Instructions

  1. Make a photocopy of the sailing ship and other figures. (Do not cut out the ship.) Color the figures as desired.
  2. Make the cross red and the water and sky blue.
  3. Tape the two ship printouts together, making sure the sail lines come together.
  4. Outline the entire picture with black marker.
