Poppins Book Nook- PIrates

The theme for July for Poppins Book Nook was pirates!  What a fun theme!

Poppins Book Nook- Pirates

We read “How I Became a Pirate” by Melinda Long.  It was such a fun book and the illustrations were great!

 At the beginning of the book, the little boy, Jeremy is building a sand castle at the beach when he sees a pirate ship.  So, we thought it would be fun to build our own sand castle.

Next, Hailey and Hunter painted some rocks gold… well Hunter insisted that his rocks also be green, but for the most part the rocks were gold :-)

Hailey painted an old baby wipes container to make it look like a treasure chest.

After the paint dried, Hailey and Hunter added some gems to the treasure chest.

Then, Hailey drew a map of our back yard.

This is the completed map of our back yard… Rich burned the edges of a paper bag to give it an old look.

Then, while we waited inside, Rich went out back and hid our treasure chest.

According to the map Hailey drew, which Rich added an X to, she needed to take just a few steps from the fire pit to find the treasure.

But, when she dug to see what she would find- she found another clue…
