The most recent issue of MAKE Magazine includes a brief comic strip on how to make a submarine using a couple leftover water bottles. The bottom of one bottle gets modified into a rather large prop while the other bottle serves as the fuselage (is that the right word for a submarine?). A paper clip, a couple rubberbands, and a paint stir-stick round out the parts needed to build this little thing.
Its really too simple to bother with blow-by-blow instructions.... If you can't figure it out, then buy the magazine ;-P. The kids and I had fun with it and here are the results in video. Enjoy!
