How can I make a "sailboat" with a laundry basket & a sheet?

Today my 4yo DS is determined to make a sailboat using a laundry basket. I was thinking I could make the sail out of a bed sheet, but I'm not really sure how to go about it. I tried to search for ideas, but I cannot find anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Plastic or wicker basket?

  • I'm not very creative so not sure this is going to be much help, but can you wrap the sheet around a clothes hangar and then tie the edges of the sheet to the laundry basket?

  • Plastic.

    I was thinking about hanging a sheet from a plant hanger on the ceiling, but then it'd be stationery.

  • How did it go? Did you make the boat?
