Great Gas Pump

 Make a great gas pump to fill up your cars and trucks!

Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need tin foil, a large rectangular box, many pipe cleaners, heavier weight paper, scissors, glue, tape, crayons, markers, and other materials to decorate the gas pump.

 First take the box and tape all the flaps shut. Next take two craft sticks and tape them together. Insert them about 1/5 of the way from the top on the left side of the box and tape or glue them in place.

This is where you will hang the gas nozzle when you are finished pumping gas.

Now take a number of pipe cleaners and weave them together end to end to create a long hose.

Cut out a nozzle to attach to the end of the pipe cleaners and a large rectangle to tape or glue to the front of the gas pump for the gas gauge.

 Cover the box in tin foil and then glue the gas gauge on the front.

Attach the pipe cleaner hose to the side and bend it into large loops.

Now decorate your gas gauge - add price per gallon, ads, credit card signs, etc.

Enjoy Crafting!
