Instructions

 
  1. Draw a triangle about 8 1/2", or use our Patriotic Sailboat Pattern to trace a triangle onto white copy paper, and cut out.
  2. Now you will cover the tip of the sailboat with blue paper. Trace the tip of your white triangle, or use our pattern, and trace onto a blue blank card and cut out. It should be about 2 1/2 inches long. Glue it onto the tip of the sailboat. Put on a silver star sticker.
  3. Take 3 red stick-a-lick chain strips. You will stick them on by licking the back and then sticking them onto the white surface horizontally. The first one should start an inch under the blue. Leave an inch of white before the second and another inch of white before the third. Then trim the chain strips evenly with your triangle.
  4. Use a hole puncher to punch a hole through each red strip,about 1/4 inch away from the straight edge (left) of the sailboat. Weave the straw through the 3 holes, starting in the back, working your way down. It should stick out about 3 inches on the bottom.
  5. Form a small ball from Dazzlin Dough and wedge onto the rim of a can. Gently wedge the bottom of the straw into the Dazzlin Dough.
  6. Your sailboat craft is now complete! Try it out; it actually floats in water! You can try it in a bath tub or simply fill a large bowl with water.
*Tip:
Teach child to use it gently so it shouldn't fall into the water.
