ok so i'm not that much of a history buff,
as i was making these and thinking
the nina, the pinta and the santa maria,
but no it's the MAYFLOWER boats that we need to concentrate on this month for upcoming turkey day.
but how difficult would it be to recreate a Mayflower boat?
why it's not hard at all-check it out:
spray paint the outside only of your boat unless you like poisoned spray painted food. i put it on top of a cup and painted it that way. wrap a tiny rubber band around the stick which you can get here, and pull it to the top leaving about 1/2 inch from the ball. after you cut your cardstock sail, pull it thru the stick and then wrap another tiny rubber band to the bottom of the stick and pull it up to meet hold the bottom of the sail so the sail keeps its curved shape. goodness i hope you got all that.
you can now wrap some foil to the end of the stick, push it thru a spool, and glue as shown.
i also made the flag printables here and then used double stick tape to put them on sails.
and the candy?
i got the white ones from walmart and the pumpkin pie ones from cracker barrel.
and well, you know i can't just leave things well enough alone so i grabbed some food markers
and made some pilgrims out of them.
oh that explains why some of them looked water logged
(dumb food marker!)
uh oh. they look like they have more trouble though, as history states that mayflower trip was a cruel one.
i didn't know indians had a boat of their own?!??!
and i think they are gonna give the pilgrims some corn and show them how to cook a turkey right?
let's see what they brought for the poor tired, soaking wet, starving pilgrims.
why of course!
chocolate always saves the day!
so that folks is the real story of how
national chocolate day thanksgiving began cuz we all know you need some kinda appetizer before a big meal right?
