We have three fun and easy boats to share with you today.
Boat #1 is our Coffee Can Boat
- one plastic coffee can
- one dowel stick
- one piece of craft foam or material to cut sail out of
Stick dowel into can and add your sail very easy . It floats well and out sailed several of our other styles in the pool.
Boat #2 Orange Juice SailBoat
- one orange juice container
- scissors or craft knife
Cut out double sides of juice box (see photo) Save the material you cut out and cut a triangle for sail. Attach Sail to Dowel. Cut small hole to fit dowel through in bottom of the boat.
Boat #3 Papa's Pirate Ship ~
This boat has lasted all summer and he actually has two of them. That Papa is a crafty fellow and boy are we ever lucky to have him. He cut a board and added three holes to stick dowels through. From there he cut out a piece of canvas tarp and attached for the sail. We float these in the pool every day my little boat lover adores them!
We made a little video of our boats in the pool. Have fun. If you make a boat we'd love for you to share a photo on our facebook page!
