Arrrgggh! International Talk Like a Pirate Day is upon us!

What better way to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day than by transforming your little ones into some awesome looking pirates?

Here's a quick and easy craft to give your kids one great looking pirate hat. All you will need are:

  • Bristol board (Black unless your kids want to get colourful with their hats!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • White paper
  • Colouring utensils (Best to use markers)

Step 1: Create your hat stencil (2 times for each hat)

Get out the white paper and draw your best skull! Let your kids get creative with the colours!

Step 4: Glue the 2 Pieces Together

Make sure to not glue along the bottom edges or else you won't be able to wear your new awesome pirate hat! Argghh, that'd be frustrating!

After gluing, leave your hat for an hour to dry properly. After that let your little pirates run wild and be sure to show us your creations on Facebook or Instagram!

Want even more for your little pirates? Like a parrot perhaps?
