I love it when it comes together like this. His own plan, independently crafted, and tested!
My son took some scraps out of the recycle bin and gathered the materials he needed to make this:
Guest blogged by my Big Guy:
Mama, want to ask me what my inspiration was?
I made a boat out of cardboard, duct tape and two bottles. I made a boat called Motorboat Lightening. It was not that easy. It was kind of hard because I had to do all that in one day. I was going to use foam but I knew I couldn’t find any so I used a water bottle I drank in the car. It was an experiment. What things float and what things not. I got a big pool and filled it with water. Only 2 things sank and a whole bunch of other things floated. A toucan mask sank and so did a rat mask. All of the other things I put in there floated. My boat floated because it had 2 bottles underneath. I put tape so water wouldn’t come in the bottles. I three doubled it. I’m going to make something else, I don’t know what it’s going to be yet.
Edit from the Boy: “Never ever put a cardboard structure in the tub because it will dissolve.”
