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.
: 30 minutes
: Under 5's with help, 5-10's
Low cost materials
Lollipop stick paddles
Make a wash with blue paint and water
The wax crayon markings will resist the paint
The translucent cellophane makes great 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.
