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.
2. A Mother’s Ramblings
Bark and Blu-tack. Awesome. Tutorial and cute video here.
3. Rhythm of the Home
4. Make and Takes
Sticks and hemp cord is all you need. Tutorial here.
Next time you’re out and about near a stream, make a bark boat to add to your adventure.
