A few months back, when visiting friends, we were introduced to these little cork boats. Our friend brought his on a little visit to their creek. My daughter was captivated and loved to watch it sail downstream and has talked about it many times since. We finally got around to making ours a few weeks back. All it took was a little glue gun, some corks and string. I really don’t know why I put it off for so long! But the boats are so sweet and truly loved. After any rain we happily trudge down the hill with our rain gear and boats looking for good puddles to sail in (we have a drainage problem here so there are plenty of puddles!). My littlest daughter has a little boat also (minus the sail) and it seems to be so sturdy as it is dragged along the path, often with her ahead of it in the puddle!
