Doesn't matter
Sticky tape, colourful paper, drinking straw, margarine tub, scissors, colouring pens
With this fun and easy activity, you can go sailing whatever the weather!

Firstly, make your boat. Cut 2 identical triangle shapes of paper and let your little one colour it in. Then stick one each side of the straw to make a sail. Next, cut little slits at the bottom of the straw and bend out the plastic. Simply stick these ends down to the middle of the marg. tub and you have a boat!

You can set sail in anything from a washing up bowl to the bath. Or if it’s a nice day, why not launch your boat in a safe stream or paddling pool. If you make a few boats, you could have a race!
