Pirate Adventure

Write a seafaring adventure with plenty of action and a pirate fit to shiver yer timbers!

How many things were added to make this character look like a pirate?


Make a pirate ship out of a shoe box. Add cardboard on the sides in the shape of a ship’s sides. Use globs of clay in the the box to hold up sticks with paper sails.  All set… Now make some characters to act out your story.

Draw characters on thin cardboard or tagboard. Be sure to include details that make your characters come to life. How does a pirate dress? What else makes a character a pirate. How about a parrot, a chest of gold, a wooden leg….
What other characters do you need for your story? More pirates? A stowaway? A monkey? You decide….

Once you have your ship and characters you are ready to play out different pirate adventures. Where will the pirates go? What are they after? Is there a hero in your story? What danger and adventure will happen on the high seas?

Write About It!

Write your favorite stories out to make an exciting  Pirate Adventure! Add drawings or photos of your characters to illustrate each story and staple or bind your stories into a book.
