How can I turn a staircase into a walk in whale?

Question by 32mifam: How can I turn a staircase into a walk in whale?
I’m head of an activity in my church and i’m trying to get some ideas on how to turn a stair case into whale kids can walk through. You know like jonah and the whale. Any ideas?

Is it an open staircase? I’d start out by getting one of those arches that you use for wedding altars, or in a garden, know the kind I mean? Using chicken wire, foam (the sort used for insulating a house and/or upholstering furniture) and paper mache, sculpt the top of the head, using that arch as a base for the jaw. You might be able to use fabric or vinyl tarps, instead of the paper mache, too.
