Pirate Craft for Kids!
Step 1: Gather your materials! Print out the pirate craft cutouts onto cardstock paper. Regular computer paper is too thin! Next, use scissors to cut out the pieces. Some of the shapes are for advanced cutters. Be sure to pre-cut any pieces depending on your little ones skills. Then, use watercolors to fill in your paper plate.
Step 2: Once your paper plate and pirate nose are filled in, use a glue stick to paste the pirate pieces to the small paper plate. Glue the hook hand to the backside of the paper plate, so it sticks out a little bit.
Step 3: Add your own pirate flourishes with crayons or markers. Add hair and some rosy cheeks. Color in the skull and crossbones too, even a string for the eye patch. Be sure to ask your little ones questions while completing the craft. Where do pirates live? What is it pirates are searching for? What is your favorite pirate saying?
