Fun and easy boat crafts for kids of all ages to enjoy!
Remember how fun it was, when you were a kid, to try and make a boat that would actually float in a puddle or pool or pond?
Oh, those were the days – the days when our parents would shoo us outside, and we’d have to make our own fun the good, old-fashioned way.
The days before electronics and wi-fi and computer games and tablets.
Let your kids experience that same carefree, old-fashioned fun today by building a homemade boat, that they can float in your pool or in a storage bin filled with water (or even in the kitchen sink or bathtub).
Here are 19 awesome boat crafts that kids of all ages will enjoy making.
Some are easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers to make, and some will entertain the older kid crowd.
What’s nice is: most of these little homemade toy boats can be made using supplies and materials that you already have around your home. Yay!
