Ocean in a box!

I started making origami boats for my son to play with at bath time. After discovering that paper boats go bad after his bath, he no longer wanted to put them in the water for fear that “they will die”. So that is when I came up with this Ocean in a Box project that Lucas and I can work on.

On the top, he can play pretend with his boat that they are at the ocean and on the bottom is a storage unit, a place for his boat to sleep when he is done playing.

To make this, you’ll need:
-a box
-construction paper
-scissors
-tape
-glue
-origami boats
-stickers
– lots of patience (if working together with a preschooler)
