I’m back with another fun kid’s craft today! My husband and I used this one for children’s church a few weeks ago. We always begin children’s church with snack. Usually we serve water, but on this day we surprised them with juice pouches. After each child finished their juice, I took the pouches to the sink and cut them, washed them out, dried them, and had the pouches back in class in time for their craft. These Juice Pouch Boats were fun to make, and the kids were excited to relate them to the Bible story (we coordinated this craft with Matthew 14:22-33 for those interested in doing something similar). Thanks to CraftProjectIdeas.com for supplying today’s craft sticks!
- Juice Pouch, cleaned and dried
- Colored Craft Sticks
- Card stock, cut into a triangle sail shape
Cut the bottom of the juice pouch in a curved shape.
Glue the triangle sail shape to a craft stick.
Tape the craft stick to the inside of the pouch. Open up the pouch so the bottom is full.
I’ve been asked if these boats float. We actually had mixed reviews. Some of the boats did float while others only sank. Our purpose for the craft was not to have a float-able boat as much as it was to have a reminder to take home to initiate a discussion about the day’s Bible story. When doing this craft in a group, have the kids color the sails and possibly even the pouches.
