2. Popsicle Stick Sailboat
Are there a ton of papers piled up in your house?
Besides recycling them, do you have any other ideas for using them?
Use all those papers to create an interesting craft with the help of this printable steamboat craft template idea!
This paper boat origami is also a fine motor exercise for our children because they will be folding the paper into a boat with their small hands.
Bring out your papers and let’s start building paper boat origamis!
Start with an A4-sized piece of paper, or any other type of paper you have on hand.
Fold the paper in half horizontally.
Then fold it once more in half.
Using the center fold as a guide, fold the corners down to form two triangles.
After that, a rectangle will appear underneath the triangle.
Fold up both sides of the rectangle.
Open the center outward until a square is formed.
One flap’s corner should be tucked under the other.
Each side should be folded upward.
Open it again while placing your thumb in the center so that it forms a square.
Pulling the corners out will make it easier to press flat.
Open the sides to form a boat shape.
3. Lego Ideas
We love using Legos for play.
My children, and even I, are always engaged with Legos!
Playing with Legos is a lot of fun and is really beneficial for our kids.
It promotes hand-eye coordination, problem-solving abilities, fine motor skills, and persistence and patience.
My kids instantly recommended that we build a steamboat out of Legos once I showed them the printable steamboat craft template!
This printable steamboat craft template idea was born out of my inspiration for it.
I printed a copy of the steamboat template and used it as a reference to assemble our Lego steamboats.
You might also use this idea in your school activities or in your classroom’s building blocks corner.
Give your kids the freedom to express their creativity as they assemble their steamboats from Lego or other building blocks.
