Narnia and the North!

Narnia and the North!
Yesterday I asked the girls what they wanted to do afterlunch and Jenna said, "crafts" (of course). So we cut up acorrugated cardboard box and made ships. Emily's was the Dawntreader, Jenna wanted a princess figurehead and Kate had no opinion so we left the prow of her ship bare. We started out with the basic ship, which was justa flat bottom with two symmetrical sides. These were hot-glued to the bottom, meeting at the bow(front). If anyone is interested, here is the pattern - I thought I'dtrace it out and save it here in case we want to make theseagain - like if we ever did a nautical-themed birthdayparty. Two strips of cardboard were also glued across themiddle of the boat, each with a hole to support themast and sails. Next we added the figurehead and tail and a command bridge and helm (steering wheelthingy)- made with cardboard and toothpicks. The mast was made from a dowel and a popsicle stick.I'd have liked the masts to be taller but all we had werethese precut foot-long dowels.
