Arizona kids spend a lot of the summer in the water. Whether it’s pool time or tub time, they will love playing with a sailboat they have made themselves.
Use a serrated knife to cut a 10- to 14-inch length of pool noodle. Slice it in half lengthwise to create the hull of your ship.
Cut two triangles from craft foam to create sails. Thread the foam sails onto a barbecue-skewer mast and stick into noodle with cut side down.
Decorate as desired—we added a number four cut from red craft foam and a decorative tape ﬂag.
