Summer camp day 2

This was my activity in the free choice activity time. It combines all the stuff I love- crafts, water, building stuff and a little bit of friendly competition. We made sail boats out of milk cartons, straws, cellophane and tape. Lots of tape! Then we decorated them with permanent markers and floated, pushed, blew and raced them down the smaller of the rivers. It was so much fun and I was supposed to be just supervising! The kids got really into it and kept modifying their boats and trying again, then a little more tweaking then another run etc etc. The time flew (sailed?) by.

Ready... set......

And they're off!

Come on red! Come on blue!

The race wasn't without its hurdles...

You picked a great activity for the kids to do! I know my two boys would have loved that! And I like that you made them out of milk cartons and stuff. Very crafty indeed. And lol, about those sail boats that got stuck behind that big rock. The kids probably got to run and get them out and splish and splash while doing so. Looked like a fun day for the kids.
