How to Make a Viking Longboat

The Vikings were good at making boats. Their dragonships and long boats had colourful, striking designs with intricate dragon heads mounted on the bow.

This one wouldn't fare so well at sea, but its easy to make with a bit of corrugated card and some felt tips. It comes complete with seats and oars so your little Vikings can paddle their way to battle.

Perfect as a school project!

Step 1

From corrugated card, use the diagram attached to cut:


One base


Two side pieces


Two head pieces


Two tail pieces


Two seat pieces


Eight oar pieces

Step 2

To construct the main body of the boat, fold the side pieces as shown in the diagram and use Duckling Tape to attach the side pieces together at each end. Then insert the base of the boat between the side pieces and tape along the bottom and sides using the tape.

Step 3

Use a craft knife to score the head and tail pieces along the line shown to create tabs. Glue the head pieces together leaving the tab unglued. Once dry, glue the tabs onto one end of the boat. Repeat for the tail piece.
