Tinkering bark boats - and the maiden voyage!

building boats with bark, sticks and bits of cardboard - they took out the tools and just got on with it...

summer does mean there are lots of empty boxes of ice-cream to cut up and use as sails... no glue - hole ingenuity!

and of course decoration is a vital part of the process...
the boats ready to be tested on the lake...
but it was important to test the lake themselves before testing the boats...
they worked!! splash technique to make them move...
filling the sails with wind!!
pirate boats under attack from the shore (a row of stones) mud balls made to knock the attackers over....
