Pirates for Girls & Babies

I was so excited for the Pirate theme this month because we TOTALLY do pirates. I bought the only two Pirate books from Usborne that we didn’t have and even planned a Pirate(-Ninja) Party. Unfortunately, July was not a good month for pirate play. It’s been a crazy busy month. No one was able to come to the Pirate-Ninja Party so we went sailing instead.

Usborne Pirate Books

I bought two pirate board books from UsborneMy First Pirate Book and Noisy Pirates. My First Pirate Book was a my first seek-and-find kind of book. It was a little young for my almost 4 year old and a little old for my one year old. Maybe it will be good for that 2-3 year group.

The Little Man adored Noisy Pirates almost as much as Itty Bitty dislikes it. She doesn’t think things with no off switch or loud noises. Noisy Pirates is a tabbed board book with buttons. The pictures on the buttons correspond to the tabs and play sound effects appropriate to the page. Or you can just play the pirate song ad nauseum, like the Little Man does. The sounds are a little long for the small size of the pages; he gets a little impatient when you try to make them correspond and the girls aren’t much better. I’m still glad to have added it to our collection.

Pirates for Girls

Like I said earlier, the party was a bust, but we did buy the newest Tinkerbell Fairies movie — The Pirate Fairy. In it, a fairy figured out how to make different kinds of pixie dust and even switched all their powers around. It was a super cute movie and even told about the beginnings of Hook & the croc.

We didn’t get to this, but while looking for another craft project this past weekend, I found these Disney Fairy peg dolls that include Zarina, the Pirate Fairy. If I had time (and more pegs) I would make them for Pirate Week. Maybe next year.

Because we do Pirate Week every year, they have pirate dresses and daggers. They also have several Jake & the Neverland Pirates play sets. But I got sick of them never picking up their toys and took it all away. So I forgot to get them out :). Oops.

Pirates for Babies

When I found the Disney Fairy peg dolls for the girls, I found this super easy set of pirate peg dolls to make for boys. These I WILL be making. They are super easy and I have lots of boy shaped pegs. They are perfect for babies! Preferably ones who aren’t still eating everything though. I think most sealers are probably not very good for eating.

I had also intended to take the kids to one of the pirate themed playgrounds in town, but we never made it.
