To promote the book I’m giving you a sample of one of the new crafts! This paper plate boat uses just a few craft materials, and it is very cute! Keep reading to see our VIDEO!
To make this craft we used:
- White paper plate
- Blue paint in two tones
- Craft foam sheets
- Craft stick
- Craft knife and Cutting Mat
Invite your child to paint the paper plate – lighter blue for the sky and darker blue for the ocean.
While the paint is drying, cut some sails and hull shapes from the craft foam. Attach the boat parts to the top of a craft stick.
Use a craft knife to cut a wavy line into the lower part of the ocean (this is a job for an adult).
Insert the craft stick through the cut and make the boat bob up and down on the waves!
