##### Step #1
Print and color the Ski Jumping Template.

We put two jumpers on one page in case you have two Lil’s, however we only need one jumper for the project.

##### Step #2
Cut out the Sk Jumping Template.
##### Step #3

Wrap the flap of the jumper around the coffee stirrer and glue it closed.

##### Step #4
Stick the coffee stirrer in the straw.
##### Step #5
Blow through the opposite end of the straw and watch the ski jumper fly through the air as if he is getting tons of air on his last jump.
