On another note...looking for something fun to do with the kiddos home from school on this dreary Columbus Day? These are a tradition in our house and the kids have a blast every year making a super clean mess...
Next, hollow out the middle...
...taking care not to do this....
If you do find that your little one is a little overly ambitious with the knife (and it becomes not-so-sea-worthy), simply use soap shavings to plug the hole.
Attach sails to popsicle sticks or toothpicks.
And if you're like me, you'll have at least one non-conformist child (can you guess who?) who will want to title their own ship.
Fill a huge bin with water or let your little ones spend an hour in the bath sailing their fleet of ships!
Simply shake off shavings and throw drop cloth in the washer....no laundry soap necessary:)
HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY!!
