Let's Go Sailing

We are still focusing on transportation as our theme this week and today we made a sail boat.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need:  construction paper, hot glue gun, clear contact paper, straw, scissors, the bottom of a soda bottle, paint dobbers.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

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.
