This months recycled challenge is to use take-out containers. Here in Ecuador most places will use styrofoam plates or those other burger sized styrofoam holders.
We used our bit of styrofoam and made 4 sail boats for the kids to play with in the bath one evening. Super simple and tons of fun in the bath too!
You will need:
- A Styrofoam plate or large holder
- some craft foam
- tooth picks (these are jumbo ones)
Cut out a base for your sail boat.
Cut a square of craft foam and then half it again to get 2 sails like below.
Put your tooth pick through the sail and let it bulge a bit as shown below.
Stick the other end of the tooth pick into your base Styrofoam. This can stick out a bit as it will be in the water.
Take it to the tub! My kids had fun with their sail boats and “modesty bubbles” I added to take the pictures of these sail boats. AND since they were particularly dirty kids the added time in the bath to play with the sail boats helped!
