The wonderful thing about doing crafts with my daughter is watching her creativity grow. Lately she has been taking the lead in what kind of crafts we do. A couple of nights ago before bed she told me that she wanted to make boats out of milk cartons. After I stopped grinning from ear to ear at her suggestion, I told her that we would do it the next day. Unfortunately, the recycling was taken out before I got home & our milk cartons were gone. We will have to wait a few more days or so until we finish another carton of milk, but in the meantime we can still make our boats.
Pasta Sailboat Crafts
Break up 4-5 pieces strands of spaghetti to form the shape of your boat. Glue them into place with glue.
Form waves using elbow macaroni & wagon wheels for port holes.
Let the glue dry for a few minutes before painting. Mai & I painted our pictures side by side.
Mai painted her boat & added a few extras. She painted in a black sun with rain, a jumping fish & a purple bat. She did a great job.
