Ahoy thar Matey!

Remember this box? It has held up pretty well, considering it has been a race car, a ball holding box and a toy box, to name just a few. It got a new life today. It became a pirate ship!

To start the process we had to add smoke stacks. On a pirate ship? Ok, how about we add some sails. I'll mark them, you cut them. He even colored them and emblazoned them with his name, his own handwriting. A skill he has just recently mastered, or began to master...

Have to measure, make sure it's sea worthy...

Every pirate needs a telescope.

Or even better, binoculars!

But I need a telescope that's attached. Ok, break out some more scotch tape, scissors and some play-doh tools and viola!

No Hat! I don't have a pirate hat.

Bug hat is an acceptable substitute. It's too tight. So we made it bigger.

Eye see you!

Somehow a skull and cross bones didn't seem appropriate. So let's have a rainbow instead! This is a happy ship.

Every pirate ship needs supplies. Art supplies it is for this one! I was instructed to pile them all on top of him. Guess we know who the Captain of this ship is!

See ya on the high seas, matey!

All RIGHT! Adrift on the sea... Ahoy, I spy land!
At least the kitchen floor didn't get flooded, or painted blue.
Wonderful adventure. (But what about a carrier deck for the airplanes?)
