Talk Like A Pirate Day activities and crafts!

Painting Pirate Picture frames

Pirates were big on getting their pictures taken!

Pirate Day Walk (or...attempting to see if I can get my photos from my cell to Facebook to the blog!)

We found a fabulous Pirate Ship on our Treasure Walk!  We were beseagued by "Seals, Crabs, and Whales, and Sharks!  And oh lord!  Brusselly sprouts!  We're headed for brusselly sprouts!"  If it's one thing Pirates hated, it was 'brusselley sprouts'.

Captains Sadie and Aubrey take time away from a busy sailing day to have a bit of a sit in the fairy ring we found!  We also collected more acorns!  Now that's treasure worthy of a Pirate Captain!

Tomorrow it be TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY, arr arr arrrrrrr!

As ye all be knowing, September 19 be that most glorious of all celebrated days, a little something something I likes ta be calling "Talk Like A Pirate Day"!  'Tis a day when landlubbers, sprogs (aka: the kiddies), and the like can dress up in their pirate finest, sail the Seven Seas in search of treasure, and bellow "Aye Aye Cap't!", "Shiver me timbers!", and "Arrr, it be a fine day to be a pirate, eh, maties?!?!?" at the top of their lungs!

But at Puddles and Mud Childcare, is just one day of Pirate Joy enough?  Nay!  Belay that scurvy thought, my fellow sailors!  It be not!!  We be hoisting the flag on the mainsail for a week long affair!!  
We be having several Pirate Activities planned, Pirate Crafts galore, even Pirate Snacks (pirates be hungry little things, don't ya know)!  Also, we be having a special treat "Dora and the Pirate Pigs" DVD to watch!
