Now you can go snorkeling without even getting your face wet with the Do-It-Yourself Snorkel Mask!
So what's there to do when you're standing knee-deep in a lake and you're just not up for a swim? Use a "snorkel mask" to check out what's going on below the water's surface!
What You'll Need:
- Plastic two-liter ice cream container
- Safe scissors
- Plastic wrap
- Rubber bands
Step 1: Cut out the bottom of a large ice cream tub. Adults may want to do this step for younger children.
Step 2: Cover this hole (and the sides of the container) with a large piece of plastic wrap. Tape the wrap in place.
Step 3: To make sure the plastic wrap stays put, slide a rubber band over it at the top of the container. Do the same at the other end.
Now you're ready for some underwater exploring! Place the plastic-covered end of your mask in some shallow water. Then, look through the open end of the mask and see if you can catch a glimpse of plants and animals in their watery home. Be sure you don't get any water inside the mask, though, or it'll sink like a stone!
