Smooth Sailing

Source: Martha Stewart Kids


Building a sailboat is a breeze with just a handful of supplies.


  • Decorative paper

  • Scissors

  • Hole punch

  • Straw

  • Play dough

  • Coffee can lid


  1. Cut decorative paper into a right triangle, with the bottom shorter than the vertical edge.

  2. Punch three holes along vertical edge. Weave a drinking straw through the holes.

  3. Lodge the end of the straw into a ball of play dough, and affix the sail to the top side of a coffee-can lid.
