We can't get enough of this clever idea for making homemade nut sailboats featured on Crow Roosters Crow! Mom Ariana says that after the squirrels and chipmunks had helped themselves to a nutty backyard feast, there was plenty of shells leftover for crafting — and what better use than to turn them into these sweet little sailors?
To make your own mini tall ships, you'll want to have broken nutshells on hand (hickory nuts and walnuts work well), along with some colorful patterned paper, toothpicks, glue, scissors, and melted wax for keeping your sails posted. Check out Ariana's tutorial for the full scoop — this is one project that's sure to keep your own sailors happy throughout the warm months!
