DAY FOURTEEN: make walnut boats together
One of the great things about the activity calendar is being able to move things around and add new things if I want to. These boats didn’t start in the original activity calendar but I discovered them on the Bristol Parenting Cafe blog and loved them. (http://bristolparentingcafe.blogspot.com) A great site for lots of family activity ideas.
1. Crack the walnuts in half and take out the nuts (and eat them!). That is the most difficult part!
2. Place a blob of plasticine / blu tac / playdough in the bottom of the shell
3. Run glue around the edge of the walnut shell and dip it into glitter.
4. Take a piece of paper (coloured paper, thick wrapping paper, paper bags) and cut into a sail shape. Thread this onto a cocktail stick or small straw.
