Supplies needed.

  • Paper plate
  • Craft stick or wooden dowel
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Poster paint, tempera, or acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Crayons or colored markers
  • Stickers, buttons, etc. (optional)

Step 1 Paper Plate Sailboat

1 Cut a paper plate in half.

Fold a paper plate in half. Cut along the crease.

Step 2 Paper Plate Sailboat

2 Trim off the plate's curved bottom.

Stack the two halves together. While keeping them aligned, cut a straight line 2½ to 3 inches from the plate's straight edge.

Step 3 Paper Plate Sailboat

3 Assemble the boat.

Position the two halves facing each other so that they form a boat-like shape. Make sure that the edges are aligned, then staple or glue all four corners together.

Step 4 Paper Plate Sailboat

4 Paint the boat.

Paint the boat with a water-based paint like poster paint, tempera, or acrylic.

Step 5a Paper Plate Sailboat

5 Make a sail.

To make a triangular sail, you can start off with a square or a rectangular piece of paper.

a.)   Square - prepare a square sheet such as origami paper. Fold it diagonally in half to come up with a triangular sail.

Step 5b Paper Plate Sailboat

b.)   Rectangle - begin with a rectangular sheet like A4 or Letter-size paper. If you used a small paper plate to make your boat, you may need to cut the paper in half for a smaller sail.

Fold one top corner of the paper down to meet the opposite edge, forming a triangle. Cut and discard the excess paper below the triangle.

Step 6 Paper Plate Sailboat

6 Decorate the sail.

Use crayons, colored pencils or markers to decorate both sides of the sail. You can also put stickers or glue some paper cut-outs.

Step 7 Paper Plate Sailboat

7 Glue a craft stick.

Unfold the sail and apply glue on all four sides of the square. Position a large craft stick or a wooden dowel along one side.

Fold the square again along the diagonal crease. Press on the edges to glue them in place.

Step 8 Paper Plate Sailboat

8 Cut a slit on a TP roll.

About ¾" to 1" from one end of a TP roll, cut a slit just wide enough for your craft stick.

If you used a wooden dowel instead of a craft stick, make a small hole on the TP roll using the tip of a pencil. Make the hole just wide enough for the dowel to get through.

Step 9 Paper Plate Sailboat

9 Position the craft stick.

Insert the bottom end of the craft stick or dowel into the slit or hole. Push until it touches the bottom of the TP roll.

The stick should fit snugly inside the TP roll's slit. If the slit is too wide, put tape around the craft stick to keep the sail steady and upright.

Step 10 Paper Plate Sailboat

10 Put the TP roll in the boat.

Place the TP roll inside the boat. The roll should fit snugly. If it does not, glue the sides of the TP roll to the inside of the paper plate boat.

Step 11 Paper Plate Sailboat

11 Add more detail.

You can further decorate your boat, if you like. Glue some buttons or foam shapes. To get your sailing theme going, make paper cut-outs of anchors, life savers, or flags. You can also draw and cut out paper people to ride on your awesome sailboat.

Though your boat looks all set for sailing, it is not made to float on water. Take it for a fun pretend sailing adventure instead!

MORE IDEAS - Create a fabric sail.

Create a fabric sail.

Instead of a paper sail, create one from fabric. Choose a plain piece of fabric or a colorful patterned one. Cut it into a triangle and glue it onto a craft stick or wooden dowel.

  • Fruit and Vegetable Prints
  • Potato Stamps

MORE IDEAS - Paint a wooden boat effect.

Paint a wooden boat effect.

For a wooden-looking boat, first paint the boat a light brown or beige color.

MORE IDEAS - Paint a wooden boat effect.

Once the paint is almost dry, use a dry brush to paint horizontal stripes in a darker shade of brown. Add very little or no water to the dark brown paint. Spread the paint a bit below each stripe so that it blends lightly with the background.

