Kids/Youth Designs

Army Mayhem

Ken Neff from Christ Central (Kidz Studios) in Lake City, FL brings us this bellicose kids’ design.

This stage set was created primarily with recycled material from other sets and left over paint that was first purchased at $5.00 a gallon in the mis-tinted section of the Home Improvement stores. The tank frame was made of 2×4’s covered with styrofoam sheets and styrofoam packing material. The cannon was a carpet roll cut in half and the fire was nothing more than left over tissue paper. The wheels were hefty plates that are military approved and war-zone tested.

The jet was also made from styrofoam and kraft paper and packing tape. A 2×4 was placed in the center and eye hooks inserted so the slick steel wires used to hang it up could be connected beforehand.

The camo wall was brown, tan and green kraft paper cut out in odd shapes and stapled to the black existing wall.

The burlap was bought in the garden shop of the big box store used for flower beds as it was much cheaper than the fabric dept.

The greenery was items used many times throughout the church and bought 10 years ago for weddings.

Total Cost $24.00
Est. Time 16 hrs.
