Walking with Pirates









It is often difficult to encourage children to walk, so this weekend the 'walk' was made less traumatic for everyone by combining it with a hunt for possible pirate legs. There are eight years between my children and when my son was younger we used to do this and then make the pirates out of air drying clay, incorporating the twigs, shells and other found objects.
This weekend we did not have air drying clay, but we did have art materials so these are some of our pirates. Freya has given one of her colourful pirates a trumpet which was a dried flower that fell out of one of my old sketch books.
