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.

Toy sail boats are also a great education tool, which you can use to teach your toddler or preschooler about how sails work in the wind and the importance of water safety when you're out in a boat.

They can help enhance their mathematical and science skills (floating, sinking, heavy and light) and hand-eye coordination too.
