I was finishing up a bunch of projects for the craft fair coming up in a couple weeks when I decided to make a group picture. It wasn’t until I did that that I realized I had created an entire batch of Easter themed stuff!

I use food dye thinned with denatured alcohol to color most of my kids stuff, and the resulting pastels just shout Easter!

Thanks for looking.

Some neat things there!

I bet you PLAY with the little boats!

What do you use for the tubing? and how Big are they actually/

The alphabet “snake” is very neat.

Fair warning; I copy good ideas. Of course I do make my own designed version of them.

The boats are about 8” long. The “tubes” are 1/2” dowel for the jet drive, and 5/8” dowel for the exhaust stack.
1/2” hole bored into the stern about 1.5”, then a 1/2” hole bored down from the top of the deck to meet it at 90 degrees. The 5/8 stack goes through the cabin to meet the deck. A 3/16” hole is bored through the two dowels.

Copy away, I’ve been known to borrow an idea or two, adding a tweak of my own along the way.
