Junior Pirates: Make yer own pirate hat!



Ahoy, junior pirates! Dead Skin Dave has just set me an urgent request.  He seems to have lost his crew, and he needs replacements as quickly as possible! All you need to do is make this official pirate hat to join Dave’s crew! Hurry he needs your help!

What You’ll Need:


Grocery bag (child hat) or newspaper (adult hat)



Step 1:
Cut open the bag so that you are left with a large front panel.

Step 2:
Carefully remove the handles.

Step 3:
Fold the panel in half along the width of the paper.

Step 4:
Fold the two corners to the center. Because your started with a rectanglular panel, the folded corners should leave you with some excess space at the bottom.

Step 5:
Fold the bottom excess up and over the corners as shown.

Step 6:
Repeat Step 5 for the reverse side of the hat.

Step 7:
Use your marker or other embellishments to decorate the face of your pirate hat. Start with skull and cross bone and see what else you can add.

Step 8:
Put on your pirate hat and say “ARRRGH!”
