The Pirate's Life for Me

Last week I shared this Pirate Kit over at Darling Doodles for her 12 Days of Gift-mas.  Here it is...just in case you missed it :)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a just-turned-four-year old boy.  And like lots of little boys I know, he loves to pretend!  We recently discovered the new Jake and the Pirates cartoon on the Disney channel, and my little guy is hooked (heh heh).  This Christmas, my little first mate will be finding this Pirate Kit under the tree:

I just so happened to score this perfect treasure chest at JoAnns.  With my 40% off coupon, it was cheaper than one of the unfinished chests!  And so my kit began...

Every pirate worth his jolly roger has found some treasure, so I made a few stenciled booty bags and filled them with Queen's Gold (Dollar Store) and some Crown Jewels (vase filler from Walmart).

I added in a pirate vest (modeled after the one Jake wears in Jake and the Pirates)

And a foam cutlass (from amazon), eye patch and pirate hat (local party store)

And of course - I had to add in a DVD of Jake and the Pirates!

This was such a fun theme kit to put together for my little Muchkin!  I can't wait to see him open it on Christmas morning!

My son got a Pirate gift box for Christmas too. It was a hit!! we haven't seen the Jake show, so I'll have to check it out. I also love the crown jewels and thier little bag. I will have to be on the lookout for those and make some bags!!

I'm doing a pirate party for my sons Birthday later this month I may have to look into something like this for him!

Elisa Black said...

What a great kit!! My son would love this. FYI-- if you have an IKEA near you, they have a wonderful red treasure chest (allegedly for holding toys) for about $8. Don't you just love those Joann's coupons?? They've saved me a LOT of money.
