Doing a craft at a kids party is always a great way to keep the kids entertained and dare I say “contained.” You feel me? Kids can get a little wild so it’s nice to distract them for awhile with a craft.
The print-it-yourself PDF file is 2 pages. Page one is for the Pirate Craft and page two is for the Pirate Ship Craft. The printable includes instructions and a material list.
If using these for a party, we recommend setting up each place setting with the materials needed for the craft (material list provided on the printable). We also had some items (like scissors, glue, tape, markers) as community items in cans on the table.
NOTE: Even though you only need two paper straws per pirate, we gave the kids a bunch to choose from so they could be creative with their colors and patterns. We tied the straws, dowel rod and pipe cleaners together with a ribbon.
Tip when doing a craft at a party: Always have extra materials on hand OR if you don’t want to set your table(s) with the craft, make a station with all the materials available.
Be sure to see my Pirate Birthday Party post for all the other party details.
