Launching Papier-Mâché Boats in the Lake
The beautiful boats are shaped in wire netting. The hull is clad with blank newspaper and VTR adhesive, and finally straw silk paper. Most importantly, the boats are coated with Paverpol, so they are water resistant. The older children from “Nørager Kindergarten” have tested this project. Help from adults is necessary for the shaping of the boats’ hulls and the chosen paper should not be too thick. We recommend blank newspaper. For decoration; add coloured paper or paint the boats. Coating with Paverpol is important to make the boats seaworthy. Adult help is required for this task because Paverpol sculptural glue is tricky for young children to spread evenly on the entire boat. School children will need less supervision for this activity. The fun part is the launching of the small boats. This is a wonderful outdoor activity - especially on a hot summer day.
