Place the (2) 6" large wedge shaped blocks on the table so they are on their sides. Their square ends 

will be touching.

They are placed so that one block has the angled side on the left hand side and the flat side on the right.

Then the other block is opposite as shown below.

Next we'll make the outrigger. Place (2) of the 4" small wedges flat on the table about 3-4" away from the

main part of the boat. You'll place them with the end together and so each block faces a different way as

with the first wedges you placed.

step 3 wooden buildinb blocks moana's boat


Lay (1) of the 6" square posts so it is on the table right next to the main part of the boat. It will be on the

same side as the outrigger.

Next we will make the part between the main hull and the outrigger. In Hawaii they call this the kapua'i.

Take the last (3)4" small wedges and place them on top of the 6" post. The large end of the wedge next

to the boat and the small pointed end rests on the outrigger. See photo below.

step 5 use kids wooden blocks to make moana's boat


Moana's boat had some cross pieces across the kapaui. Place  (2)6" square posts so they lay

across the wedge blocks you just placed.

Complete Moana's boat by adding the mast and sail. Place the last 6" post as the mast and then using

some paper cut a sail and don't forget Moana's symbol on it. Use a little tape to secure it to the  mast and

you're ready to sail off into adventure.
