My boys love playing pirate games. I surprised them with a pirate pretend play set up.
We used Safari Ltd. replicas, and added some of our wooden blocks (for planks and additional pirate ships) and blue felt (to be the ocean).
We had all the requirements for pirate play:
Pirate Pretend Play
Meet our cast of characters :
We used our pirate raft and made additional boats from wooden blocks. Our ships were fully loaded with cannons and cannon balls. Pirates lept from raft to boat, boarding each others’ vessels and plundering as they went.
Walk the Plank
Wooden blocks naturally became planks, and our pirates walked the planks again and again (using yelling “Arrr!” even as they fell).
The treasure chest opens and closes. We hid it under blocks, pirates looked for it, opened it with their axes, and hid it again.
