Make a sailboat from recyclables
Any season is a great season to head out on the high seas – or to the local duck pond. Make yourself a sailboat for any season and get creative with colour. Race your boats and become a winner!
What you need:
- flat foam trays (meat trays work best)
- construction paper
- sticky tape
- PVA glue
- coloured markers
- string (optional)
Step 1. Gather your supplies
Step 2. Wash your meat trays and dry thoroughly
Step 3. Cut your construction paper into a triangle for the sail and decorate.
Step 4. Stick your sail onto your straw using the sticky tape and your straw to the tray using your PVA glue. Wait until this is dry.
Step 5. Attach the string to the end of your meat tray. This will ensure your boat will not get away from you should you sail it in a pond or creek.
