First pierce the skewer/toothpick through the bottom of the craft ball. This will make it easier to hold as it is decorated.
Using a pencil draw the outlines of the continents onto the ball.
Use the sharpies to colour the continents in green.
Leaving the bottom of the ball and top of the ball white to represent the poles colour the oceans in blue.
With a fine tip marker, annotate the globe with the names of the continents and the oceans.
We have a collection of polystyrene balls that I am trying to use up so for this project we picked these however, a wooden craft ball like this one. If you are making then you can hold it in place with some modeling clay attached to the bottom.
