Ahoy Maties!!

Arrrrr!   We be over-run with pirates back on the 8th !!!

  

And they be led by our own, Captn’ Brooke!

The whole crew invaded Story Time, Bocci, bingo, a treasure hunt and bubble play too!

I went over to watch the bubble making and I wasn’t gonna try it, but my little campers made it look like so much fun!

The big campers too . . . .

I just couldn’t resist!

I like it! I like bubble play!  I think I’ll go every week from now on!

Some of my little  pirates made Fairy Houses, too!

And Captain Brooke . .. she made us all walk the plank!

in style!

And THAT was only Friday.

Saturday was full of different fun and games.  After making eye patches and parrots at Arts and Crafts,

   

and playing landlubber games in the field, we had a Cannon Shooting Contest!

Nooooooo, not a real cannon silly!  Safety-First Tami would never let us do that!

First, we take a water balloon,

and then we put it in the slingshot . . .

and we pull back . . . far, far, back . . .

and we launch!   The first three to catch a balloon unbroken . . .

Gets a free ice cream certificate!

Some of my little campers made some awesome jewelry.

They worked really, really hard on it.

I wish I could make jewelry, but, you know . . . I don’t have thumbs. Or fingers.

The pirate games were a blast!

We played Pin the Pirate on the treasure map . . .

And a game where we had to wear a hook on our hands . . .

The big event of the weekend was Mad Science ~ what an awesome show!

It was all about energy . . .

He was very funny!

He shot off an Angry Bird!!  With a slingshot!

I love Pirate Weekend!  Everyone goes around saying “Ahoy Maties!” and “Arrrrr!”

And they tell a lot of pirate jokes too . . . . like, “What’s a pirate’s favorite letter?”

Did you guess R?  You’re wrong!

It’s C!  Get it?  C? The sea?

Never mind.
