An easy, cute, little whale DIY to keep you or your children busy.
What you will need:
- Cardboard egg carton
- Blue acrylic paint
- Blue pipe cleaners
- Blue craft paper
- Googly eyes
- Black marker pen
- PVA glue
Step 1: Start off by cutting out singular pieces from the egg carton, however many you would like to make. You may wish to even out these pieces if they are uneven from being cut out.
Step 2: Then paint these pieces blue and leave to dry, remember to put down newspaper or regular paper on wherever you're painting so you don't get paint everywhere! (While you're waiting for this to dry you can cut out the tail and fins seen in step 5)
Step 3: With your scissors, cut an x into the top of the egg carton shell. Then collect your pipe cleaner/s, cut them in half and then fold those pieces in half.
Step 4: Get these folded pipe cleaners and twist them together on the bottom and then stick through the x made in the egg carton. Twirl the tops of these to give the effect of water spurting out of the whale.
Step 5: Cut out the whale tail and fins using the blue craft paper following the general shape shown. You can either stick this on with sticky tape or with PVA glue.
Step 6: Glue down the googly eyes and draw on the face and your whale is complete!
