Crafting with Daddy: wine cork sail boats


Jesse has been saving wine corks for weeks now so that he could use them for crafts with the kids. He wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted to do, so he just kept saving up the corks. Today he made the girls wine cork sail boats!

From what I can tell, he got the idea from a blog post at Mama.Papa.Bubba. After I helped him with the supplies, he sat down with Claire and got to work. All they needed were wine corks, rubber bands, wooden skewer sticks, and construction paper.

Before long, they had made two very cute sail boats! The kids were delighted! We filled a basin up with water and let the girls play with their boats in the garden. They happily splashed around for a good hour or so before dinner. Win!

Jesse totally took me by surprise with this craft idea. It was a great little project for him to do with the kids, and they loved playing with their wine cork sail boats! I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
