DAY TWO: DIY PIRATE HOOK
Pirate Week continues…here is a super easy and frugal craft…many of you may already have everything you need at home to do these.
We did these this weekend and they were a big hit. Both boys loved them…I even got my husband involved in the hook making.
This is a craft a parent will need to do for the younger ones…and possibly even older kids since you will need to use a knife/scissors…
What you will need:
Disposable Plastic Cup or Sturdy Paper Cup or Styrofoam
Black Duct Tape
We used plastic cups because I thought they would last longer…plus many of you may have these on hand since the 4th of July is tomorrow. If you don’t I see these on-sale right now everywhere for around $2. You will need to punch a hole in the bottom of the cup. I used a knife. Then I started wrapping strips of duct tape around the hole.
Once the top is covered in tape, start working the tape around the cup (remember the cup is on a slant) I found it easier to work with smaller pieces of tape.
Next the hook- grab sheet pan’s length worth of tin foil and roll into skinny cylinder and insert it through the hole you made in your cup. Then shape you hook. Inside the cup there will be a foil “handle” for your pirate to hold onto.
Wah-la! I mean “Arghhh”…You have a super awesome pirate hook for your next adventure.
