Thanks to DisneyInfinity for sponsoring this post.

Being a pirate is a dangerous occupation and occasionally will require a quick exit.  Thankfully, you can create an escape raft to sail the bubbly bathtub seas.

This raft works great with the Disney Infinity action figures.  They are waterproof for play, but should ALWAYS be dry when placed on the game base.

What you'll need

  • 14 Craft Sticks - Tongue Depressor Size

2. Lay 10 crafts sticks side by side.  Place hot glue on 4 reinforcement sticks to run perpendicular on the underside to hold them together.

3. Using one piece of string attach the baggie (with the top folded under) to the base of the wooden raft like you would tie a package.

4. Time to play!

Raft will float and hold multiple passengers.  Over time, the craft sticks will get saturated and warp, but we found that it would hold together for at least one bath making it a special toy
