>Rafting can be a lot of fun. If you have the supplies and adult help, you can make a raft big enough for you and a friend. Or, make a small one by gluing popsicle sticks together to make a toy raft for the bathtub.
Safety First: Don’t forget to check for water hazards (rocks, rapids, waterfalls), your lifejacket and a paddle! Also make sure an adult knows where you are going.
Make this a family activity: Get your family to work together to build a raft and test it out.
This activity promotes learning about buoyancy as well as math and carpentry skills.
