Simple Sailboats

ages 2-6


A wide plastic lid (like the lid from a margarine tub); a drinking straw; construction paper; kid-safe scissors; hole punch; crayons, markers, and/or stickers; a small wad of play dough

Activity Detail

You can make these cute little toy boats in just a few minutes. They are great for preschoolers and kindergarteners to practice cutting with scissors, drawing, and molding clay. Cut a triangle from a piece of construction paper - this will be your sail. Decorate the sail with crayons, markers, and/or stickers. Punch three holes along one side of the triangle. Weave a drinking straw (the boat's mast) through the holes. Put a small wad of molding clay on the inside of the lid. Push the end of the drinking straw into the clay. Turn your kitchen sink into an ocean, and go on an adventure together!

Remember to add the margarine lid part as the hull of the sailboat-that part is missing. Bathtime and kitchen sink fun!
