Water is an essential part of Kiwis identity and many under 5's grow up spending their holidays at the beach, fishing off the rocks, swimming in a pool or learning how to drive a boat. Yet according to Safekids Aotearoa, drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children between 1 and 4 years old.
These toy sail boats are easy to make and perfect for summer time. Kids can play with them in a paddling pool or bucket of water, or even in the bath before bed. They are great as an educational tool too.
