wooden ships and rhythm of the home

wooden ship- catamaran
The summer edition of Rhythm of the Home was just published today. This is their third edition, and it's chock full of summer pleasures: recipes, projects, articles and more!  When the heat sets in, we spend much of our time by the water. Our nearby lake, and the many creeks that surround us, offer cool refuge and endless opportunities for play. One of our favorite things to do  is construct boats from sticks or driftwood, so  Wooden Ships seemed like the perfect contribution to the play section of Rhythm of the Home. I've included instructions for several different varieties of sailing vessels... please go check it out right here!
