Little Boats

Some carefully chosen recyclables became boats recently. I had picked the containers that I knew would float well and would hold a fair amount of “creativity” before sinking.

It didn’t take long until we had 3 little boats ready to try in a tub of water. Master C was able to make his independently, Master E needed some help to make a flag but did all the general decorating and Little Miss A mostly just had fun sticking colourful bits onto her boat.

Each chose a Lego man to ride in their boats. The current toy of choice which has no end in sight.

All their boats floated and they blew through a straw to make wind to push them along. Master E crafted a submarine later although was disappointed that it kept popping up to the surface instead of staying under like a submarine should.
