For the fourth week of our transport theme, we made boats and floated them in a bowl of water.
This is a really simple craft to make with your toddler but one which provides lots of fun. Little imp has been playing with her boat in the sink and the water table all week :0)
To make your own you will need:
A foil of plastic tray
A wooden lolly stick
A small piece of card
Play d'oh or similar
Collage materials to decorate sail
Stickers and foam shapes to decorate the outside of the tray
Characters cut from a magazine to be the passengers in your boat
Let your toddler start decorating the foil tray whilst you snip 2 holes in the card and slip the lolly stick through to form the mast and sail.
Now let your toddler decorate the sail.
Place a ball of play d'oh in the middle of the tray and secure the mast in place
Your bateau is now ready to set sail :0)
