At the end of the book we were really excited to see instructions on how to make a paper boat and a “sink or float” activity idea. The whole thing turned out to be totally spur of the moment but we got out some paper to make some boats and it ended up being such a fun afternoon activity with all of my kids.
As you can see there was a clear winner. Those clover stickers must have given him extra luck! 🙂 The paper boats only lasted 2 races before they were completely saturated. If you want it to last longer you’ll have to each make several different boats.
To continue our activity we also gathered the household items listed in the back of the book and had a little “sink or float” lesson. We all guessed whether the items would sink or float and then put them in the water one at a time to see the results. I made a free printable if you want to complete this activity too. We have a version with the household items listed or a blank worksheet to write in your own items.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
