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. Funny I was wearing the Alcatraz tee shirt that day‚Ķ so decided to call myself The Pirate of Alcatraz!
This entry was posted in City life, Life, Projects and tagged Germany, USA, Weekend project by Chadaga. Now a real pirate would come to your house and commandeer your pirate ship and taketh it away. Glue the sides of the ship together first, and then cut or break craft stick pieces to form the plank deck of the ship. Cut two or three ragged square pieces of sheet material and draw or paint the Jolly Roger (skull and crossbones) on the sheet pieces. My son and I started reading very short non-fiction stories from GenZ Read Together, a website that makes reading together an entertaining educational experience.
We also learned from the story that Spanish galleons followed a specific path as it picked up treasure and returned to Spain. To extend The Atocha story at home, I found a pirate ship craft and two books (a picture book and a chapter book) for kids who like pirates and treasure hunting. Young Jeremy Jacob demonstrates how easy it is to be a successful pirate in this fun and funny picture book.

I’m so glad that you enjoyed the post and will try out some of the ideas with your boys!
I think The Atocha was one of the first GenZ stories I read with my son and then he got totally hooked on the stories. I love that your kids are finding books on convincing parents to let them buy a pet hamster!
My girls have enjoyed reading about historical figures, but they don’t read a lot of non fiction, so this would be a good way to help them branch out a bit more from their favorite fiction writers. 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.
They are ideal because you can break or cut them into any length you need and they hold together well with Elmers glue. I’ve included a picture book and a chapter book perfect for pirates or treasure hunters. He joins the pirate ship of Captain Braid Beard and his crew but finds that pirate life, while fun, lacks the charms of home. This easy chapter book has a larger font with text broken up with plenty of  full page illustrations and informative sidebars. We have not graduated to pirates just yet, except, of course, for their grandfather’s book, Captain Crossbones in the Treasure Hunt. Each of us on the blog tour are giving away 3 subscriptions so there will be 15 winners in all!
Right now they have a variety of books about animals (including one on how to convince your parents that you’re ready for a pet hamster), books about various presidents, and one book on costume design! They sound like they love a variety of non fiction and that is exactly what the site is all about. My kids too tend to read more fiction so it’s been a wonderful experience to read the best non fiction stories fed to us via email.
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?


This book would appeal to boys who like facts mixed with a not-to0-scary mystery adventure. 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.
We had traveled to Barcelona two years ago, so I found a map to show him it was in Spain and south of Barcelona. 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. 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 idea is to have the parent read to the child and there are discussion questions that are interesting for each story. It was also fun to realize that the Florida Keys wasn’t always the swanky place it is today. GenZ also sneaks in two vocab and a reading comprehension question that Dylan can earn points called Zoints for answering.
Still, if I had to live somewhere during the Great Depression, the Florida Keys sounded pretty nice!
Usually, the video takes the story a little deeper, or illustrates the story, or is just plain funny. For the invention of velcro story, the video was David Letterman’s famous Velcro Suit!
We also got a lot of mileage out of telling him to brush his teeth or they would end up green like a pirate’s!
