Mayflower or Pirate Ship Craft
Instructions to make your own pretend ship.

Materials Needed:

  • Construction Paper
  • Styrofoam Meat Tray
  • Straw
  • Glue
Using brown construction paper cut out two boat shapes. Make the bottom flat. Glue the two shapes together along the sides.

Cover the top of the styrofoam meat tray with blue construction paper so it looks like water. Glue you boat shape in the middle of the styrofoam meat tray.

Cut 2 triangles out of white paper (or 1 large triangle), and glue it to the straw to be the ships sail. Glue the straw onto the styrofoam meat tray so it is coming up through the center of your boat.
