KID ALERT: How To Make A Pokemon Pokeball Diorama
Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
-Red and clear candy ball from Party City
-Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
-Slices of pool noodles to use as a base so the ball doesn’t roll
Optional supplies: plastic trees, rocks, fake ice, fish tank rocks.. etc.
Pro Tip: Amber used a tortilla press to flatten the play dough
Pokemon Pokeball Instructions:
-Slice a pool noodle to use as a base or roll a towel upend place under the red half of the poke ball. This will keep it steady.
-Hot glue the 3″ x 1″ styrofoam disk inside the red side of the candy ball. This will be your base. (You can also find these at Dollar Tree in the floral section)
-Pick a Pokemon figurine to live in the pokeball and design a world for.
-If you’re familiar with your Pokemon, then you may want to design their pokeball to go with their element (fire, ice, electricity or water).
-Spread out the playdough on top of the styrofoam. Depending on the colors you use, it could represent grass, ice, lava, melted ice-cream..etc.
-Place your figurine in the playdough and start designing a diorama for your Pokemon.
