foil boats

We got Curious George Rides a Bike at the library. 
Jimmy was intrigued by the paper boat making.
On Sesame Street, Murray and a bunch of kids make boats out of tin foil and test how strong the designs are.  
So we combined the two things.  
We added anchors with rocks inside them so they would sink and Jimmy thought that was the funnest. 
Originally, we put them in our little kiddie pool and tested how many rocks they could hold before they sank.
Those ones got left in the water and sort of rusted, so Jimmy insisted we make new "better" ones to take in the bath.   I am now trying to see how long I have to wait before my kids forget about them and I can throw them away.  But they were great while they lasted.
