I was so pleased when my daughter said she didn’t want to go to her school dress up day as a princess, but she wanted to be a pirate instead. Pirates are just much more fun. Unfortunately, she decided she wanted to be a pirate at 8.05 on the day of the dress up. Considering we have to leave at 8.30 at the very latest there wasn’t much time to cobble together a costume. Luckily we had made one they year before so we had a lot of the things. So we used a spotty headscarf, a stripy t-shirt and leggings or a skirt. Easy. Finish off with an eye patch and any other pirate accessories you have in the dressing up box.
Anyway – I have lots of pirate posts to put up over the next few days. Come back for how to make a treasure chest, pirate cakes and biscuits and lots more swashbuckling fun!
