The Curious George books are one of Daniel's favorite series. So after reading "Curious George Rides a Bike," we decided to make our own paper boats like George does in the book. We used paper from a magazine instead of newspaper. Newspaper wasn't holding up well enough.
Then launched our own little fleet into the baby pool. And they did indeed float!
It wasn't long before the army guys made their way into the boats. Unfortunately they didn't last more than 10 minutes, then sunk to their death. But it was a fun 10 minutes :)
