    Where I live, every summer, we have what they call the milk carton derby. All kinds of "boats" are made from various types and kinds of containers. mostly for milk, the most common being the typical 1 gallon plastic jug held together with the handyman's secret weapon, duct tape. I even saw a refrigerator box once which was simply covered with plastic garbage bags taped to keep the cardboard of the box dry. I'm sure you can come up with something, if you are really serious...

    Hey, why just kitchen materials when you get empty 55 gallon drums that are cleaned out to protect the aquatic life etc. seal up the bung-holes and strap 'em to 2x12's and plastic lawn chairs! What about truck inner tubes? You need floatation devices that can hold up you weight spread over a big area to give stability and buoyancy. Good luck!

    Well first of you'll need a washing up bottle, some sticky back plastic and a grown up to help you.

    Well, if you make yourself small enough you could take half an egg shell and a small spoon for an oar and see if that helps!!!!

    Well you have to use yoghurt, apples, cream, honey and treacle. Then simply take the first letter from each word.
