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. Trim the corners off the front of the top piece along the lines so it has a triangular end. Use the hole punch to punch one hole at the top of your sail in the middle and one hole at the bottom.
Extras: Use paint to decorate the hull of the ship or cut out shapes of colored paper to glue on.

I use paper towel and toilet paper rolls for crafts at school, and I use an old ice cube tray to hold beads and findings! I like to keep small jars and other containers to keep small items together in my craft room. Toilet paper cardboards, paper towel cardboards, oatmeal boxes, egg cartons, liquid creamer containers.
I keep toilet paper and paper towel rolls, also kleenex boxes and any do dads I find around the house.
I keep all kinds of things like paper tubes, bread ties, magnets, magazines, milk jug rings, leaves and pinecones. I’m the Editorial Assistant for Fun Family Crafts and I wanted to let you know that we have featured your pirate ship! And, to answer your question, I craft with toilet paper rolls, empty water bottles, old magazines and newspapers, bubble wrap, lunch sacks, and a whole bunch of other items. Geek Crafts: Nerdy Nail ArtI’m Haley Pierson-Cox from The Zen of Making, and this is your weekly dose of geeky goodness! 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.
The pirate ship could of course have been a hollowed out milk carton with a lollipop stick but I wanted to create something Molly would engage with for even longer.
She loves it, played with it for hours yesterday, and because it’s not the archetypal black with skull and crossbone pirate ship she thought it ok to welcome a group of giddy Polly Pockets onboard for a spin around the bay too.

Three friends by the name Josh, Mikey and Joel have recently pieced together a life-sized pirate ship that, although probably unfit for sailing, is pretty impressive to look at. Just check out the picture above and judge for yourselves if you don't believe me when I say it looks really cool. As surprising as this may sound, Josh, Mikey and Joel needed just five days to engineer the vessel. On the contrary, these three eco-artists relied on recycled cardboard to complete this project. In order to get their hands on the materials they needed to build their pirate ship, Josh, Mikey and Joel combed streets and collected whatever cardboard they chanced to stumble upon. 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.

Put the end of the straw through the hole in the top ship piece and fold down the 2 ends of the straw.

I keep cards and pretty paper for cutting up, plastic bottle tops, egg cartons, fabric scraps from my quilting and sewing and I even collect the hanging ribbons I cut off clothing as I do not use them to hold clothes on hangers and you get so many different widths, lengths and colours. I take off the top and bottom and then use metal shears to cut the metal into different shapes.


Any nerd girl worth her horn-rimmed glasses has a few solid beauty tricks up her sleeve, and geeky manicures are one of mine.
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! Interestingly enough, they did not use any wood or other materials that your ordinary pirate ship is made from.
Larger sheets of cardboard were cut to make curly waves licking at the base of the boat, while trimmer remnants added texture to the faux- wood on the side of the boat,” Inhabitat reports.
The intricate piece was crowned with a ghastly figurehead depicting a skeleton witch with wild cardboard hair and a curling cardboard tongue,” the same source details. 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.
Use a stapler to staple each end flat to the top piece so you mast is standing straight and secure. You can actually find this project and many more like it in their book, Scrapkins Build It Book: 12 Things You Can Make from Junk! From nature crafts to make in your own back yard, to edible kids crafts in the kitchen, to crafts for kids who dream of adventure, we feature all sorts of kids crafts from the web's most innovative parents and craft designers. 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. Two evenings later, covered in glue and paint, the ship was pushed down the slipway and launched with no great fanfair! 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! 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.
