So many pirate crafts and activities for you to try with the kids!
Pirate Galleon Craft
I cut out all the basic pieces of a pirate boat from cardstock – sails, hull, masts, portholes and of course a pirate flag. I glued the hull and masts to some blue construction paper then added glue dots where the other pieces should go.
Then F completed the picture.
I cut out a sword shape from some very thick cardboard.
I then wrapped the blade end of the sword in kitchen foil and wrapped coloured tape around the handle of the sword.
I made this printable pirate hat from Ziggity Zoom for F. Very easy!
Pirate Discovery Bin
I put the sword, hat and assorted pirate-themed accessories into a container.
F was very intrigued by the items and I told him what they all were as he took them out. He even wore the hat for a nanosecond!
