Kids will love hearing the story of the pilgrims venturing out on the Mayflower as you make this craft together.
We designed the Ship Craft for the November issue of local parenting magazine Raising Arizona Kids.
This project uses supplies you probably have around the house mainly paper, scissors and tape. The sails are held in place by straws. Any old straws will do — we used orange striped paper straws leftover from a party. For the full instructions visit RaisingArizonaKids.com.
