Find an emptied paper milk carton or a soup carton. To cover up printing on your container paint it. Carefully cut a rectangle out of the top of your box so that your boat is hollow inside. Add any additional decorations to the outside such as windows or a stripe along the bottom!
To create a flag, fold a post-it note into a triangle and tape it to the end of a straw. Have a parent help you cut a hole for your flag near the front of your boat. Slide your straw into the hole to attach the flag.
Find a container of water and test out how much weight your boat can hold before sinking. We suggest using coins. Finishing note... You can make boats out of all kinds of materials. Try using different containers and see what floats best!
