Argh Matey! Timber me britches and have ye land lubbers walk the plank! September 19 may be talk like a pirate day, but there is no reason to limit the fun to just one day of the year, that's what I say. There are few things in life that flare up a kid's imagination like old time pirates and the best way to get that imagination going is to help them make some pirate crafts for kids so they can really strut their cute little pirate faces off.
Even just an eye patch can often be enough to get them running around with their "ARS" and their "WALK THE PLANKS!" Let alone something like a Pirate mask or a pirate craft where they make their own parrot craft to perch on their shoulder. You pretty much have the makings for an awesome pirate Halloween costume right there. Just watch out for Ninjas!
This is a great treasure chest for your future pirate conquests. Find a cardboard or wooden box that has a lid. Paint box and lid inside and out, or cover and line with wallpaper. Make a paper pattern for handles (from picture above). Use this pattern for the hinges and fastener and then trace on material. For material, youc an use vinyl or leather or even crafts foam. Cut out and make holes with punch or nail. Attach handles and fastener catch with brass paper fasteners. Attach fastener to lid then hinge lid to back.
