With the delicious weather we have been having, the girls and I were inspired to make these little bark boats.
Quick to make and fun to play with!
To create you will need
Corks (with a long cold winter behind me, it seems I had plenty of these around ; )
Fabric for your sail
~ To begin ~
Gather your bark from a no longer living tree.
Glue your corks together and add your eye hook.
Cut and glue your sail to your twig.
Glue your bark to the corks.
Poke a hole in your bark and glue in your sail.
Cut a long piece of fishing line and tie it on to your eye hook.
Tie the other end to a thumbtack and attach to a single cork.
Wrap the line around your cork to keep it from getting all tangled.
Head to the water...
and set sail!!
Here's to spring & sunshine!
