Download Activity Sheet

Get ready to sail the seven seas by building and decorating your own 3D Wooden Boat!

  • Step 1Before you assemble your 3D boat, trace around each piece to create a template. This will help you later if you decorate your boat with paper.
  • Step 2Assemble your 3D boat before decorating to ensure easy construction. For permanent assembly you may need to glue the pieces together.
  • Step 3Paint your boat white. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 4Look to our boat designs for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 5Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your boat. Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your boat using a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.
  • Step 6Paint your design onto your boat. Allow to dry.
  • Step 7Gently apply a coat of glitter paint to add a touch of sparkle.
  • Step 8Alternatively, you could decorate your boat using craft paper. Lay your template (created in Step 1) on the reverse side of your craft paper, trace the shape and cut out.
  • Step 9Attach the craft paper to your boat using slightly watered down PVA glue.
