3. To make the tailfins, use a sharp paring knife to cut three whole graham crackers into roughly triangular shapes. Round off the sides a bit to resemble a shark fin. Once you cut the first cracker to your satisfaction, you can use it as a template so the others are about the same size. Construction Citations When cutting graham crackers, score the surface first in the shape you want to cut. Scoring lightly with a sharp chef’s knife helps prevent breakage when you make the actual cut through the cracker.

This will be the base of the bucket. Arrange the remaining graham-cracker rectangles around the base to form the sides and back of the bucket, using chocolate mortar to hold it all together. The side pieces should sit on top of the base; the back should butt up next to it. Set the bucket in the fridge for 10 minutes to harden the mortar, if necessary. Attach the bucket with mortar to the flat bed of the truck. Fun Variation: Instead of gluing the bucket down flat, use a piece of pretzel rod to prop it up, like a hydraulic lift, as if the bucket were dumping.
