Boat Place Card
Paper boats mark each place at a special table just for kids. With some assistance, kids can assemble the boats and write the names on the name-tag sails.

- Fold a 5-by-7-inch piece of construction paper in half along its width, with the folded edge away from you.
- Mark the middle of the folded edge. Fold the two top corners in so they meet at the middle and form a triangle with a double-layer flap at its base.
- Fold the front flap up to the front; fold the back flap up to the back.
- Take hold of the center front and back of the triangle, and pull apart, pushing in the opposite corners so they lie flat against each other to create a diamond shape.
- Fold the front and back bottom corners of the diamond up the front and the back, respectively, to meet at the top corner. You should now have an open-bottomed triangle.
- Pull the triangle open, flattening the opposite sides against each other as in step 4.
- Pull the top layer out on both sides to form the hull of the boat.
- For a mast, weave a toothpick through a white paper name-tag sail; insert in the center of the boat.
