This is a fun picture to make and to play with. The canoe is 3D and the figures sit in the canoe rather than being stuck down so they can be moved around and changed. We cut out some pictures of people from a childrens' clothing catalogue, but you could also use photos or draw your own characters.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's with help, 5-10's
Level: Medium

Materials
A4 size sheet thick card

Method
Draw a watery scene on the bottom half of your thick card with the blue, green and grey crayons. Draw a yellow sun at the top.

Cut two small rectangles from the dark coloured card and glue onto the ends of the two lollipop (popsicle) sticks. Leave these to the side to dry. These are the paddles for your canoe.

Mix blue paint with some water to make a thin wash and brush over the thick card on top of the crayon. The crayon wax will resist the paint and shine through.

Cut up the blue cellophane into small pieces and glue on to the bottom of the scene to make watery waves

We cut our people out of magazines but you could also have fun drawing your own


You can now put your people into your canoe scene. As they are not stuck down you can move them around and change them around.

Give your people names and make up a story about where they are going canoeing, what they see, what they have brought for their picnic etc.
