About this activity: Build a boat to hold marbles

Little Scientists at home logo

We, at Little Scientists, had quite a bit of coloured tinfoil left over from the Easter eggs. And lots of very pretty boats started appearing. The designs varied, some of them floated whilst others didn’t. So we designed a challenge – build a boat from a piece of 30 cm by 30 cm tinfoil that can carry as many marbles as possible.
