It's done! And, truly, Eleanor did most of it. So, for all those who were indulgent with my squeeing, here's the polar bear diorama and thank you very much to all who offered help, especially [livejournal.com profile] knitmeapony. We're still fine-tuning the leaping fish, but, though they don't show up on the photo, we have snowflakes dangling from threads from the roof, so we have some 'movement' as you suggested ::hugs::. Need more snow but it keeps falling off the back wall...

Heh; we found an awesome recording of a polar bear howling but David, despite being an engineer, refused to work up some way we could incorporate that in, maybe with a button you could press to start a tape. I don't know. Some parents just don't support their kids, y'know? ;-)

Re: water_ question?


Hello Janedavitt,

I am helping my daughter (2nd grade) with a polar bear artic project. Could you tell me in more detail how did you make the water. You said bubble wrap painted white glue mixed with pain. What color is the paint? What glue? Name brand of glue. Elmers white glue. I think this is really cool. Thanks.

This is so super cool. I'm sure my daughter's science teacher will like the bubble water. Let me know asap. Thanks.

Re: water_ question?


I have to ask, what food colors did you use?
How long did it take to make. Trying to judge on timing since this is due January 15.

Thank you.

Re: water_ question?


Oh my gosh. Ten years ago and you still have inquiries about the water. That says a lot. Many inquiring minds really liked your idea and arctic habitat project.

My mom said just go buy blue bubble wrap at the store. I lol.

Re: water_ question?


I looked up polar bear arctic projects on Google. End results, I found two pictures posted of yours. I could not comment / post, so I created an account to ask you how to make the bubbled water. :-)

What a great Diorama. My son has selected the arctic for his habitat project. The water you created is really neat. We are going to try it for his project. Thanks for sharing your ideas

Re: water_ question?


I tried to make this, using poster paint instead of food coloring (with the glue), and it doesn't look anything like yours. I'll have to try again. Did you pop the bubble wrap?

Re: water_ question?


Wow... this really caught my son's eyes who is in kindergarten and he told me he'd use this as his project! Thank you for sharing. Where did you get the stuff inside of the box? I like the gestures of the polar bears and seals, but i just could not find it. Thx.
