Avast me hearties!

This week’s storytime theme was pirates!  ARRRRRR!

I actually found so many pirate books that I wasn’t able to get through them all, so I’ll only post the ones I actually got to read.  I think I’m going to have to do another pirate storytime soon, just so I can do the books I didn’t get to this time.

 

Here goes:

This Little Pirate by Philemon Sturges

 

 

For our craft this week, we made sensory bottles filled with sand, seashells, gold glitter, baubles and a drop of blue food coloring added to the water.  The kids loved them.  And just to keep them busy while I was filling the water bottles with water, I had them glue on some feathers to a parrot I found here (I got the idea from the blog Sturdy for Common Things.)  I also googled “treasure map coloring sheet” and printed out a cute one, and gave the kids some pirate stickers to place on it.

This was such a blast, the kids loved it! If they were a little older, I may have been able to get them to wear eye patches, but I had a feeling they’d be a little too fussy for that.  Oh well, maybe next time!
