Save your cardboard boxes and turn them into this EASY TO MAKE Pirate Ship. It is so fun to combine "store bought toys" with homemade elements. And our Pirate Boat has been a great hit over the years! My kids now believe i can make ANYTHING :-) from box to simple pirate ship. Harrrharr.
Make fishing boats out of cardboard boxes, lay down a blue tarp to make it look like water, use a sand bucket to put the fish in and use those play fishing poles with fish that you get in any toy section at any large super store
