How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paper
  2. egg carton
  3. scissors
  4. markers
  5. stick
  6. tape
  1. Take an old egg carton, cut the lid off, then cut it in half. (Older kids can try this themselves with safety scissors.) If you'd like, decorate the bottom of your boat.

  2. Next, grab some white paper and markers and decorate the sail any way you like.

  3. Cut the paper diagonally, from corner to corner to make a triangle-shaped sail. Next, tape a coffee stirrer stick (or another type of stick) to the back of the sail.

  4. Push the stick in the middle of the carton and prepare to cast off! Fill your boat with little friends to take along on your adventure.
