Construct a tabletop fountain similar to the photo.  The shape of the fountain can be your own design.  Basic construction will include a small electric pump (provided) that delivers water to the top of the fountain.  The water can fall down into the base which holds the supply of water and the pump. The base can be a purchased bowl or one of your own design. Several types of bases will be demonstrated.  The flow direction of the water will be the fun part.  You can build your fountain so the flow of water travels interesting ways to the base.

Check out fountains on the internet, or at your local garden center to get your creative juices flowing.
