Recycled Sailboat


Recycled Sailboat

Alttag here

• A wide plastic lid (like the lid from a cottage cheese container)
• A drinking straw
• Construction paper
• Kid’s scissors
• A hole punch
• Crayons, markers, and/or stickers
• A small ball of play dough or modeling clay

Alttag here

1. Help your child cut a right angle triangle from a piece of
    construction paper - this will be your sail.
2. Decorate the sail with crayons, markers and/or stickers.
3. Let your child watch as you punch three holes along the
    "mast” side of the triangle.
4. Weave a drinking straw through the holes to create a mast.
5. Let your child press a small ball of play dough or clay in the
    center of the inside of the lid.
6. Push the end of the drinking straw into the clay.
7. Float the recycled sailboat in the bathtub!

If you want the sailboat to be a bit more waterproof, you can cut the sail out of an old Ziplock freezer bag and be sure to use modeling clay instead of play dough.
