Model Mayflower

Nearly four centuries ago, the 180-ton, square-rigged wooden ship Mayflower arrived at what's now Plymouth, Massachusetts, bringing with it more than 100 people. Here's how your child can set sail with a miniature square-rigger of his own.

What you'll need

  • Clay
  • Walnut shell
  • Colored paper
  • Toothpicks

How to make it

  1. Simply press a ball of clay into an empty walnut shell half.

  2. Create sails by mounting small squares of colored paper on toothpicks. Stick the mast ends in the clay, and the craft is ready to launch in a shallow bowl of water.
