PAPER SAILING SHIP
Materials
a sheet of paper, a little larger than this page
wax crayons
blunt scissors
Make a hat, pull on the corners, and surprise a waterproof boat.
1. Color a sheet of paper on both sides with crayons to waterproof.
2. Fold it in half the long way.
3. Open the paper and fold it in half the short way.
4. Take one of the two corners along the fold, and fold it into the center crease. Do the same with the other corner.
5. Turn up the end flaps.
6. Cut the corners off the flaps, and you have a hat.
7. Press the end folds of the hat together so that the middle creases become the outside folds.
8. Fold the bottom points up in the peak.
9. Again press the end folds together so that the middle creases become the outside folds, as in Step 7.
10. At the top of your folded square, three corner points come together to form one corner. Hold the two outside ones and pull them away from the middle point. Press down on the sides to complete your boat.
