Hi there! It is pouring down rain and we needed a rainy day activity! So, as we were getting ready for my little guys 6th Birthday party next week, we thought we would get something done! He has requested a ferry boat theme…what???!?!?
Try googling that one! Apparently ferry boats are not as popular as garbage trucks, fire trucks, monster trucks, sail boats, police cars and any other vehicle you can think of!! I decided to take a nautical approach starting with these cute wine cork boats that the kiddos will float down a foil river in the driveway, stay tuned for that one!
We are wine drinkers in this household and that means lots of wine corks just waiting for a new use!! So, we glued two wine corks together and added a wooden skewer with a foam paper sail and voila! They are set for sail!!
The kids are already playing with them! Such a simple craft and now they have their own mini regatta set up in the living room!
Here is a scene from the party with the little sailboat’s in action on their first real regatta!
Success, for a rainy day!
