Week 14 – Make A Rain Catcher

With the british weather being as unpredictable as it is we thought this weeks Project 52 should celebrate  the rain. Read on for our homemade rain catcher project. Have fun.

You will need:

An old wooden spoon

A lollipop stick


Permanent markers (sharpies work well)

Google eyes

decoration for hair (we used pipe cleaners and a feather)

A jug or old drinks bottle (if using  bottle cut the top off)

You will need to:

Decorate your spoon with a face and hair.

Leave to dry

place outside and check every week (you can let the rain accumulate to reach the markers). The smaller the jug the higher the rain will get.
