1. Paint the brim of yellow hat in grey to imitate the road, add some white paint to the same grey paint and apply to the top to create the cloudy sky.
2. Print the template onto cardstock and cut out the lines to make a sturdy template.
3. Use pencil to trace the elements onto foam sheets and cardstock, cut around with scissors and with a help of a scalpel to remove the shapes inside.
4. To stick the bus and the car together use red tape, after the vehicles are formed use hot glue to reinforce the four sides on the inside.
5. Use tacky glue to assemble the foam pieces. Use black and white Posca to add details to the foam elements.
