Ahoy! It's International Talk Like A Pirate Day

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt

Talk Like A Pirate Day It's no secret that today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day... or perhaps it is news to you... I only just discovered the fact for myself recently.  Some clever bunny decided about 10 years ago that it would be a fun thing to do, and just like that, a new day was born... Wouldn't it be fun if governments around the world could declare this a holiday for everyone!
If you want to get into a Pirate-lovin' mood here's a few easy things you can do with your family to discover your inner-pirate and enhance your Pirate-talkin' day me hearteys:

  • Use Pirate Printpapers or remnants of wrapping paper, and rip them up, the more torn the better; then make a backdrop for a black and white photo - I chose one where my children are in boxes (sort of like boats - sort of) and then pop one last skull and cross bones on top of the picture to complete the look.
  • Make a Captain's hook using a plastic cup and fork by following the blog instructions I've written before.
  • Create mini pirate flag bunting out of black paper and stickers and hang it up as decoration.
  • Download a Pirate treasure hunt app for your ipad.
  • Cut up an old piece of cardboard to create a shark-fin prop to scare the kids.
  • Download the Pirate Ebook and the treasure chest template and fill it with (light-weight) loot...

Lastly, think of someone that you can reach out and help - in Australia, Talk like a Pirate day also raises money for children with cancer (click here to read more or donate); because there's nothing more powerful than the gift of giving...  best wishes,
