A few weeks ago, I found a fun pirate telescope at Sharing Shop and saved it for our Pirate Day.
Thomas had a great time looking for approaching ships..... but all he found was Zeke napping in the sun :)
I made a letter map for Thomas who followed the 'P's to the treasure.
Then, we needed a real treasure hunt.
I found this site with printables that let you customize your own treasure map to fit your yard. Awesome!
The pirates were off on the hunt. . . .
At each numbered point on the map Thomas found another magnetic letter. Once collected, the 'treasure' helped Thomas practice our letters and ordinal numbers as he arranged them to make a secret message :
X, of course, marked the spot..... for an arrr-worthy lunch :)
