Step 1

Make a Basket Shape

how_to_make_papaper_plate_boat_Noah

Don't worry you won't be making a basket - this is a paper plate boat guide. But you will be cutting a paper plate so that it'll look like a basket initially. Prepare to fold the paper plate in half.

After folding the paper plate in half, draw the dashed lines on your paper plate. And get your scissors!

Then cut along the marks you made.

As you can see, there is a semi-circle hole in your paper plate and it's symmetrical. Good job, now it's time for some painting.

Step 2

Paint a Rainbow

Paint the outer edges of the upper part with red, orange, and yellow.

Then paint it with green,blue and violet. Make sure that the thickness of each color is the same. Good job so far!

Step 3

Make Noah's Ark

Unfold it. And there you have it a paper plate in the shape of an ark. Good job! You still need to do work though.

Step 4

Paint the Paper Plate Boat

Get your brown poster paint and brush. A bigger brush is preferable in this case.

Now, paint the paper plate brown evenly.

And with the use of your black marker, make outlines. Use the paint to make the window and three circular holes in the middle. You could go with your own designs with this step.

Then glue the ship into the previous paper plate. This is what it should look like right now.

And then get your assorted colored papers. When making the origamis make sure to draw some details into each animal.
