Small box
Brown paint
Paint brushes
Clay or play-doh
Drinking straws
Black marker


  1. Cut the top off of the box so you have an open, rectangular box to start with.
  2. Paint the box brown and let dry.
  3. Pull one end of the box a bit so that it forms a point to be the front of the boat.
  4. Cut a few squares out of paper to make sails. Make them different sizes for a nice look.
  5. Poke a hole in the top and bottom of each square of paper. Thread a drinking straw through both holes and push the top and bottom of the sail towards the center to get it to bend.
  6. Once the sails are made, place a ball of clay in the bottom of the boat and stick the straw into the clay so that it stands up.
  7. Use a marker to write “Mayflower” on the side of the boat.
