Linger is a pygmy mouse

Build a canoe frame with twigs and sticky cobweb (thank Ixi the black widow spider for her strong rope).

Peel some sycamore bark from the sycamore tree and soak till soft and pliable.

Gather pine sap from the broken branch of a pine tree. Fill at least three acorn cups.

Gather one cup of acorn oil.

Chisel with teeth two hickory branch paddles, oil with acorn oil, and swaddle the handle in soft cobweb.

Wrap sycamore bark about the canoe frame. Let dry. Use the pine sap to seal the edges and give the canoe a waterproof coating.

Go explore!

This is a little critter invention, not for humans! Thanks to Pom!
