Pirate themed day

Of course you all know International Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming up, don't you?  Oh, you don't!  Well it is on 19 September and I would hate for you to miss the fun so I am sharing what I am hoping to do for the day so you have time to prepare.

We will start the day with a craft project, making eyepatches and pirate hats from black cardboard.  Treasure maps will then be handed out with each child having a map to help them find their treasure.  Treasures will include little wooden doll pirates to match our pirate ship, chocolate, gold coins, candy jewellery, a wooden initial letter with a pirate on it and a toy.  The toys include a sticker book of pirates, a snap card game with pirates, a wallet with a boy pirate on it, a box of pirate puzzles and a nest of pirates (a manoushka doll style toy). 

After finding our treasures we will be playing outside on the treehouse pirate ship which will have a pirate flag on it and sharks circling between it and the "beach" between the mango trees.

When the pirates need some down time we will be viewing Pirates of Penzance, with Jon English and Simon Gallagher.  Or they can play with the new pirates and the pirate ship on a play mat I am going to make out of blue, green and yellow fabric.  Maybe they can make palm trees and hide a small treasure?!  Or play a pirate game that we already own?!

Are you planning anything?

Best wishes
Jen

  1. Not plans and my boys are a little old for it but I must tell the daughters. Their boys would LOVE some of those activities. You are very creative and motivated!
