Pirate

It’s funny how things can spark imagination play.

Rufus and I this afternoon watched this episode of Shaun the Sheep on Iplayer.  The result was a packed half hours play of all things piratey, including playing Yohoho pairs game and reading this and this book.

Arghhh!

  • You’ve gotta love a themed playtime! I remember when I was a fresher and more exciting mother, I used to theme our days. It worked brilliantly, such that I am trying to remember why I don’t do this anymore! x

  • Pirates have always gone down well in our house despite Alice being a girly xox Such beautiful pictures of your sweet son x

  • I know what you mean about things sparking an interest. That’s a fabulous pirate ship Rufus has. My son received a pirate outfit for xmas complete with two swords. He loves dress ups.

  • ah we/i love the night pirates, & Olives fancy dress of choice is always the pirate one (or the buzz one – you can clearly tell she has a big brother!)

  • A little joke for you:
    How did Captain Hook die?
    – He wiped his bottom with the wrong hand!
    (My boys love that one) xx

  • Aaaw, gorgeous pics…what a nice afternoon! He’s a handsome man that’s for sure. And what a super pirate ship too…my husband would definitely want that for Bertie! Thanks for your lovely comments of late too. x

  • We had that game too. The boys loved all things pirate – from dressing up to playing with their playmobil pirate ship.

  • Wow, we had that game ages ago (children now 12 and 13)… I remember, we finally sold it at a Vide Grenier at the school, so hopefully it’s still being used, but now in French!
