how to make a small "boat" using household materials to make it float in a kiddie pool?
for science we have to make a boat (doesn't necessarily have to look like a boat) using household items such as tupperware, wood, bubble wrap?, etc. and it has to be able to float in a kiddie size pool. the idea is for it to weigh as much as it can and still be able to float. how can i construct this "boat" and using what?
Egg cartons are really buoyant. They would be able to tolerate a lot of weight and float. Also sealed (empty of course) soda cans are really good. They act like a pontoon boat. Good Luck!

Soak the pots and soil.
Drain them till they are mostly done driping.
Take heavy plastic bags and set the pot in them - pull the top up to the base of the plant - loosly close with a twist tie or string. The key is Loose - not tight.
Put them in a bright - not direct sunlight spot and off you go.
The only thing you need to worry about is mold forming, but 6 weeks should be OK as long as the top allows for some venting, and they can still photosynthesize via the indirect, but bright light.
It's this, or get a kiddie-pool to put them in...
