We gathered together all the cardboard we could: wrapping paper tubes, chocolate boxes etc.
I googled pirate ships and asked him which one we should try and make, and this was the one he chose.
We printed it off as a guide!
Joey isn't normally one for sitting down and colouring in, but he likes painting things!
And here is the finished pirate ship with Joey dressed in his pirate outfit!
I used brown poster paint mixed with PVA glue for the ship and some gold paint for the details.
I asked Joey what he wanted to name his ship....Pirate Captain! I tried to convince him another name might be better, but he was adamant!
I used some kids foam for the skull and cross bones (or as Joey calls it, the scallywag!) and I have a cuttlebug die for cutting out the skull (Joey helped crank the handle!).I used about half a roll of masking tape to make the boat the shape it is!
Hope you like it, and are inspired to make something from Cardboard!
