A few weeks ago the youngest of the twin monkeys went to his eye appointment. At the appointment the doctor confirmed that one of his eyes was working harder than the other. So the wee guy has to wear an eye patch for a few hours a day for the next few months.
I have to admit, I thought this was going to be a nightmare. How on earth was I going to get him to wear this every day without ripping it off. I was worrying for no reason. The brave wee guy instead thought the eye patch was the best thing every. Why? Because it makes him look like a pirate!
So when I was asked to review The Pirate Craft Cook from Laura Minter and Tia Williams, I was thrilled. Perfect timing seeing as I am living with my very own little pirate.
Premise – The Pirate Craft Book
This book is filled with great pirate craft activities. There is everything your little one could need in this book, you can make a pirate ship cake, treasure map, cutlass and belt. You can even make Buccaneer Boots which the boys are hugely impressed with.
I have to say there is one particular craft that we have to try out though. Building a pirate ship from cardboard boxes. We move house in two months, so I think we will have plenty of boxes, I could see me making one each for them! Don’t worry I will share it on the blog!
There is so much to do in this craft book, you can look like a pirate and have all the kit that you need.
D: “I am so excited to move to London and have my very own pirate ship. I want to paint it purple”
L: “I like the cake, can we make the cake?”
I love this book, it is such a fab idea and gives me plenty of ideas for things to do with the boys over the next few months. We may have to have a pirate themed birthday party!
