I have fond memories of making boats as a child. I remember designing them, creating them and testing them out on the boating lake near where we lived. I want to my children to have fond memories too with these fun and creative boat crafts for kids.
Boat Crafts for Kids
I don’t know about your children buy my boys have always been obsessed with water and things that float and boats are no exceptions. We have spent many an hour making our own boats and one of our favourite crafts and activities were our surfboards and windsurf boards for LEGO mini figures.
What kid doesn’t love designing, creating and trying to float a boat a that they’ve made from scratch? It’s just one of those classic summer activities that every child has to try! We have a great selection of 20 fun and creative boat crafts for kids to make with things that you have around the home! Your kids will love building these boats, and then the best part – seeing if they float.
Just a heads up, if you are planning to use your boats on open water make sure you attach a line to them, so you can pull them back!
