DIY cork boat

How to make a boat with corks?

Are you looking for a nice DIY idea to do with your child at home? If you have a few corks at home, why not turn them into a small boat sailing on the water? 🙂

I found this DIY idea on the blog of Mama Daddy Bubbaa blog where countless activities are offered to children.

To make this craft you will need materials that are easy to find at home. Here’s what you need:

  • 3 or 4 corks
  • 2 large rubber bands
  • 1 small wooden stick for the mast of the boat
  • 1 cardboard or rather a thick waterproof felt for the sails
