A easy fun project perhaps with older kids.
Step 1: What You Need.
7. Hot glue gun (alternative candle wax)
Step 2: Open the Nuts
I used a knife to open the nuts. With a nutcracker you would destroy the shell.
But be careful not to cut yourself.
Step 3: Cutting Masts
I used toothpicks as masts. They had to be shortened a bit.
Step 4: Glue Masts Into Shell
Glue mast into the shell with hot glue or candle wax. Candle wax sets a bit faster. So I used it later on.
Fill the shell half to three-quarter.
Step 5: Cut Sails From Paper
Start with simple sails like triangular and rectangular shapes. Glue them with glue to the masts and give them a sail shape with your fingers. Go as fancy as you like.
