Get Creative: Cork Boats

Tuesday 9th May 2017


  • Corks (can be purchase online or from craft store)
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Foam sheets (range of colours)
  • Rubber bands
  • Colouring Pens/Pencils
  • Scissors


In preparation, a leader should cut out the sails and flags from the foam sheets, with one of each for each child. Cut down wooden skewers as required to fit flag and sail and insert into cork.


  1. Decorate the foam sail and flag.
  2. Put the 3 corks together and hold together using two elastic bands.
  3. Push the wooden skewer through the flag and sail (top and bottom) and then insert the skewer into the middle cork.
  4. Test out the boats in a large bowl or small paddling pool. You could race them in pairs with children blowing the boats.
