Roll the cardboard into a cone shape and glue. Leave to dry before decorating.
Cover the blank school cone with the light green coloured card.
Now you're ready to decorate your school cone with the blackboard design. Cut out the blackboard frame with rounded corners from the brown coloured card and stick the black coloured card on top.
Use the edding matt paint marker to add lines and writing to your blackboard, along the lines of “Top of the class” or similar.
Position the blackboard at an angle and fix it in place using double-sided sticky tape.
Stick crepe paper around the inside of the open end of the cone.
Attach the sponge to the cord and glue the cord to the top corner of the blackboard – and now your school cone is finished!
