This is a fun project that requires some adult assistance and supervision.
paper for sail (I’m using pattern paper here)
toilet paper tube
scissors (adult and child pictured here)
popsicle stick or pencil
Optional: paint, stickers, markers for decoration
Step One: Cut the paper plate in half. (pretend this is more equal in size)
Put sides of plate together so that they make a pocket.
Staple or glue paper together.
Trim off the bottom (round) part of the plates.
(It will look like this)
Step Five: Take your square piece of paper and glue it onto the craft stick like this.
(Or onto the pencil like this)
Poke a hole in the toilet paper tube about 1/4 away from the edge. (This is an adult job, made easier with big scissors)
Insert pencil os craft stick into toilet paper tube.
Glue the sides of your toilet paper tube and such it into the paper plate pocket.
You have a boat! Decorate it however you want. Its sea worthiness will depend on what kind of plate you used. That can be a fun science experiment for another day!