How to Make a Paper Boat

Last Updated: November 10, 2023 Fact Checked

This article was co-authored by Robert Homayoon . Robert Homayoon is an Origami Expert known for his engaging YouTube videos and accessible instructions. He has been teaching origami on YouTube since 2009. His channel has a following of over 676,000 subscribers, and his videos have garnered over 211 million views. Robert uses his channel to highlight his passion for teaching people origami, crafts, and how to solve puzzles. He graduated from SUNY Albany in 2007 and earned his D.M.D degree from Temple University Dental School in 2013.

This article has been fact-checked, ensuring the accuracy of any cited facts and confirming the authority of its sources. This article has been viewed 4,583,233 times.

Making an origami paper boat is a great activity that’s easy to finish and doesn’t require a lot of materials. The beauty of making a paper boat is that you only need one piece of printer paper to complete the task! By folding the paper with sharp creases and shaping it carefully, you can make a great-looking origami boat in minutes. We'll walk you through folding your own paper boat with our complete step-by-step instructions.

Creating the Initial Folds

Step 1 Fold an 8...

  • To strengthen the crease, run your finger down the fold 3-4 more times.
  • You should now have 2 creases along both centers (x-axis and y-axis) of the page.
  • Use the crease you made before to help line up the folds coming in from the corners.
  • The 2 folds should line up with each other.

Tip : When you go to fold the second side, use the first fold as a reference point.

  • The flaps closest to you should be folded in front of the back flaps, not over them. If you fold over the back flaps, you won’t be able to fold the back flaps themselves.

Making the Final Folds

  • Crease the paper along its edges so that it stays in the square shape.
  • The bottom of the diamond should be the part of the paper with extra folds.
  • The bottom corners will line up to become the bottom point of a square diamond.
  • You may need to pull up the triangle inside the diamond while pulling apart the two sides. Try to keep the triangle inside the diamond sticking straight up as this will be your boat's "mast."
  • You can reinforce the corners with clear tape and tape around the bottom to keep your boat dry.

Tip : Waterproof your boat! Use a waxed paper from an art store to make your boat last longer, or color one side of the paper completely with a crayon. You can also try to make your boat out of aluminum foil.

Expert Q&A

Robert Homayoon

  • If you are floating your boat on a large body of water, like a pond, you can tape string onto one end of the boat. Hold on to the other end of the string so that it doesn't float away! Thanks Helpful 312 Not Helpful 147
  • Try to get the edges of the paper to line up. An evenly made boat means less chances of tipping over. Thanks Helpful 59 Not Helpful 32
  • If you are making a tiny boat, don’t float it on a big body of water. You may lose it! Thanks Helpful 17 Not Helpful 11

Tips from our Readers

  • If you don't have specialty supplies like wax paper or crayons, no need to fret. You likely already have the tools to waterproof your delicate paper boat right at home. Simply construct two separate boats out of ordinary printer or construction paper. Then, gently place one inside the other, nesting them together into a double-walled vessel. This should reinforce them to better withstand water without getting too soggy. Though, test float gently, as the extra weight could cause sinking if the little boat gets overburdened.
  • Missing wax paper for true waterproofing? Simply equip your artist's toolkit by raiding the crayon bin! Thoroughly color one whole side of the boat with thick crayon before setting it afloat in a pool, pond or puddle. The waxy buildup should act as a shield against light water exposure. Though if embarking on choppier seas, extra reinforcements may still be needed, matey!
  • Forego the plain printer paper and opt for fun vibrant colors and patterns! Tissue paper can make for a festively hued sail, but be extra delicate as it shreds easily, especially once wet. For best durability, stick to construction paper or card stock to give your boat more sturdiness as you launch it into the open water.

  • Make sure you don't have any holes, as one little hole can turn into a huge rip. This could be good in a procedural text. Thanks Helpful 18 Not Helpful 3

About This Article

Robert Homayoon

If you want to make a paper boat, fold a piece of paper in half from top to bottom. Then, fold it again from side to side and unfold so you have a crease in the center. Fold the top right corner down towards the center. Next, flip the paper over and fold the other corner down on the other side. Fold each of the bottom edges of the paper up and outwards to make a paper hat shape. Then, open the hat and flatten it horizontally to create a diamond. Fold the bottom edge of the diamond upwards towards the top. Then, turn the paper over and repeat on the other side. Pull the paper apart again and smooth it out to create a boat shape.

