Bark boats are a free summer learning activity to do with kids.
- glue gun
- fishing line
- eye hook
- thumb tack
- fabric (for sail)
Here's how to make it:
- Gather your bark from a living tree.
- Glue corks together and add eye hook. Cut and glue sail to the twig.
- Glue your bark to the corks. Poke a hole in your bark and glue in your sail.
- Get a long piece of fishing line and tie to your eye hook. Tie the other end to a thumbtack and attach a cork. Wrap the line around your cork to keep from getting it tangled.
Head to the water and sail!
