Whiskers’ Whale Friend
Every journey needs a guide; be sure an adult is by your side!
Every JAMBO’S JOURNEY activity MUST have an ADULT’s supervision.
What You Will Need:
- ½ gallon plastic milk jug
- silver duct tape
- silver pipe cleaners
- googly eyes
- plastic water bottle cap
- construction paper
- silver fabric
- clear or silver beads or stones
Get an adult to help you cut a large V shape into both sides of the bottom end of the jug, removing the bottom of the jug. This will be the whale mouth. Be sure to save the V shapes and the bottom of the jug to be the fins later!
Cover the entire jug with strips of the duct tape so that the entire jug is now the same grey as a whale. Ask an adult to cut small slits into the side of the jug.
Cover the previously cut out Vs in duct tape and silver fabric. Then insert the fins into the slits and ask an adult to use a dab of hot glue to keep them in place.
Use the base of the jug from earlier to cut out another v-shape. This one will be the tail. Cover the tail with silver fabric and insert the end into the jug opening (from which you pour).
Again, ask an adult to use the glue gun to secure the tail from the inside of the jug.
Grab the water bottle top and glue 4-5 silver pipe cleaners to the top. Curl the ends of the pip clears for the spout of your whale and glue it to the top of its head.
Hot glue on the large googly eyes and your whale is ready for a cool dip in the Big Deep with Whiskers!
