Zip Line!

4 03 2011

Create a few characters, then send them whizzing down this miniature zip line! We decided to try our hand at Made by Joel’s zip line toy. All you need is a big paper clip, a metal spool, a few smaller paperclips, string, and some paper & pens.

Bend the large paperclip and attach the spool. Draw your characters and sandwich a paperclip between their front & back panels, bending and poking one end of the paperclip through the paper to make a hook above the character’s head.

Bend two more paperclips, then tape them to the wall. Tie each end of a piece of string or fishing line to one of the paperclips. Your zip line is now ready for use. Hook on one of your characters and let it ride!
