Transform Your Cereal Box into a Sailboat
According to Breakfast Cereal Statistics, 2.7 billion cereal boxes are sold each year. The average American annually eats one hundred and sixty bowls of cereal. I’m not a mathematician but that sounds like quite a lot of cereal boxes to go to waste! The next time you are about to throw away one of your cereal boxes, consider upcycling. There are countless things you can do with cereal boxes rather than throwing them out. Your children will love transforming an everyday item into a fun toy. Cereal boxes are sturdy and reliant enough to make magazine holders, notebooks, drawer organizers, bookmarks, gift boxes, and much more. But today I’ll be making a sailboat!
What You’ll Need
Cut the sides of the cereal box to make it easier to cut the bottom of the cereal box off.
Cut the arch on both of the longer sides of the rectangle.
Now that you have a boat, you can decorate it by gluing or taping paper over it.
Use another part of the cereal box to draw two triangles. One triangle should be bigger than the other for sails.
Cut the sails out. You can also decorate your sails the same way you did for your boat.
Tape the sails at each end of the pencil.
Tape the pencil to the base of the boat and there you have it a cereal box sailboat!
