Why hang your racquet on a hook? Hang it on a racquet-shaped painting!

Materials and Tools:
1 sheet of foamcore board, at least 30 in x 24 in
large cutting board
tennis racquet
utility knife
marker
fine grit sandpaper
pencil
acrylic paints
paint brushes
2-inch screw
power drill
screwdriver

Steps:

  1. Grab your favorite tennis racquet and trace it onto the foamcore board with a marker.
  2. Place the foamcore board on the cutting board.
  3. Ask an adult to help you with this step. Use a utility knife to cut through the foam board, lightly at first (to score the material) and then re-trace the original cuts though the entire board.
  4. Lightly sand the edges with the fine grit sandpaper.
  5. With a pencil, let your imagination run wild and draw whatever designs your heart desires on your cutout.
  6. Use acrylic paints to color in the surface of the cutout.
  7. Has the paint dried yet? Now, find a place on the wall where you want to hang your tennis racquet.
  8. Ask an adult to drill a hole into that place.
  9. Hold your foam racquet steady (round side up) against a wall while an adult twists the screw into place.
  10. Leave an inch or two of the screw sticking out for your racquet to hang on.
  11. Hang your racquet on the screw and admire your handiwork.
