Wordful Wednesday: Pirate Party!

The other day we had a pirate party. There was a Peter Pan movie on TV that the kids wanted to watch, so I decided to make an evening of it.

The kids got dressed for the occasion in their Halloween costumes and I made everyone a pirate sword out of newspaper. They had a blast!

I was a little concerned that despite assurances from the author of the post that she's never seen anyone get hurt with one of these, we would manage it. It's been two days, and while the swords are rapidly disintegrating, the children are still intact. Score!

Yes, there was some smacking that probably stung a little, but overall they played nice. We had to laugh when someone ran to the bedroom and came out with a hanger so they could be Captain Hook.

The kids had so much fun that I'm sure I'll be making these swords again.

Play along with Wordful Wednesday over at Seven Clown Circus.
