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.
Pretend play is an essential part of growing up, and as adults, its important for us to encourage toddlers and preschoolers to give it a go. Pretend play comes with many benefits too and helps develop a childs creativity, recreate social relationships and learn how to get along with others. Its also necessary developmentally too, being like a rite of passage as a child gets older.
