Alphabet Wall: Making…Y for Yacht

Y is for Yellow Yacht! I was so pleased to find everything in shades of yellow in the art drawer, for this craft. 🙂

You will need the following materials: Yellow and blue construction paper, yellow tissue paper, yellow crepe paper, white artblock sheet, ice cream sticks, scissors, glue.

1. Cut out the following to make up the parts of the yacht: sails from the tissue paper, an uppercase letter Y from the crepe paper, the base of the yacht from the yellow construction paper, and a wavy sheet from the blue construction paper for the sea.

2. Paste the blue sea onto the artblock sheet.

3. Next, paste the base of the yacht. Follow with the sails.

4. Paste on the letter Y.
5. Apply glue following the writing strokes of the letter Y. Paste on the ice cream sticks.  (Whereas DD pasted the sails first, DS chose to paste the sails on last.  I used this picture to show that the order of pasting really doesn’t matter too much. What’s important is that they remember the letter.)
