How to Make a Mayflower Walnut Boat

| More

I have a fun craft for you…. it is a Thanksgiving craft.  Today I’m going to show you how to make a Mayflower Walnut Boat.  This boat will actually float.  So, it is a craft that will not only be a ton of fun making, but will also be loads of fun playing with.  You will need a bit of help from an adult.  Have an adult break open the walnut with a nutcracker.  It needs to be broken in half…. not crushed.  So, an adult will be able to help you with this.  Let’s get started with this fun craft…. grab the materials needed and we will get to it.
