Nature Crafts: Bark Boat

Bark Boat

 

Oh, there’s something wondrous about floating homemade boats in a babbling brook.  It’s as easy as finding a nice piece of floatable bark and attaching a sail by making a small hole in the centre (with a screwdriver or drill) or using blue tack or glue.  Below are links to a few different ways to put them together:

1. Twig and Toadstool

This one from Twig and Toadstool has added buoyancy with corks underneath.
