Art Activity: Boats
For this activity we gave the children sections of foam that were cut from swimming pool rafts. We also gave them pipe cleaners, toothpicks, plastic people, animals, buttons, beads, and other collage materials. The children used the toothpicks and pipe cleaners to connect the other materials to their foam pieces. Each child designed a unique boat that was able to float in water. Many of our kids took them home to use in the bath tub.
