Your kids imagination will go wild with this fun Action Packer turned Pirate Ship & Toy Storage! I thoroughly enjoy listening in my boys world of imagination when they pretend play, most of the time it’s amusing. I especially love to hear them being bad guy pirates with manners. This was also featured in the Simple Summer Issue, stop by and check it out.
The bad guy pirate says, “Grrr, give me my gold back please.”
The good guy pirate says, “Sorry but you can’t have it.”
Don’t worry they are your typical boys so they quickly go from that to sword fighting and walking planks.
You may have seen this project in the Simple Summer Issue here! I wanted to make sure you got your hands on this simple fun so I am also sharing it here.
For the ship: You need an action packer or laundry basket. You can even use a cardboard box. Wrap wood design contact paper on it I just did it around the top but you can do it all over. Then wrap thick rope or twine over it.
For the Flag: I used a piece of fabric and with a sharpie drew a pirate cross on it and filled it in with black paint. Our boys room has a nautical/pirate theme so I used fabric so we can place this in their room but you can just use a piece of cardstock and draw on it. Place flag on a wooden rod, broom stick or a bamboo tiki torch (what I used).
Toy Storage: When they are done playing this goes back in their room and it’s serves as a pirate ship toy storage for their stuffed animals and clothes they don’t want to hang up (yea, I figured out their secret)!
The other props are from their Nautical/Pirate room which I will be sharing with you some time in the near future. They are into pirates right now so they prefer it called a Pirate room.
I love when my things have many uses!
