Paper Plate & Coffee Filter Boat
Print This Tutorial
Foam Paint Brush
Jumbo Popsicle Stick
Small Paper Plate
First cut your small paper plate in half. Straight up the center, into two equal pieces. Save one half for today's boat craft and the other for a rainy day!
Next have your child paint their paper plate piece completely brown. If you don't have craft paint, feel free to use crayons, markers, coloring pencils etc. to make this step happen.
When done painting, set it aside and let the paper plate half dry completely.
Now grab your light blue cardstock, blue tissue paper, scissors and school glue.
Cut out a handful of small tissue paper squares that will become the "waves" and/or ocean of the craft.
Go ahead and make a line of glue on the bottom of your light blue cardstock paper and let kids add the "tissue paper square" water to the craft. If desired, add a second row of water on top of that.
While children are working on that, go ahead and fold the coffee filter in half & then in half again. Use the school glue to secure it and make the boat sail.
Now the final steps and where it finally starts to look like a boat! Grab the painted paper plate piece, the folded coffee filter and the jumbo popsicle stick.
Start off by gluing the popsicle stick in the center of the decorated paper from earlier.
Follow that up by gluing down the paper plate piece and then the coffee filter sail.
Add anything else you see fitting and allow your paper plate & coffee filter boat to dry completely before you display it proudly for ALL to see!
