Cork Sailboats

In & Outdoor $
Craft Projects, Recycled

Activity Overview

These crafty little cork sailboats really float. If you are looking for a fun craft for kids that is easy to assemble and good for hours of fun, then this is the craft for you. This is a fantastic little homemade toy that appeals to a wide array of ages and offers plenty of opportunities for pretend play out in the backyard, in the bathtub or pool, in a sink or bowl of water.

Materials Needed

  • 3 corks
  • 2 thick elastic bands
  • Craft Foam
  • Lollipop Stick
  • Nail
  • Electrical, duck, or washi tape

How to Make Them

  1. Line three corks in a row.
  2. Attach them together with 2 thick elastic bands.
  3. Press the nail into the center of the center cork and remove. This will be the hole that you will hold your mast ( lollipop stick).
  4. Insert the lollipop stick into the hole that you just made in the cork. If you do not have a lollipop stick, a toothpick will also work for this.
  5. Draw a sail shape on your craft foam as shown above and cut out the sail. Poke a hole in the center top of the sail and one in the center of the bottom of the sail.
  6. Insert the lollipop stick through both holes so that the sail looks curved out to one side like there is wind in the sail.
  7. Fold a piece of desired tape over the top of the stick above the sail. This will be your flag. Trim to create the shape that you desire.
