We were trying to wait until International talk like a pirate day, but September seemed so very far away and today was so gloomy that we decided to have a Pirate adventure!
We had a treasure map that led us to the island where we uncovered a chest filled with skeletons, chocolate coins, shiny beads, a goblet and a yukky squidgy skull
We were pretty hungry by this point, so we stopped for a bite to eat
Sausage and mash pirate ship and a broccoli boat
Then we ate a very yummy Pirate pudding
Mrs Armitage kindly donated the pirate napkins to us and everything we used on the day we already had in our Halloween box, our Christmas box or were free downloadable printouts online. I printed the signs for our pirate pudding from www.justsweetandsimple.blogspot.com
After dinner Thom went to the park to play on the pirate ship with Moo-Ma and Moo-Pa and then we played on our island
Our Pirate ship was made from a Morrisons banana box. We use these quite a bit on our themed days. Good old Morrisons!
But then our ship was overtaken by Old Captain Sea Dog and his band of pirates! Oh no! I mean, Shiver me timbers!
They made us walk the plank!
Luckily we didn’t visit Davy Jones’ Locker but swam safely to shore and cuddled up on the couch to watch The Pirates! Band of Misfits. What a grand great adventuaaarrr!
