Summer activity – P is for Pirate

When the temperatures are soaring and there’s sweat dripping everywhere, one of the best things you can do to cool down is to do any little craft activity with your kiddo.

Little A is fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates so it’s obvious that he will definitely request for a pirate mask.

It can be the highlight of the day around here so I am always on the look out for fun, easy and cheap activities to do… this has lead me to a new admiration for the humble paper plate!
With just a pack of cheap paper plates some glue, scissors a bit of paint and a few other bits you probably have around the house you and your kiddies can make just about any paper plate artwork.
