Today we are making mini sailboats using milk jug lids ,if you follow my website ,few months back I had collected plenty of lids for a number activity here. So ,did you collect any lids ? If ,yes then what are you waiting , make the sailboats right away or start collecting the lids now….never too late. Kids can play and enjoy this activity indoors in winter and outdoors in summer.
Soda Bottle Lids/Milk jug lids
Mini Post-its / Construction paper
Old baby bath tub or any large container
Attach a construction paper triangle or a post it to a toothpick.
Press a small lump of play dough or clay into the cap.
Then insert the toothpick into play dough making mini sailboats .
Float a fleet of mini sail boats in the water tub or container.
Note: I have used Milk jug lids but soda lids are deeper and look much better. Mini Post its ,was easy for my 5 year old but the triangle flags definitely look better .Use different color construction paper for colorful looking flags .Kids can blow or use a cardboard sheet to wave ,helping boats move in the water.
