  1. First squirt ¼ of a cup of blue paint add another ¼ of water and then add 2 generous squirts of washing up liquid and mix.
  2. Place this on a large tray or washable surface as it will overflow.
  3. Gently blow bubbles into the mixture and as they build up on top print the paper into them until you have a full sheet of bubble print.
  4. Once this is dry use the template to cut out the whale shape.
  5. Punch a hole in the top and thread the pipe cleaners through securing them at the back with sticky tape.
  6. Create a hook out of a pipe cleaner and stick this on also.
  7. Draw a face and stick on a wiggle eye.
