In celebration of moving into the second full month of summer, I’ve collected some lovely boat crafts for you to make and play with. Build them and set them free on your favorite creek, pond, stream, or puddle. Surely, the boats will lead your kids on wild, summer adventures! And, while you’re sailing the high seas with an imaginary crew, consider reading The Wind in The Willows together. The pages are filled with woodland critters on boats, which is part of why it is one of my favorite story books!
1. This Twig Boat (pictured above) is magical and fun!
2. A Cork Boat! Brilliant!
3. Nutshell Sailboats. Ariana makes her sweet boats with hickory nuts. I’ve seen them made with walnut shells as well.
4. These Milkweek Pod Boats that my daughter made in the spring!
5. Traditional Origami Boats with a how-to video in the post!
