Ahoy Matey!

October 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

The 1st day of fall was a few weekends ago. My li'l pirates were running wild and we decided to have a Pirate Party. I had seen this interesting blog about kids activites and from there on the plan grew! My husband decided to jump on board and help and with his masterful skills, he soon made a beautiful ship...the kids helped with the maps and the paint. It was a lot of fun! We were all so involved making our creation, we forgot about our phones, our television and our laptops. It was the begining of a beautiful fall and a lot more creative projects...so WELCOME Aboard !

All the items used to make this were found lying around the house. The only thing we bought were the backdrop paper and the log paper the ship was covered with.

The ship was made with an empty cardboard television box!

The ship had a wheel inside to steer a tire hanging on the outside to serve as a life saving tube. My son drew the pirate skull flag and another flag of his imaginary island!

The sail was made from an old white sheet and the pole was a plastic pipe from an old plumbing issue we had. I used a styrofoam ball and painted it with gold and used it as the Anchor.  

The adorable parrot was part of the pirate gift set that my kids had bought at disney world. Our hats were made with black construction paper and my husband cut the tiny white skulls with paper and glued them on it.  Genius!

Another friend came along and she tied the red ribbon we found lying about the house around the kids waistband and we drew skulls with kohl pencil on the kids faces. No one wanted a moustache!

And we made treasure maps with paper dipped in cold tea leaves water by burning the edges with a candle flame; this was a tedious job.
