You can choose between the simple Rowboat, followed by the Sailing Boat with a mast and finally the Sailing Yacht with three masts.
The enclosed aqua paper is floatable, so that the boats can sail around eagerly in a bowl, sink, tub or pond. In the evening the models should be taken out of the water to dry. The next morning they are ready for action again.
All models can be made twice, so that the entire fleet consists of 6 ships. In addition a substitute paper is enclosed.
To customize the models they can be painted with a permanent marker. Also acrylic paint can be used, but this can reduce the floatability of the paper. Therefore a test should be made beforehand.
Level of difficulty / Age bracket
