While we were in Kentucky over summer break Mike and I had decided to take the kids to a creek not far from the house (one which we had been to before) and we decided we should make boats for the kids to race on the little rapids. You know, get back to some real unplugged childhood fun, the kind we had growing up.
So, when you are dating someone who is probably more creative than you (and loves to do DIY projects), then a simple boat with a block of wood and a sail suddenly becomes an actual project, that takes hours to build and requires a trip to a hardware store and craft store ... but these boats will last a long time and the best part is that Flynn was taught how to use a few power tools and was able to help build the boats.
This tutorial is going to be very photo heavy as I wasn't involved in the design or construction. I simply tagged along for the shopping and glued fabric to the wood sails. I know, some DIY'er I turned out to be. But I just wanted the boys to do their thing with this one without my interference.
