Craft Stick Raft
Children as young as preschool age will enjoy building this simple raft using Jumbo Craft Sticks.
- Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Craft Glue
- Clear Tape
- Foam Stickers
|Step 1. Gather your supplies.|
To make the raft, lay down (7) Jumbo Wood Sticks vertically. Glue (2) Jumbo Wood Sticks horizontally across the (7) sticks to secure the shape. This will create the bottom layer of the raft.
|Step 3. |
Add Glue to the (2) horizontal Wood Sticks.
|Step 4. |
Glue (7) more Jumbo Wood Sticks to the Raft to make the top of the raft.
To create the mast for the raft, glue the end of one Jumbo Stick to the middle of another Jumbo Stick.
Glue another Jumbo Stick to the bottom of the mast to secure the shape.
Run some glue along the bottom of the mast, as shown.
Attach your mast to the middle of the raft and let dry.
While the raft is drying, you can make the sail. Fold the top and bottom edges of your construction paper as shown.
|Step 10. |
Turn over the construction paper and decorate with the Stickers.
Use the clear tape to attach the top folded edge of the sail to the top of the mast.
Before you tape the bottom of the sail to the mast, push the sail up a little to create a nice puff in the sail, as shown. Then tape the bottom folded edge to the mast.
|Step 13. |
Your raft is now ready to set sail.
