Supplies: 
  • 1 straw
  • 1 cardboard milk or orange juice carton
  • 1 cork
  • 1 bottle cap
  • 1 paper cup, small
  • Clay
  • Construction paper
  • All-purpose white glue
  • Hole punch
  • Safety scissors
Instructions: 
  1. Using safety scissors, carefully cut the milk carton to look like the pirate ship.
  2. Using the hole punch, punch a hole through one side of the carton big enough for a straw to slide through.
  3. Place a small piece of clay on the far side of the hole. Push the straw through the hole, applying some force to make the straw stick to the clay.
  4. Cut a square piece of construction paper for the sail. Decorate.
  5. Punch two holes in the sail on the top and bottom, big enough for the straw to slide through.
  6. Slide the straw through the holes in the construction paper.
  7. Punch a small hole in the bottom of the paper cup, big enough to put the straw though.
  8. Put a piece of clay on the inside of the cup and slip the cup through the top end of the straw.
  9. Push the straw into the clay in the cup to keep the cup in place.
  10. Glue the bottle cap to the side of the cork to create the steering wheel.
  11. Glue the steering wheel to the inside of the milk carton.
  12. Now you have a pirate ship!
