Summer Activity For Kids – DIY Lemon Boats

| |

Looking for a way to use up your lemons to help with zero waste and sustainability? We have the perfect solution! These DIY Lemon Boats are such a fun summer activity for the kids and one they can help create and make their own!

Decorate the flags with markers, crayons or even stickers! Add favorite toys and action figures and let your kids imagination go wild! We love “racing” the boats and even taking the container outside to enjoy splashing the boats around in the water!
