Pirate Fun & Our Amazing Fort!

Now remember we are only 2, 4 and a little bit more, years old and so nothing is going to be huge and spectacular... but, I think that whenever children use their imagination to make something, whether it is small or fancy, it is great because you et to see what children think about and how they see the world differently to us. 

Today we were pirates. So argh mi hearties, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum and all that malarkey. 

We decided to make a pirate fort. We were going to go for a ship but didn't want to get the carpet wet and the boys can't swim too and didn't want to be dangerous or anything (sorry for the sarcasm) so we stuck to a fort, a place where we could hide our treasure.

We chose a nice blue cover which had stars on it, so that when we were inside the fort it would look like it was night with big bright stars in the sky. That was Thomas' choice and I thought that it looked great. 

After getting all of our things, our gear and our monkey (pirates always need a pet) we were ready to sail the seas, or run around the room shouting 'yargh ahh ahh' as that is what we actually did!

Thomas had an eye patch, a sword and a hook. He was playing the old fashioned Captain Hook style pirate whereas Charlie had a gun, going for the modern look. We ran around looking for treasure, hiding from the evil Captain Longbeard (or daddy as he is usually known) but couldn't seem to find any treasure anywhere. 

After going back to our fort to hide from the evil Captain and to have a rest and feed our monkey, we popped out again and there it was.... a gold coin!

We ran over and picked it up. And there was another, and another, and another. We followed them all over the house until we found a big pile of them. 

But then Captain Longbeard found us and chased up back downstairs but luckily we got to our fort before he could steal our booty. 

Looking and smiling at the fact that we had completed our mission, we sat and ate our chocolate coin treasure and cannot wait to see what our next mission has in store for us!

I am entering our fort into the #blanketfortcomp from The Furniture Market and can not wait to see the other entries too.

  10. Having a garden is quite essential part of the
    routine life. There are currently dozens of free-to-low cost
    avenues of publicity you can take advantage of.
    If you own fescue, cut it down to two or two and a half inches.

  12. All three firms are poised to take action on the note - an action designed to collect on
    the unpaid balance at ______ percent % per year. Here is my suggestion to avoid
    problems: If you want to be identified because of the CBRC's rules, declined to
    comment about the bank's specific costs to cover replacement cards.
    This is the only bank to have wrestled with this issue thus far.
