Grab 14 crafts sticks. Lay 7 of the craft sticks flat and glue the remaining 7, one each on top of the first 7. This will be the base of your canoe. Position the 7 craft sticks at an angle.
Put hot glue on another craft stick and press it down on one edge of the 7 you diagonally lined up. This will hold your base together. Before repeating this on the opposite side of the base, insert a craft stick in the center of the base with hot glue. Glue another craft stick on the opposite side of the canoe at the ends.
If you flip the canoe over you will see a gap on both ends where you connect the base. Glue an additional craft stick on both ends, making your base 9 crafts sticks wide.
Turn the canoe right side up. Start stacking the craft sticks, gluing into place. Alternate sides until you reach the desired height of your canoe.
Cut a triangle from cardstock and use a red sharpie or marker to draw the Moana symbol. Glue your flag to the mast of your canoe. Glue on decorative tropical flowers to brighten up your canoe. If you want to make some paddles you can cut the ends off of one craft stick and glue one each to the end of another craft stick.
