Jake's scout troop raced boats they designed a few weeks ago for the annual Raingutter Regatta.
Jake decided on a pirate ship design. I used my Silhouette to cut out the skulls and flag for him. I LOVE that awesome machine :)
He painted his boat black and used a dowel to hang the flag. For the flag, we used card stock and wrapped the vinyl flag around to make it more stable.
Then Jake added a lego piece and it was finished. One of the fastest craft projects on record.
They used straws to move their boats a little closer to the finish line. It was also great that it was a windy day.
They ended the scouting year with an awards ceremony, dinner and lots of treats.
Have a GREAT weekend!
