" with which to buy sweets or sparklers. The Guy was then often thrown onto the bonfire in the evening! Even though these traditions have long died out, you can still have fun making your own "Guy" for Bonfire Night!
