Create your own foam sailboat in this miniature boat activity. Then race the foam sailboat for an endlessly fun summer activity for kids.
What You'll Need:
- Clean foam trays (from fruits or vegetables only)
- Ballpoint pen
- Permanent markers
- Fabric glue
- Straight pin
How to Make Foam Sailboats:
Step 1: Draw a boat hull and a triangular sail on foam trays. Cut out the pieces.
Step 2: Decorate the pieces with permanent markers. Draw a sail emblem and your boat's name.
Step 3: Put a line of fabric glue (it's waterproof) on the boat hull and stand up the sail in the glue. Use a straight pin to keep the sail straight until the glue dries.
Step 4: Make a fleet for swimming pool races. If there is no wind, blow your boats from the start to the finish line!
