Kids Frugal Fun: Columbus Day Ship

Each week I bring you a craft that is fun, educational, and frugal.

Next week is Columbus Day so Will and I decided to make a ship with things we found around the house. For past crafts, visit here [1].

Columbus Day Ship

Materials:

1 Sponge
1 Straw
Construction Paper
Marker/Scissors

Directions:

1. Cut the sponge into the shape your child chooses.
2. Cut 2 small holes into the sponge where the “masts” will go.
3. Cut the straw in half and put each half into each sponge hole.
4. Cut 2 triangles out of the construction paper and allow your child to decorate them.
5. Poke 2 holes into each triangle that the straw will “thread” thru.
6. Sail your “ship”.
