Underwater Submarine

  • Cover a round tin (I used a porridge tin) in a sheet of red card much longer than the tin itself.


  • Cut slits around either end of the red card. Bend the slits inwards slightly to create a curve and glue/tape in place.


  • Cover the middle of the tin with a piece of yellow card.


  • Cut out 5 blue circles from card and stick 2 circles either side of the submarine for windows and stick one circle to the front of the submarine.
  • Draw out cut out the propeller blades from blue card. Stick a yellow circle of card to the middle of the propeller and stick it to the end of the submarine.
  • Punch a hole with a pencil into the top of a paper cup and insert a straw. This is the periscope.
  • Stick the cup to the top of the submarine.
  • Decorate with stickers.
