What you need:

  • Scissors
  • Small Square Box
  • Paper
  • Coloring Pens
  • Glue
  • Card
  • Pipe Cleaners

Step 1: Making the house

Take your small square box and glue paper to all sides so you have a white box. Now take the card and use this to make a pitched roof and glue this on the top, you will now need to use the card left to fill in the gaps where the roof pitches by gluing some extra card in place.

You should now have a 3 dimensional house in an all white color. It is at this opportunity you can now take the coloring pens and draw then colors the windows, doors, roof and walls of your Up house.

Step 2: Creating your Balloons

Cut out balloon shapes in paper and color them in using your pens, now take the pipe cleaners and glue them to the roof of your house then glue the balloons in groups of three or four on to your pipe cleaners.

You should now have a house that looks like the film Up with balloons above it that make it look like its going to float away.

For those that want to go the extra distance you can also create the star attraction of the Up film, the old man.

Step 3: Adding your Old Man

To do this, use a pipe cleaner to create a circle then draw, cut out and color the face of the old man and glue this to your pipe cleaner circle. You now have a face that you can glue to a window. Now take a pipe cleaner and cut two lengths of 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) and cut out then glue a hand on each, you can now glue these either side of the head at the window to make it look like he is reaching out of the window.
