It is called the "Io" and is designed by Nick Schade of Guillemot Kayaks. Nick offers the plans for free here, and has complete instructions on Instructables.com.
I am planning to use inexpensive luan plywood since this boat will not see hard use. The exterior will be sheathed 4oz fiberglass and I will use 2" tape for the interior seems. I think the seat will be a couple of layers of closed cell foam which should be sufficient for the sort of use this boat will see. I'm not sure about a paddle, but I may try and build a simple greenland style paddle or buy a small kids paddle.
Sara is very excited about this and has already name her boat "The Sara" ...very original :) She has also requested that it be painted red "like Grandpa's kayak."
