Build a stick ship

Build your boat from twigs and sail away.

Next time you’re in the woods, create your own pirate galleon or Viking longship.

  • Set sail through the trees
  • Create your ship using what you find on the forest floor
  • Keep your eyes peeled for buried treasure…

Make your own treasure map, and sail through the woods to where X marks the spot.
