Crafting Instructions 

Step 1 Land Ho!

On your plastic circle, draw an image using markers. Use your imagination!  You can draw a whale, a treasure chest, a pirate (friend or foe) waving back at you, an island. 

Step 2 Batten Down the Hatches 

Glue the plastic disc to the opening of the paper cup. 

Step 3 Shiver Me Timbers! 

Attach the roll to the top of the paper cup with glue. Decorate as desired. I used gold tape and a few Jolly Rodger stickers on my spy glass.

Step 4 There she blows! 

Yo ho ho! You're all done.
