Boat Fun: Tips for boat operations
Just for Fun: Toy Boat Time!
Take a few minutes to make a paper boat for your kids. The tiny sailboats handle well (provided you sail them downwind) and they race! Put them in a bathtub or a puddle and watch them go. To enlarge the pix, just click on them.
3/ Now get your racer ready for the water. Be certain to give your boat's bottom a bend to create a slightly sharpened bow (the pointy end.) You can add cockpit coamings. You can draw in a little sailor, too, if you'd like along with a wheel to steer the boat. Don't hold back on the colorings. This boat was designed for kids to make in the back seat of a car during a trip or in the cockpit of an actual boat and sail later.
