The first steps are the same for the Viking longship but we need to choose a milk bottle which isn’t too big or the card sides will be too small in comparison.
The foam block is positioned inside the hull and the pastic straw is positioned as with the roller version of the longship.
The card sides should be coloured appropriately and the figurehead added. The the card must be laminated to make it waterproof!
The ends are stapled as before to allow the middle parts to be opened out to fit around the milk carton hull. A hole punch strong enough to punch through the plastic milk carton is used to make 4 holes as high up as possible in the plastic hull. Paper fasteners are used as before to hold the sides in place through the punched holes in the hull.
The longship can be made more stable by placing some weights (ballast) in the hull. Plasticine is best for this job!
If you make a longship then send in your pictures and I’ll post them on this page!
