Cut a four oranges in half and then carefully scoop out the fruit (save this for a fruit salad or to snack on later). Make some instant JELLO according to the package instructions. In the orange halves place some canned mandarins (optional) and then carefully spoon in liquid JELLO mixture. Transfer these orange halves to the fridge to set. Once set cut them in half again to create 2 boats for each half. Decorate with toothpicks and colourful sails. I found the recipe here: http://www.annabelkarmel.com/recipes/jelly-boats.
Use slices of bell pepper, or celery or halved and seeded mini cucumbers as boats and fill with cream cheese or sour cream dip and then top with a toothpick and paper sail.

RELAX AND ENJOY SOME BOAT THEMED FOOD.
Double Stuffed Potato Boats:
Bake a potato and then when it is warm enough to touch cut it in half and scoop out some of the cooked potato, being careful to leave a shell behind for the boat. Mash the potato in a bowl and add your favourite mix-ins…sour cream, butter, shredded cheese, salt and pepper, crumbled bacon etc., and then scoop the mashed potato mixture back into the potato shell. Top with shredded cheese and then put these boats back into the oven under a broiler until the cheese melts (about 2 minutes).
Make your favourite tuna salad recipe and then spread on halved hot dog buns to create a fun boat for lunch. Add a cheese sail (a triangle slice of cheddar or another favourite type) or a toothpick and paper sail.

Make your favourite sugar cookie recipe and then use fun cookie cutters for some nautical treats. I found a sail boat and anchor cookie cutter. Have your kids decorate with those fun little tubes of drawing icing.
Deviled Egg Boats:
Hard-boil some eggs and carefully cut in half and then scoop out the yolk. Mash the yolk with mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt and add some mustard for flavour. Carefully spoon some yolk mixture back into the egg halves and then top with a tooth pick and paper sail.
