Nature boats – Will yours float?

By The Aloha Team

Children Calvin and Eliza in the woods holding their nature crafted boats.

If you have access to a body of water – a lake, pond, river, or even a really big puddle – try making your own boat using only things found in nature (no glue, tape or other man-made materials). Then see if it stays afloat? What designs worked best? What didn’t work so well? Will you add a sail or any other special features? Try different designs on different days and see which one you like best.
