TP ROLL Pirate Craft

I first saw this cute Pirate craft on Pinterest.  You can find the Printable version for this craft at Story Time Crafts.  I just eyeballed the printable and drew it out on paper then cut it out. No printer ink here.

I ended up not using the shoes.  Okay so glue your pieces in place to the TP roll.  I wanted my sword to stand up . I cut a bendy straw and glue it to the back of the sword. Then I stapled the hands together in one spot. And there you have it. We colored the eye patch in with a black marker and I my little used his fingers to dab on red paint on the hat and cuff of the arm.  Argh Matey have fun with these we did.

Here are a few other pirate crafts you might like to check out!

However you choose to spend the day be sure and share some pirate lingo with your mate, or maybe a hunt for a treasure. It's bound to be a great time.  Here are a few pirate words to get you started.
