    Sailboat Game


    1. Cut out and mount sailboats on lightweight cardboard.

    2. Punch hole where marked in top of each sail.

    3. To make racing lane, tie each end of heavy thread to separate chairs (see illustration). Repeat on other side of chairs to make racing lane for second boat.

    To Play

    1. Prepare each boat to start race by fastening safety pin through hole in top of sail and around thread. Boats should be barely touching START chair.

    2. Someone shouts, “Go,” and each player blows his sailboat to other end of thread. Player whose boat touches FINISH chair first wins.
