On this day we decided to talk about the letter "W" and needed a craft about water. I had some scraps of wood in the garage so we used them to make this sailboat craft. It's really very simple.
Set out two shades of blue. Have the children paint the light blue on the top and the dark blue on the bottom.
Make sure they paint the sides.
While they wait for the paint to dry, have them practice writing the letter "W".
When dry, cut out scrap paper for the base and sails of your boat. Have the children glue them on.
Cut a length of straw for the mast. Help the children attach with glue.
These are easy to display as they can stand upright on thier own.
