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.

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.
