DLTK's Bible Crafts for Kids
Origami Boat

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

origami boatThe origami boat is a fun craft for older grade school children to make for a number of themes including:  Columbus Day, learning about Japan, Transportation, Oceans and Buoyancy.

And for some Sunday School themes including Jonah and the Whale, Noah, Jesus Walks on Water or Jesus and the Fisherman themed lesson.

Yes, the boat will really float, but as the paper gets saturated with water, it will sink and be ruined.  This can actually start a neat discussion about what made the boat float to begin with and then what made it sink.
