How to make this craft

Directions

Trace the bottom of the water bottle on the blue construction paper. Cut out the circle.

Place the water bottle on the remainder of the blue construction paper piece. Using a pencil, mark the paper for the length of the bottle. Fold the paper and then cut along the line created by the fold.

Run a line of glue along the bottom of the bottle and attach the blue circle. Then, run glue down the side of the bottle and roll the construction around the bottle, gluing where the paper overlaps.

With a utility knife, carefully cut a space through the paper into the bottle to create an opening. Push the paper and the flap into the bottle.

From the white and the yellow paper, cut two skinny strips from each piece. These should be glued to each side of the police car as the racing stripes.

Use a circle hole punch or by tracing a circle on to the black paper, create four circles for the wheels. Attach to the car.
