It has been rainy here and when it is not pouring rain it is steamy hot. Like I said I've been under the weather so we have been inside quite a bit this past week. We decided to make a sail boat from a soda bottle. C. loves boats so this was an activity right up his alley.
Soda Bottle Sailboat Craft
- 1 small soda bottle
- Garbage bag
- Duct Tape
- 4 clothes pins
- red paint & paint brush
Allow child to paint the bottle. Cut triangle sail from garbage bag. Duct tape edges to seal it and glue to side of a straw. Cut small area into soda bottle. Glue a clothes pin into the bottom of the bottle. Put your straw into the grasp of this clothes pin. Glue remaining clothes pins along the bottom of the bottle to stand your boat up. Allow child to add stickers to your sail. We used pirate stickers.
Soda Bottles are one of our favorite craft mediums. You might like some of our other bottle projects. Like these:
