Here are a few hints an tips on cardboard boat construction:
- During construction, consider how heavy the wet cardboard building materials will be. It’s better to design a boat that uses less cardboard.
- Cardboard can be found at recycling centers, appliance stores, department stores, discount clubs, electronic stores, etc.
- Care should be taken that construction does not include pointed objects and sharp edges that could injure anyone
