Hit the high seas with a handmade craft stick and paper sailboat.
Step 1
Print and cut out pattern. Trace the boat shapes onto white cardstock.  
 
Step 2
Color and decorate the boat shapes using markers. Turn it over and color the back. 
Step 3
Line up one side of the boat to the bottom of the boat. Use a piece of clear tape and tape the side to the bottom. Repeat taping all along the side of the boat until it is full secured to the bottom of the boat. 
Step 4
Repeat for the other side of the boat, starting at the front of the boat making sure to line up the front pieces and tape them together. Tape all along the side of the bottom adhering it securely to the bottom of the boat. 
Step 5
Repeat for the back of the boat. 
Step 6
Color the mast holder piece the same color as the bottom of the boat, then fold on the lines. Cut a small slit at the fold just large enough for the craft stick to fit into. Insert the craft stick, then glue the back sides of the mast holder and press together to secure. Next, glue the 2 flaps to the bottom of the boat. Your mast should stand up straight from the bottom of the boat.  
Step 7
Cut 2 sets masts out of construction paper and glue onto the craft stick. Glue one set back to back at the top of the stick and one set back to back under the first set. Add geometric foam stickers as desired.
