Shiver me timbers! Pirates at play!

Shiver me timbers! We love this pirate themed tray full of ideas to engage children as they investigate and explore. So avast ye, weigh the anchor, leave them landlubbers behind, plunder the treasure and become a sea dog for the day...arrr!

Most children love a chance for Pirate themed play – whether it is part of a wider topic or simply a tuff spot or area set up for a few days.

We love the varied activities that can be found in a Tuff Tray:

Explore what happens under the sea using a backdrop of ocean themed fabrics, shimmery sea fabric and netting. Make paper fish and paper plate octupuses. Provide a large treasure chest full of materials and dressing up costumes. Add sand and pebbles for a really immersive feel.
