We had fun making our own pirates and pirate ships during our pirate party. All you need to do is download our FREE Make Your Own Pirates & Pirate Ship Printable and you too can make these.(Complete instructions included on the printable. )
If having a pirate party, we recommend setting up each place setting with the materials needed for the craft (material list provided on the FREE Pirate 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 in order to keep them easy to pull out when needed.
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.