A sailboat craft is a fun summer idea for kids. Take up a challenge and make one that’s floating or use paper for a simple one for preschoolers. We made a paper plate boat craft that combines a yarn sewing project with a free printable template.

If you don’t want to add the yarn threading step, you can use just one paper plate that you paint blue. Glue the boat as well as the sun directly on this plate.

With so many lakes in Minnesota, it’s so much fun to go for a stroll and admire the colorful boats. My youngest is puzzled that we don’t have a boat of our own. He loves water but my hubby and I are more of mountain people. So owing a boat has never been on our list.

This paper plate boat craft is probably what my son’s favorite boat would probably look like. White boat with red sails!

Step 1 : Paint the back of one paper plate. Use a darker shade of blue for the bottom and a light shade for the rest of the paper plate.

Step 2: Wait till the paint dries out completely. Cut out a center circle of the paper plate.

Step 3: Punch holes along the inner edge, but only the bottom that is painted in a darker shade of blue.

Step 4: Cut a strand of  blue yarn, thread it through a plastic yarn needle  and tie one end to the needle. Tape the other end of the yarn at the back of the paper plate. You can now start threading the yarn through the holes in the paper plate.

You can go through the holes one or several times. Keep on threading until you reach the end of your yarn. Secure the end of the yarn to the back of the paper plate with tape.

If you ran out of yarn before you could cover all the holes in your paper plate, cut another strand of yarn and repeat this step.

Step 5: Place the other plate right side up on the table and paint it following the same pattern as the first paper plate: darker shade of blue for the bottom and a light shade for the rest.

Making an Easy Origami Boat

sailboat paper craft

The Spruce Crafts / Chrissy Pk

  • Total Time: 10 mins

In Japanese, the word origami means "the art of folding paper," with ori meaning "folding" and kami meaning "paper." In modern usage, origami is an inclusive term for all paper folding practices. The goal when practicing origami is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.

Learn how to make the most well-known origami boat using this quick and easy step-by-step tutorial. The origami boat you'll make with these instructions can also float in water .

Watch Now: How to Make an Origami Boat

This origami boat is a great model to teach to kids. It's similar to the origami hat you make with newspaper or the origami crane many of us made as children. Also, origami can be a great math-related activity for kids, allowing them to create using geometry.

What You'll Need

  • 1 Rectangular sheet of paper

Instructions

Make the first folds.

Start with your rectangular paper , orienting it vertically, with the long edges going up and down. Fold the bottom half up to the top. Fold the bottom right corner to the left corner and make a small pinch, just enough to crease the paper. Open it back up.

Create a Triangle Shape

Fold the left and right bottom corners up and to the middle using the crease as a guide. Flatten the folded pieces down. Rotate the paper. Fold one layer from the bottom up along the bottom of the front flaps.

A Boat Begins to Take Shape

Flip the paper over to the other side. Fold the bottom edge up in the same way. Unfold, and then fold the bottom right corner along the crease you made. Repeat on the bottom left flap.

Form the Bottom of the Boat

Re-fold the bottom edge back up. Open the bottom of the model. Look at the corners. Flatten and then insert the overlapping flap on the left underneath the right section.

Continue Folding

Fold one layer up to the top. Repeat on the back. Open the bottom of the model.

Finalize the Folds

Pull apart the left and right flaps. Flatten your paper sculpture in the shape of a boat. Open it slightly. The triangle in the middle resembles a sail .

Building a sturdy paper sailboat requires some tips and tricks to ensure it stays intact during playtime or races. We will share some techniques that will help strengthen the boat’s structure and enhance its durability.

Besides the construction process, paper sailboats offer various opportunities for interactive and engaging play. We will explore different activities and games that can be enjoyed with your paper sailboat, including how to organize a sailboat race and other creative ideas to make the most out of your sailing experience.

So, let’s gather our materials and get ready to embark on a wonderful journey of making a sailboat out of paper!

