Two of my mindees (aged 4 and 7) and my 22 month old son all had great fun playing pirates after school today. They used the toy chest in which to hide their “treasure”. They loved taking turns as captain “Aye aye, cap’n” and exclaiming “Ahoy there my hearties!” in their role play game.
Pirates seem perennially popular with young children and particularly here at Aston Childcare. I’ve had mindees past and present dress up as Captain Purplebeard from The Pirate Cruncher for World Book Day and dress up as pirates for their pirate day at school.
Our Pirate Pete potty training book is very popular even for those long past potty training age!
