Each child needs a clean, empty baby food jar (the small size), some blue Play doh, a toothpick, a small triangular shaped piece of paper and one half of a walnut (shell). Have the children squish the play doh inside the lid of the jar (this is the "water"). Press the nut into the play doh (this is the boat). Press a little more play doh into the shell. Stand the toothpick up in the play doh (you may need to break the toothpick to make it shorter). Have each child write his/her name on the paper (the "sail") and glue or Tape it onto the toothpick. Screw on the jar and stand it lid side down - voila! A sailboat!
Each weekday we will publish a family friendly tip.
