1. Cereal box viking helmet
What better way to really enjoy your crafting process than to upcycle something while you’re at it? Kix Cereal happens to agree! They’ll show you how to turn regular cardboard pieces from an ordinary cereal box into a mock viking helmet that’s perfect for sailing a pretend longboat.
2. Juice carton viking ship
Are you fresh out of empty cereal boxes but you’re still love to get your kids crafting with readily available kitchen supplies? Then grab your nearest empty juice carton instead! We adore this easily made longboat by Happy Brown House because the juice carton does all the hard work by giving you the shape and you can simply help your kids embellish their boat however they please!
3. Water bottle viking boat
Do you like the idea of helping your kids make their own viking longboat but you’d prefer to help them make one that will actually float, rather than getting soggy and sinking like the one above would? Then try following in Mama’s Kram‘s foosteps and making he base of your boat out of empty plastic water bottles instead!
