A simple junk model craft idea to make a cardboard box boat, along with some pirate themed play ideas.
How to make a cardboard box boat
My daughter loves all things ocean at the moment, and with a trip to the seaside coming up in a few weeks she’s thinking about how she might like to be a sailor. So when a big cardboard box arrived in the house she knew just what she wanted to do – make a boat!
She started her boat by making portholes, and fixed a deck inside the box, using a piece of the box held in place with sticky tape.
And her junk model cardboard box boat is ready to sail.
