Cardboard... Sellotape... Pirate ships...

This week has been a tough week of poorly poorly children (time off nursery) and poorly Mummy (time off work to look after children and self)...

So today even though everyone is still poorly... At 8am during major toddler breakdowns I decided it would be good fun to make a cardboard pirate ship to play with!... 😂 We love pirates in this house...

2.5 hours later... 3 cardboard boxes and a ton of Sellotape that doesn't stick to anything, an anchor, steering wheel and lots and lots of imagination and 1 ahem... Pirate ship!...

It's not the best in the world and could be greatly improved with stronger cardboard, paint, sails, Sellotape that actually sticks, an engineer and possibly some actual instructions to follow...

But I'm sure my littles will get at least 5 minutes of play from it before they wreck it!...
