Sponge sailboats for bathtub adventures


By Caitlin Murray Giles


These sailboats are easy to make and will keep the kids entertained in the tub.


  • 4.7 x 3 x .6-inch sponges
  • Straws
  • Craft foam sheets
  • Scissors


  1. Begin by cutting a small slit near the top of your sponge.
  2. Cut a triangle shape for a mast out of your craft foam sheet.
  3. Add two slits into the foam so that the straw can be inserted as a "mast."
  4. Place the foam triangle onto the straw and trim any excess straw if necessary.
  5. Secure the straw into the slit in the sponge and prepare for your first bathtime regatta!
