Cardboard Titanic

Sharing is caring!

As a family, we decided that we were going to make memories this summer. You know, because what makes vacation more relaxing than filling up your whole schedule?

We signed the kids up for a local contest. The rules were simple. Create a two person boat out of only cardboard and tape. What they forget to tell you is that you are required to have a degree in engineering, and dabbled in a bit of rocket science to pull it off.

After scouring town for piles of cardboard, and emptying out the stores supply of duct tape, we were on our way to success! Six hours and umpteen paper cuts later, we have something that resembles a boat.

Today was her maiden voyage.

I just want everyone to know that the kids are very proud of their Titanic award. The boat sank as soon as they stepped inside.

After that,  I need a cup of coffee.

This is our big creative fail of the week.  What’s something you have completely botched,  but are able to laugh about?

  1. Oh man … I’ve been volunteering in an orphan for nearly 3 years, it was a different fail every weekend. Once we tried to make a masking-tape maze for the kids and then we couldn’t remove it. I enjoyed your stories very much, hope you can visit me so you’ll laugh with mine 😀

    We’ve done this before. It’s a lot of fun! I think we’re probably due a good cardboard boating adventure in our family!
