Empty plastic spool of thread (two if small)
Plastic disposable cups
Duct (or heavy-duty masking) tape
Empty 2-liter soda bottle
Strong thread or dental floss
Plastic drinking straw
1. Cut a strip from the middle of the plastic cup(s) that is the same width as your spool of thread. Cut one rectangle from the strip about 1 1/4 inch from the cut edge. Use this rectangle as a pattern to cut rectangles of the same size from the strip until you have 6 rectangles. These are the blades of your wheel.
6. Cut a V shape in the top of the bottle. Cut another V directly opposite it.
8. On the other end of the thread, tie a metal washer.
9. Now place the waterwheel's straw in the notches you made on the 2-liter and put the waterwheel under a facet.
Children’s Museums are the fastest growing type of museum in the country and are unique among museums for the large number of interactive exhibits and educational programming presented to visitors. Visitors engage in hands-on experiences that inspire a curiosity for learning.
In 1987, a group of inspired citizens presented the idea of a children’s museum to Lexington Mayor Scotty Baesler and future Mayor Pam Miller. With the assistance of Lord Cultural Resources, a consulting firm in Toronto, the city began serious planning for the Lexington Children’s Museum. The site selection committee considered several sites and chose the current location in Victorian Square. Since first opening its doors in 1990 the Museum has hosted over three million visitors.
