EPISODE 6 - Styrofoam Wheke

Make a Styrofoam Wheke!

•    A Styrofoam ball
•    Purple paint
•    A paint brush
•    Pencil
•    Purple paper
•    Glue
•    Scissors
•    Sequins
•    Googly eyes

1.    Start by cutting the base of the Styrofoam ball so that it sits flat. Then completely cover the Styrofoam ball in purple paint and leave aside to dry.
2.    Now take pencil and draw eight wiggly limbs on to the purple paper. When you’re happy, cut them out using the scissors, then stick the sequins to the limbs. 
3.    Once the ball is dry, it might take a while, glue the bottom to the limbs of the wheke. Then, stick the googly eyes to the ball, and your done!
