Make these fun boats you can race, all you need is a few basic supplies that most everyone has laying around the house:
a couple of wine corks
colorful paper (i used some origami paper)
screws (for the keels)
a serrated knife or small hand saw
blow dryer or fan (to set sail!)
Step one: cut the cork in half lengthwise. (and a little video tip on how i did it:)
Step 2: insert a screw to serve as the keel near one end of the halved cork (on the rounded side)
you can also use a screw driver to make it a little easier.
Step 3: Cut colorful paper into small triangles and impale them onto the toothpicks.
Step 4: Stick the toothpick into the flat side of the cork and you have made yourself a cork boat! Now time to set sail!
