How to Make A Moana Canoe in 15 Minutes

Okay, Today my 8 year old brought me this absolutely ADORABLE outrigger canoe that she made 100% by herself. It was tooo cute not to share:) Just to warn you- you’ll need to be in a tropical place to make this canoe.

One thing I love about our world schooling experience here in Vanuatu, is that there are so many opportunities for my children be creative. Emma did this whole project all by herself. The kids spend literally HOURS outside in the sunshine and with the absence of technology their imagination flourishes.

Today Emma was looking at the coconut trees and the dried up shriveled branches which would drop daily from the trees. In our backyard alone we have: Mango trees, Avocado Trees, Papaya Trees, Coconut Trees, Banana trees, Passion fruit vines, Watermelon and Cucumber and Pumpkin plants, peanuts, & potatoes.

It was literally so easy to grow things that all you had to do was throw the scraps in the compost pile and then just a few weeks later they would be flourishing plants.

Anyways, back to the tutorial. With these plants comes more opportunities for creating,  which is how Emma came to be making a Moana Canoe tutorial for everyone. It was extra fun because we are living in a tropical place so it’s special to be doing something tropical!
