Pool Noodles Make Adorable DIY Sailboats for Kids (and So Simple to Make!) by Katie Lewis
Folding paper boats is fun, but why not take it up a notch? Making pool noodle sailboats is a fun and economical activity to do with your kids.
- pool noodle
- BBQ skewer as mast
- craft foam
- decorative tape
Here's how to make it:
- Use a serrated knife to cut a 10- to 14-inch length of pool noodle. Slice it in half lengthwise to create the hull of your ship.
- Cut two triangles from craft foam to create sails. Thread the foam sails onto a barbecue-skewer mast and stick into noodle with cut side down.
- Decorate as desired.
Try adding a number cut from red craft foam and making a flag out of decorative tape. So cute!
