April 27, 2012Welcome back to this week’s How To – where I made a Cardboard DIY Pirate Ship for the children! I like to layer my paper in different directions – you know how when you tear newspaper it one direction it tears really is easily, but not in the other?
7) Let dry again and add detail – I painted on some skull and cross bones and anchors.
I’ve been dying to see this since the teaser (prior to covering in paper mache) and it is amazing! What a cute little pirate ship…my boys would have so much fun playing with one like that!
After all the amazing things you’ve posted to Creative Juice Thursday over the past year, I just had to feature you {and much more in the future too} at the new site.
Also consider how your child will cope with action figures and accessories included with the set. It features working cannons, a hidden compartment to store treasure, four action figures, and a crane that can be used for loading and unloading the goods.
It can float it on water, or you can add the Playmobil Underwater Motor set (sold separately) to power it.
Jake and the Neverland Pirate fans’ long wait for toys was out to an end this Summer. To keep JNLP fans entertained at bathtime, Fisher-Price have lauched the Splashin’ Bucky toy ($20).


This is a half boat with a one flat side and suction cups to stick it to the tub, tiles or shower screen. It is designed so kids can enjoy water play by scooping water in the little row boat and pouring it into Bucky to make rain, a water slide, and push the porthole wheel around. This model from Melissa and Doug ($70) is beautifully detailed, and features a spinning steering wheel, a captain’s cabin, a cargo hold, and a three-man pirate crew. I used some nail scissors (that I have especially for crafting) – as they have a nice round curve.
The deck is quite fragile and is the part that probably benefits the most from the paper mache.
Well, I believe that if you criss cross your paper layers when paper maching, you get a stronger final construction.

Then glue all the discs together with strong (!) glue and finally glue in place on the boat.
I reckon it would be a really good pinata for a birthday party if it was built a bit bigger with a weakened section – what do you think?


Check out the awesome tutorial Michelle of the blog Mollymoo shared on how to make a recycled material pirate ship toy.
See what you can find at home and amend our DIY Pirate Ship How to, to suite what you have at home! Near the middle I snipped the fabric, threaded through some string and with that tied the sail to the mast! Learn how to build a toy pirate ship your child will play with and treasure for years to come. Best to cut your two side panels and the back, tape it all together and then to cut your base and desk to fit your boat. They are ideal because you can break or cut them into any length you need and they hold together well with Elmers glue. It's a good idea to use flexible twigs glued together to form a pirate ship structure and then glue the craft sticks to the twigs. The twigs provide a useful guideline and add support to the structure of the ship's body.
