Paper plates are great for crafts. They are cheap to buy and can be recycled when no longer needed. If you are telling a Bible Story with a boat in then this is an easy make to add to your Story Bag.

All you need:

Paper plate, tissue paper squares or pens/crayons, card or a lollypop stick for the mast, patterned paper for the sail, cellotape, blue waves made from card or construction paper (optional)


Use Cellotape to secure the mast.
