In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story, “Spring Thaw Paddle Tour”, Martin has a fever and won’t be able to attend the annual Spring canoe tour. So Sylvia decides to make him his own “boat tour” from things she has found at home. Would you like to make your own boat show? Sylvia uses clean sponges, Popsicle sticks and a few pieces of duct tape to make hers.
You can cut the sponges with a pair of scissors, make the sail out of duct tape (you choose the colors!), and then stick the mast (the popsicle stick through a small slit in the sponge - and voila! Bath boats!
