2. DIY Pool Boats:
These DIY pool boats can be used for racing in a pool, creek, bathtub, or even a water table! If your kids love making their own toys and enjoy a little summer competition, this is the perfect activity for them! All you need is 3 wine corks, a toothpick, rubber bands, cotton strings, and some cardstock paper!
Step 1: Wrap 3 wine corks with two rubber bands.
Step 2: If you plan to race your toy boat in a creek or lake, attach a length of cotton string to keep your boat from floating away. However, if it does happen to float off, it is made from natural materials that will break down and decompose.
Step 3: Insert a toothpick into the middle cork (in between the two rubber bands) to form the mast. Add a cardstock sail by threading it through the toothpick, as shown.
