We Be True Pirates

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 2135.
So over the weekend we had some fun. We made a pirate flag!

This was actually a pretty simple project. First The Captain went to the Goodwill Outlet store – which is like a real life Mos Eisley spaceport (Star Wars reference). The cool thing about the GWO is that you pay by the pound. Yep, they weigh your cart. So, for about 49¢, The Captain was the proud owner of a black blanket.
Next I purchased two poster boards to make a skull stencil.

The Captain is not a great artist, but a skull and cross bones was not too difficult. The Eldest helped me with the drawing and cutting.
We cut out the eyes and nose and teeth in order to place them inside of the stencil.
Next, we took spray paint (99¢) and sprayed inside of the stencil. The Eldest had a hard time pushing the button down, but had fun nonetheless.
Next time we might do it the old fashioned way and steal one from a Jimmy Buffet concert buy one from Amazon, but this was a quick and easy project to do with the kiddo. This also means that we are officially pirates! Warned ye be!
For now…Captain out.
P.S. Stay tuned…The Poop Deck will have a new home very soon…and we want to make sure that everyone comes with us. Announcement coming soon!
