Boat sailing

Another site I'm loving at the moment is this really creative one.

You're invited to download the template of a paper boat and then personalise them yourself and send it back to the site.

And it's for a good cause. Here's the blurb from the site:

On the 30th January 2009, Joanne B Kaar and Lynn Taylor launched their paper boat project - a fundraiser for Mary-Ann's cottage,a living history museum in Caithness Scotland run by volunteers from The Caithness Heritage Trust (a registered Charity no: SCO 19998). As paper boats are sent to Joanne from around the globe, she will document them on this blog. The launch date and theme were inspired by the maiden voyage of the Westland Ship - 30th January 1879 (130 years ago) from Scotland to New Zealand. Mary-Ann's father, William Young was a member of the crew.

You've got until 10th August to send your boat in - if you make one, would you do me a favour and send me a pic of it. I'd love to put it up on this blog too!

I think this is a brilliant idea and one I will save up for the school holidays. It makes me feel slightly less hysterical than the advert for the TUTs Adventurers Club cruises where they promise that you can 'press the flesh' of your fellow travellers! I'm guessing that the TUT holidays are for those with stronger dispositions and no children in tow! (
