  • Peel off the label and rinse through.
  • The bottle is to be transformed into a body.
  • The body is to be a representation of a sports person (e.g. Mo Farrow).
  • Any materials can be used to make the head, the arms, the legs, hands and feet (e.g tennis player head could be the ball).
  • Attach the body parts to the body.
  • Name your person character.
  • Make sure you add a tag to your model which lets us know your name and class.
  • Cross your fingers you are the winner!
