Nature Boats

Fun nature findings to build with.
How cool is this pile of nature gems! Sticks, petals, leaves, dried grasses, and bark. Throw in a little glue and some craft feathers and cork and we were ready to build our nature boats. All the kids had a blast. There were some very creative boats and little boat people. Next week we will see how they do in the water but until then they make pretty spring decorations.
Thanks Jenny for getting this together. We are looking forward to next week's sailing event!

Paige and Ethan were really getting into their construction.

Paige and her finished boat.

Lindy my little glue loving girl, looks way too excited to have 5 bottles of craft glue within her reach.

So nice to see Ethan getting into a project.

Erin also worked really hard and loved using the flowers.
