Crafting with my Kids: Cork and Walnut Boats
Ever since I saw Jonah Lisa’s cork boat tutorial, it has been on our summer bucket list. Eager to fit in one last summerish project, we spent the morning making these little boats and brought them down to our neighbourhood beach for a test run. We live about 3 km from the water so it’s an easy outing.
I was hoping they would float (they did).
We repurposed a couple of plastic produce baskets to carry the boats. I always find it intriguing how children enjoy a “carrying case”.
We also made a flotilla of walnut boats. Made by Joel posted a tutorial here and the washi tape idea is inspired by Hip Hip Hooray’s take here. Really easy, but lit candles are involved. Lily loves eating walnuts so she was especially interested in this project.
School starts tomorrow and new routines to implement (sigh). Wishing you a great week,
