My Little Walnut Boat


I love vintage children’s books with ideas of things to do. When my kids were little, we would actually make all these crafts, and they were adorable.

Recently I came across directions to make a “Walnut Fleet,” with walnut shells serving as a boat, a toothpick with a small sign as the sail, and  “cute little passengers” made from matches. The instructions are  charming: “Any child would love to play with these bathtub boats,” it says.

Doesn’t that make you want to sit down and make them, even if you have no tiny children in your home?
