We are still focusing on transportation as our theme this week and today we made a sail boat.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper, hot glue gun, clear contact paper, straw, scissors, the bottom of a soda bottle, paint dobbers.
Cut a triangle from the construction paper and decorate it with the paint dobbers. This will be your sail.
While your child is decorating the sail, you can cut a slit in the straw about 1/3 of the way down.
Use the hot glue gun to glue the straw into the bottom of the soda bottle. Glue the non-cut side into the bottle.
Once your child finishes the sail- cover it with contact paper to keep it from getting ruined when it gets wet.
Slide the sail into the slit of the straw. Add a thin line of glue with the hot glue gun to the side of the sail to keep it from falling out of the straw.
Put your boat in the water and play!
Add some people and enjoy your boat.
