My kids are obsessed with Peter Pan at the moment. So on our rainy days when I’ve been looking for things to do with them I have resorted to “pirate play”.
I found this great site with a tutorial for pirate costumes. We printed off hats and made periscopes. I then made a map similar to hers with pictures of things I thought they’d recognize in the house. We took the sofa and stuck a flag made from a pole and blanket in the cushions and then they set sail.
My kids love scavenger hunts and playing make believe so this was the perfect rainy day activity! Next time you’re frazzled and the rain is keeping you indoors think of an easy DIY pirate adventure!
