Yes yes yes… we have had walnut boats (click through to see that they do float!) before here on Red Ted Art.. but a child’s childhood can never have too many walnut boats. Surely?! They are easy peasy lemon squeasy to make and this time, I used up some multi coloured birthday candle left overs for that little bit of “something else”. Ta da… our walnut boats! (You can also use playdough or blutack to secure the masts, if you wish!!!!). (Check out the original walnut boats, for more detail on how to make them! Including tips on getting the walnut shell open in tact).
The children chose all the colours and we still had some pretty paper printed off from our Free Printables page! Oh and make sure the wax is FULLY cooled before playing.. we had some eager hands play quickly and the sail kept coming out.. not the end of the world, just frustrating!
Hooray for Walnuts. Hooray for Walnut Boats!
