The Indoor Raft!

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


The young people test their knot skills by making a raft out of cheap food items and sweet 'string'.


Mini Swiss Rolls
Strawberry Laces or Cooked Spaghetti
Bread Sticks


Using the bread sticks, make a frame to support the barrel (swiss roll). Use Square Lashings to make the frame then attach the barrel afterwards using other knots the leader/young people can think of to make the neatest/smartest raft.

This will test their knot knowledge and team work whilst working with small objects