1. Making paper sailboats maximizes creativity: With just a few simple folds and materials, you can create a mini sailboat that sparks imagination and fun. 2. Using sturdy paper for sailboat construction is essential: Opt for thicker, heavier paper to ensure a durable sailboat that can withstand floating in water or racing against others. 3. Personalizing your paper sailboat adds charm: Enhance your sailboat by adding colorful decorations, custom designs, and unique details, making it a reflection of your style and personality.

Materials Needed

To make a paper sailboat, you will need the following materials:

  • A sheet of sturdy, lightweight paper
  • Scissors for cutting and adjusting the shape
  • Markers or colored pencils for designs and colors
  • A ruler for straight lines and accurate measurements
  • Glue or tape for securing parts of the sailboat

Pro-tip: Consider using construction paper as it is more durable and less likely to tear, ensuring a longer playtime. Remember to be creative and have fun while making your sailboat!

What type of paper is best for making a paper sailboat?

The type of paper that is best for making a paper sailboat is crucial. When considering what type of paper to use, there are several options to choose from.

Construction paper is a sturdy choice that holds its shape well and can withstand exposure to water. Another option is cardstock , which is thicker and more durable than construction paper. This provides extra strength and reduces the likelihood of tearing or collapsing.

If you prefer a lighter and more delicate sailboat, origami paper is a good choice. It is lightweight and easy to fold.

Last but not least, for water resistance, it is a good idea to use water-resistant paper or coat regular paper with a waterproof sealant. This protects the sailboat from becoming soggy or falling apart when it comes into contact with water.

When choosing the paper for your project, it is important to consider the size and complexity of the sailboat design, as well as your personal preferences. Feel free to experiment with different types of paper to find the one that works best for you. Enjoy the process of creating your paper sailboat and let your creativity set sail!

Other materials required for building a paper sailboat

To build a paper sailboat, you will need various materials in addition to paper. Here is a list of the other materials required for building a paper sailboat:

  • Scissors : Use scissors to cut the paper into the desired shapes.
  • Glue or tape : Secure different parts of the sailboat together.
  • Ruler : Use a ruler to measure and create precise folds and cuts.
  • Pencil or pen : Use a pencil or pen to mark positions for folding and cutting.
  • Decorative materials : Personalize the sailboat using markers, crayons, stickers, or other decorations.
  • Optional : If you want a sturdy base, you can use a small piece of cardboard or foam board.
  • Optional : If you plan to float the sailboat on water, you can use waterproofing materials like wax or clear nail polish.

It’s important to note that these materials are just suggestions. Feel free to be creative and use whatever materials you have available to build your paper sailboat.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making a Paper Sailboat

Looking to set sail on a creative adventure? Get ready to embark on a step-by-step journey to making your very own paper sailboat. We’ll start by folding the base, then move on to crafting the hull. Next, we’ll add the mast and sail, giving our paper creation that true sailor’s touch . And finally, we’ll let our imagination run wild as we decorate and personalize our paper sailboat, making it a unique vessel of our own. Get your scissors ready, because it’s time to make waves with paper!

Step 1: Folding the base of the sailboat

To fold the base of the sailboat, follow these steps:

Step 1: Start with a square piece of paper.

Step 2: Place the paper in front of you with one corner pointing towards you.

Step 3: Fold the paper in half diagonally, bringing one corner to the opposite corner, and crease firmly.

Step 4: Unfold the paper and repeat the previous step with the other two corners, folding them to the opposite corners and creasing firmly.

Step 5: Next, fold the bottom corner up towards the center, aligning it with the middle crease.

Step 6: Fold the top corner down towards the center, overlapping the previous fold, and crease firmly.

Step 7: Flip the paper over and repeat steps 5 and 6 on the other side.

By following these steps, you have successfully folded the base of the sailboat. This forms the hull of the sailboat, providing stability for the rest of the construction process.

Step 2: Creating the hull of the sailboat

To create the hull of the sailboat, follow these steps:

Step 1: Take a rectangular piece of paper and place it in front of you.

Step 2: Fold the paper in half lengthwise, creating a center crease.

Step 3: Unfold the paper and fold the right and left edges towards the center crease.

Step 4: Flip the paper over and repeat the folding process on the other side, folding the right and left edges towards the center crease.

