Who is perched on or near your computer? This Monitor lizard, riding a skateboard, adds fun to your desktop!
Design your own Monitor companion! You’ll start by choosing an armature on which to build your lizard. Find something recycled (perhaps a water bottle) or bendable (such as wire). Here’s how we made this skateboarding lizard.
Twist two chenille stems together and curl the end to form a head. Twist two more stems onto the body, spaced to form arms and legs. Add another one on the end to form a tail.
Prepare your Crayola Model Magic® modeling compound. Knead together several colors to get the right shade for your monitor. Cover the entire armature. Use your fingers to get the desired thickness and shape.
Create a pointed head with long jaws. Press on two craft eyes, or make eyes with Model Magic bits. Use different colors to add detail to your lizard, real or pretend. Add claws, a spine, a forked tongue, or polka dots. Maybe top it off with a hat or sungl
With Crayola Scissors, cut four rounds from a cardboard tube to form the skateboard wheels. Cover them with a bright Model Magic color.
Cut cardboard into an oval for a skateboard. Make it large enough for your lizard to stand on! Cover the skateboard with Model Magic, both top and bottom. Invent your own wild designs on the skateboard!
Press the wheels on the bottom of the skateboard. Place your lizard on top. Press firmly. Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. Where will you perch your lizard? Is your Monitor on?
