One of the first things we did was paint a few cardboard ships that we used to play with throughout the month. We also painted a play mat for the ships that looks like a sea with a few islands.
The kids loved making their own pirate costumes. We made these nifty headbands, awesome belts, and sharp swords! It is so fun to dress like a pirate!
For a quick snack one day we made a yummy pirate ship!
At the end of the month we made "ships" with sails and tried to race them using only wind power!!
