When building the sail it is very important that you make it very strong so securely tie the pieces together and then put a liberal amount of glue on them. In the picture here you can see I tied it with wire and then applied hot glue to secure it. To add the sail (I recommend you actually do this before you glue the whole thing to the boat). This picture shows the sail in place so you can get an idea of what the finished sail should look like. If your boat mast and sail are built very strongly you probably don't need these guide wires but I recommend you do them any way. Backyard Ballistics: Build Potato Cannons, Paper Match Rockets, Cincinnati Fire Kites, Tennis Ball Mortars, and More Dynamite Devices Want to get a little more creative? Reading Confetti have come up with a super simple craft that recycles those many toilet rolls  that don’t take long to collect.
What a wonderful site, how many great ideas from all the contributors, I am sharing with all the young moms and care givers I can!!! Sponge and Duct Tape Boats (via The Craft Train) A cute and easy sailboat you can make out of some clever household materials that also make fun bath toys.


Ice Cube Boats (via She Knows) Cool off with these easy ice cube boats - a great outdoor summer craft. Cork Boats (via Kate's Creative Space) Save your corks and make these bright and fun miniature boats. Recycled Boat (via Mollymoo) If you have kids, chances are you've got plenty of empty milk cartons to play with.
Paper Boats (via Craft and Creativity) These paper boats can be made with different colored patterned papers. Egg Carton Boat (via Life At The Zoo) Here's another fun and easy recycled boat that uses egg cartons. Bottle Boats (via Droog) Next time you have empty cosmetic or shampoo bottles, save them and turn them into colorful sailboats that float! Glue it firmly in place both at the wooden surface and at the crevice between the two bottles. You can just slip the whole bag right over the sail structure and poke a little hole so the mast sticks through it. And you can add some fun little details like gluing figures to the surface of the boat or making yourself a little flag for the top.


Sign up for our weekly newsletter to get creative ideas for kids, fun projects, recipes and more! I have also taken this project a bit further than normal and added some remote controls to it. And you can use two liter plastic bottles which work the best but you can use any size plastic bottle that you want.
Below is a picture of the same boat that I added a remote controlled rudder to so it could be steerable.
If you want a better looking sail you can also lay your bag flat down on a table then use masking tape to make an eight inch square and cut it out.
