  • plastic sheeting
  • flat iron
  • parchment paper
  • hose
  • food coloring


  1. Start with a large piece of parchment paper.
  2. Fold it in half (length wise).
  3. Draw a line about 2-inches from the fold (this is your guide for how far to iron).
  4. Begin with the edge of plastic opposite of its fold, starting at the corner.
  5. Open up your parchment and place your plastic inside, aligning it to the fold of the parchment.
  6. Fold the parchment back over.
  7. Use the hot iron to slowly melt the plastic together by running it across the line of your parchment.
  8. Let it cool for a few seconds before removing the parchment, then continue to seal all of the edges.
  9. Leave a small slit for you to fill it with water.
  10. Place the hose in a few feet and prop the corner up so that water does not spill out while you fill.
  11. Seal off the hole with a piece of duct tape.
