It works!!!! – after a little alternation of the thickness of the rope…
At one point we thought it wouldn’t do. The problem was the rope – it was too thick. After we replaced it with twine, the candy bottle started sliding wonderfully in both directions.
The handles were made from empty toilet paper rolls that were cut lengthwise and rolled into thinner cylinders then covered with sticky tape.
The candy bottle was made from two plastic bottle halves. We slit the ends slightly to make them easier to fit together.
We threaded the twine then joined the bottle halves together with sticky tape. We covered the giant candy with crepe paper. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
That’s it. Each of the two pieces of twine was 3 meters long.
