We have a stream by our house. We also have grandchildren. Perfect. If you've tried the plastic boats (bathtub toys) at your local stream and have watched them overturn and float upside-down only to get caught in the willows overhanging the water-you know where I'm coming from. Yes, these paper boats are fragile, depending on the "paper" one uses to make them (the book is equipped with water resistant templates), but they're also very stream-worthy. Making them is education, sailing them is fun, finding them several hundred yards downstream is treacherous. Yo Pops and/or Gramps, great fun here.
