Scholar_Ship Craft

What you’ll need

  • Half-gallon carton
  • Heavy duty large straw
  • Tape
  • Cereal box
  • Glue stick
  • Paper
  • Your A Papers from school
  • Crayons or Markers to color your design

My Scholar Ship is a modified version of a boat craft I found online at: http://spoonful.com/crafts/love-boat .

How to make it

  1. Love Boat - Step 1Start with a clean carton. Cut off the plastic spout or tape the cardboard spout shut.
  2. For the bow, cut a 3¾- by 10-inch strip from a cereal box, fold it in half, and tape it in place as shown.
  3. Use tape and a glue stick to cover the carton with paper. Cut a mail slot in the ship’s top to store all your A papers from school.
  4. Use a glue stick to add stripes to the sides  (Be sure to color a design on them first.)
  5. Poke a small hole the deck and insert the straw.  Now tape your best A paper to it making a sail for the boat.

Be creative and have fun!

Color Alex’s World Activity for Girls

Alexis’ books are called Alex Stories.  Alexis likes having two names because they show her feminine side and her sporty side.  When Alexis is at formal events or school she goes by the name of Alexis, but when playing with her friends and exploring her friends call her Alex.  Alex is a special nickname that only her friends know and use. Do you too have a nickname too?  In the picture below you see Alexis and her Storicolor®, storybook Alex picture.  They are in front of her home in São Paulo, Brazil.  Bring the home to life by coloring it.  You can find more pictures to color in the Alex Storicolor book, Ten Acts of Kindness, found at www.Via-E.com.
