DS8 really wanted to make a reed boat, as shown in
Ancient Egypt Make it Work (a TOG scheduled book).
We found a bag of dried grasses at the craft store and some yarn
in my collection of unfinished projects.
Cutting the reeds and tying them in bundles took quite awhile.
DD14 came to help and the work went much faster.
And the boat turned out just like in the book!
He made a little paddle from craft sticks to go with it.
Don't you just want to hop on?
Maybe not hop...that would probably capsize the boat!
