Canoe Making in the Sun

What do you do with all those Lactaid wrappers? Make them into canoes of course!

A while ago my dad started making canoes out of all of the Lactaid wrappers he uses. It was originally his idea, but he doesn't make any Instructables. It's really not a hard process, and Is fun to do with all the trash you have, I'm sure this can be applied to other wrappers, pieces of paper, etc. You guys are creative, come up with something.

Anyways enjoy the Instrutable

Step 1: Getting a Wrapper

Generally I use Lactaid wrappers. Start by putting it in your hand, and holding it. Simple enough, right?

Step 2: Folding the Wrapper

Fold the wrapper in half, make sure to fold perpendicular to the tear. If you do not, It will be quite hard to finish it. 

Step 3: Fold It in Half Again

Do it again, the same way.

Step 4: Fold It One Last Time

Just the same way, once more.

Step 5: Shape the Canoe

Stick one of your fingers in the middle; push the two sides apart. After you do that stick your thumb in the middle and push the sides together around your thumb. It should start to look like a canoe. Don't worry if it isn't perfect, it takes some time.

Step 6: You Have a Canoe!

Check It out man you made a canoe! Go put it out in the world, leave it at the dinner table. Put them in a glass of water, your bathtub, or the kitchen sink. Give them to your friends and family. They will all love it!
