We’ve skipped out on a couple Friday Craft Days the past few weeks because of moving and what not but this last friday we took the time to create a little something while both the little girls napped (a rare occurrance these days!)
Without a lot of craft supplies at my disposal I’ve definately had to get creative with the
materials we use for craft time. So last friday the styrofoam packaging from inside a box we had
around turned into these fun little boats.
The kids (Emily 8 and Carson 6) loved making these a lot…especially Carson. We took our boats out for a sail later in the day when everyone had woken up from their naps and though they definately weren’t sea worthy we sure had a fun afternoon together making and sailing boats. Think of all the places you could sail your own boats – the bathtub, the kitchen sink, a container filled with water, a local river or lake (weather permitting.)
To create your own Recycled Sailboats all you need is:
-some styrofoam or other available material that could float
-some construction paper or other material for sails
-markers, crayons, & scissors to cut out and decorate sails
-a few wooden BBQ skewers
Looking for some other fun Recycled craft ideas, here are a few links worth checking out…
