The August BabbaBox that arrived last week was focused on a Reduce, Reuse, Recycle theme and included the book Look Out for Litter by Lisa Bullard along with several activities focused on creating and crafting with recycled materials. My son's absolute favorite activity from this month's box was making our own recycled paper.
As we got started reading Look Out for Litter we just knew we needed to do some pirate crafts and activities along with it!! Lastly, my son worked with his dad to create a masterpiece on a piece of recycled art paper and then they cut his masterpiece into sails and stuck them onto the skewers. Telescopes are a go-to craft project for the kids at our house because we almost always have some sort of roll lying around (toilet paper or paper towel).
For this craft you just cover the paper towel roll with colored paper, tape it in place, cover it with stickers and other creations, add some holes to the ends of the roll, and loop some string through to make a simple telescope that can hang around your neck.
First my son sketched out what he wanted his treasure map to look like with paper and pencil. We were going to stick the "X" on the large island but at the last second we decided to cut out another mini island out of a lighter green felt (we didn't have anymore of the dark green) and put the treasure on the small island. Next the kids used some jewel stickers to show that there is lots of treasure where "X" marks the spot.
We cut out a square piece of self-adhesive black felt out and added a skull and bones sticker to make a pirate flag. While we were waiting for our pirate ships to dry, I took our pirate stickers and stuck it to the sticky side of the black self-adhesive felt and cut it out.
I put small binder clips on the bottom of our pirate sticker men so they could easily stand up.


For your next pirate bash, make your very own mini ships as table decoration or even as placecard holders with this fun recycle project from Kaboose!
The only data that the torrent holds is information about the location(s) of numerous pieces in the file. Excellent way of telling, and good paragraph to take data about my presentation subject matter, which i am going to present in college. Turn an empty milk carton, egg carton, straws and other recyclables into a cool pirate ship. Kids will always be fascinated with boats and pirate ships in particular, so to build a pirate ship for kids can be a real thrill. For this project, you will need an empty 1-1.5 L soda bottle, an empty milk carton, two plastic straws, a cut-out cone from an empty egg carton, a cup of sand, scissors, a popsicle stick, a sheet of a paper, and watercolor paint. To make the body of the pirate ship, cut out a rectangular hole from the side of the soda bottle.
To build a pirate ship for kids from a milk carton, you will need two milk cartons, two straws, clay, construction paper (three colors), scissors, paste, glue, tape and markers. The activity involved a lot of paper ripping and I was certain he wouldn't have the stamina to finish the project, but he did! Look out for Litter is an adorable book about a girl named Trina who hunts for litter in her pirate ship and teaches kids about litter, the problem with litter, and how to help make the earth cleaner! I am having a look ahead on your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the dangle of it! Just the thought of ocean voyages, treasure maps, gold coins spilling out of treasure chests, and scary pirates gives them a sense of adventure.


The size of the holes should be big enough to accommodate the two straws but small enough for them to be secure in place. Take another sheet of construction paper, preferably of a different color, and wrap or cover the upper portion of the milk carton.
The picture book is broken down into three simple chapters and is chock full of information and little tips! Once your telescope is created you can head outside and start hunting for litter around your neighborhood!
I moderate each comment, so you won't see your comment show up immediately when you post. Next, cut the bottom portion of the milk carton and insert it in the rectangular hole of the bottle.
For the ultimate pirate adventure, invite some kids over for a real treasure hunt in your backyard. Her work has been featured in Parents, Better Homes and Gardens, All You, Pregnancy, iVillage, Huffington Post and many others.
With a lot of imagination and creativity, your kids will be enjoying their pirate ships in no time and imagining life on the high seas.
