A few weeks ago a friend handed me a container of walnut shells to make boats for Eleanor. I do love me a walnut boat of the traditional variety, but this time I decided to up the ante a little. I think The Borrowers would really like these boats, don't you?
I imagine this would be a fun activity at a birthday party too. For a nautical theme perhaps, or even a fairy theme (what fairy wouldn't want one of these boats?!). The partygoers could race them once they finished decorating them, and then they would make cute take home favours. Which practically makes these the moat ultimate party activity ever, now that I think about it. Also, completely free (apart from basic supplies you probably already have in your craft cupboard). You're welcome.
Other materials I used: glitter, lace tape, fabric, scrap book paper (both used to line the boats), kraft paper, twine, ribbon, and of course - paint.
Back tomorrow with more Blog Birthday goodness. x