Step 5: Fold the bottom edge of the paper up towards the center, about two-thirds of the way.

Step 6: Flip the paper over and repeat the same folding process on the other side, folding the bottom edge up towards the center.

Step 7: Take the bottom corners of the paper and fold them towards the center, creating a triangular shape at the bottom of the hull.

Step 8: Flip the paper over and repeat the same folding process on the other side, folding the bottom corners towards the center.

Step 9: Gently push the sides of the hull inward, creating a more three-dimensional shape.

Step 10: Your paper sailboat hull is now complete!

Fact: The hull’s shape is crucial for the stability and maneuverability of the sailboat, enabling it to smoothly cut through the water and resist tipping over.

Step 3: Adding the mast and sail

Adding the mast and sail is a crucial step in building a paper sailboat. Follow these steps:

  • Take a 10-12 inch wooden or plastic dowel rod as the mast of your sailboat.
  • Insert one end of the dowel rod into the top of the folded triangle, ensuring it stands upright .
  • For step 3, create the sail by cutting a small square or rectangle out of decorative paper or fabric.
  • Attach the sail to the mast by gluing or taping one edge to the dowel rod.
  • Add extra decorations, like colorful patterns or stickers, to the sail or hull for customization .
  • Once the mast and sail are added, your paper sailboat is complete and ready to sail!

With the mast and sail in place, your paper sailboat is now ready to set sail and bring joy to your paper boat adventures.

Step 4: Decorate and personalize your paper sailboat

Step 4: Decorate and personalize your paper sailboat.

1. Choose colors: Use colorful markers, crayons, or colored pencils to add vibrant designs to your sailboat.

2. Add patterns and shapes: Use your artistic skills to draw patterns like stripes or polka dots, or add shapes such as stars or hearts to make your sailboat unique.

3. Write your name or initials: Personalize your sailboat by writing your name or initials on the hull or sail. This will make it easily identifiable and show ownership.

4. Decorate with stickers or washi tape: Enhance your paper sailboat’s appearance by adding stickers or washi tape with various designs, giving it an extra touch of style.

5. Use glitter or sequins: Add sparkle to your sailboat by gluing on glitter or sequins, creating a dazzling effect and making it stand out.

6. Experiment with different materials: Get creative and try using fabric, ribbons, or feathers to give your sailboat a unique texture or embellishment.

7. Apply a protective spray: If you plan to display or play with your sailboat outdoors, consider using a clear protective spray to prevent smudging or fading.

8. Show off your creation: Once you’ve finished decorating your paper sailboat, proudly display it on a shelf, use it as a centerpiece, or take it for a sail in a nearby water source.

I once decorated a paper sailboat with my younger brother for a school project. We used bright markers to draw colorful stripes and added our initials to the side. We incorporated stickers of sea creatures and small seashells. Our sailboat won the “ Most Creative ” award, and we were proud of our artistic efforts. It was a fun bonding experience that allowed us to express our creativity and showcase our unique style. Decorating and personalizing our paper sailboat made it feel special and added a personal touch to the project.

Tips and Tricks for Building a Sturdy Paper Sailboat

When constructing a sturdy paper sailboat, it’s important to follow these helpful tips and tricks:

  • Choose thick and durable paper such as construction paper or cardstock to ensure durability.
  • Begin by folding the paper in half lengthwise to create a strong foundation .
  • Achieve a pointed bow by folding the top corners of the paper down towards the center crease.
  • Fold the bottom of the paper up, meeting the bottom of the triangle formed.
  • Repeat the previous step on the opposite side for balance .
  • Fold the bottom corners of the paper upwards, meeting the centerline and forming a diamond shape .
  • To create a smaller triangle, fold the top point of the diamond downwards, meeting the bottom edge.
  • Repeat this process on the other side as well.

To enhance the sturdiness of the sailboat:

  • Apply glue or tape along the seams to securely hold them in place.
  • Smooth out any creases or wrinkles in the paper for a clean finish.
  • Allow the boat to fully dry before adding decorations or attempting to sail it.

By implementing these tips and tricks, you will construct a reliable paper sailboat that is ready to set sail!
