Paint/colour a paper plate to resemble a snowy mountain scene. We have included the sky and some clouds on ours.
Use a hole punch or scissors to make one hole at the 10 position on the clock face of the paper plate and then make a second hole at the 2 clock face position.
Thread the string through the two holes and secure in place by tying two knots on the back of the paper plate. Ensure the knots stop the string from pulling back through the holes.
Hold the bendy part of the straw, and then cut the straw at the point about 4cm above the bendy part of the straw.
Cut the piece of card to make a seat for your figure then attach this to the straw using blu tack or glue.
Thread the paperclip through the straw and then hook the paperclip onto the string attached to your mountain scene
Secure your figure in place on the card seat with blu tack. Use blu tack so your figure is not permanently stuck on a never ending ski lift
Slide your Skier (figure) up and down the ski lift!
