My daughter always asks me if she can make her own project for The Chocolate Muffin Tree and this is one of them: "How to Make a Sailboat". I've even let my daughter take pictures of her own projects step by step (but the photos didn't turn out.....we're still working on that). She sees me documenting the steps of everything all the time and sometimes I wonder what kind of effect will have on her? Maybe it means we just need to create without documentation of everything (we are working on that)....the spontaneity gets lost sometimes. Here is one of her adorable construction paper sailboats.
For this project you'll need:
2 Sheets of Construction Paper
Take it away C:
First you fold up the corner on a piece of construction paper like this.
Then you cut of the part that is showing and even it out.
Then fold it again on a corner. (Are you getting all this?) Then cut off the part that is showing again. This is the sail of the boat.
It should look like this.
Now take a different color of construction paper and fold it the short way. This is the boat.
Now take the sail and make sure it is folded together.
Place the sail on top of the boat and use clear tape for this, not glue.....!
Now, add stripes (or no stripes) on the sail with marker and add yourself and your name on the boat part and you are done!
Here is another sailboat that I (C) made.
What do you think of C's self designed project and instructions?
