Remember those loopy moments on vintage ACME cartoons. Here’s an attempt to create a snapshot of such a moment. Of course it need not be a shark…it could be a lil chicks going round a hen, rabbits going round a huge turnip…you get the idea.
What you need are:
- colour paper (for water, float, shark)
- cardboard (for human figure)
- ice cream stick
- brass fastener
- sticky tape
- hole puncher
- Prepare the following items…draw and cut out the figure+ float, shark on paper+cardboard.
- Spirals work really well if you need crate a sense of movement.
- Make a small incision on the centre of the lid.
- Stick on the water spiral and bits of the shark onto the lid. Sticky tape is probably the best way to have them stuck on.
- At the bottom of the human figure, punch a hole so that you can insert the ends of the brass fastener through later.
- Clamp one end of the ice cream stick with the brass fastener and insert the ends of the fastener through the incision made on the lid.
- Fasten the human figure to the lid. It should be taut and stay in place when the lid is turned.
- Now hold the toy by the ice cream stick and simply turn to watch the swimmer becomes sharkbait! 🙂
