Paddlin' a River Raft


                                                              Drift dreamily down a river with a person on a raft....

To make this craft project you will need craft sticks, tape, a q-tip, and pipe cleaners. 

To begin- create the raft. Take a number of craft sticks and lay them one next to the other and tape them in place. The more you tape together, the larger your raft will be. 

Next create the figure for your raft. Next take a pipe cleaner, any color, and twist the middle into a loop- this will be your figure's head. 

Wrap the pipe cleaner ends over each other a couple times to create a braided middle under the loop and then separate the ends to form two legs of a triangle. 

These ends will be your figure's legs. 

Bend the very end of these up to create feet. 

Next take another pipe cleaner and cut it in half. Twist one half around the middle of your figure's body- leaving the two ends sticking out to form arms. 

Secure a q-tip in one of the arms/hands and your figure now has a paddle and is ready to go exploring!
