pirate theme
Old 08-02-2006, 12:45 PM

I, too, am doing a pirate theme. How about a large ship cut from brown butcher paper. Use paint sticks and white paper to make the sails and the Jolly Roger flag. Cut "port holes", enough for each child. On the first day take digital photos of each one, print and put behind the portholes. A title might be "Mrs. ____ Crew or "Crew of the 5th Grade Ship".

Another thought, take skull and crossbone pix which are easy to find on the internet, cut them out, paste on black paper and make flags, banners, etc.

On the door, buy or copy and laminate a big ship wheel. Above it put the title, "Ahoy, mateys. Welcome aboard." Add a little fish net at the top to kind of droop down and give it atmosphere. Little fish nets are available at any party store.

Make a treasure chest and fill it with gold coin candies from Dollar Tree, eye patches, small spy glasses, tattoos, etc. as rewards.
