Estimated Cost of This Project: Less than $5

The boat is 1.80 m long, not very beautiful, but lots of work and used a lot – I am happy about that. The anchor is still missing, no idea what to make it from.

It is only an old box, some old newspapers, tapioca starch, some tape, the spray cost 1 euro, the sail – a quarter, the mast is a present from the shop for fabrics – they have just finished a roll and I painted it red. Many of the parts I made out of broken toys etc. As I mentioned – we are in Thailand, things are cheap here.

    Love these! With kids as collaborators, the possibilities are endless, and can keep coming out of the same box! LOL
