Pirate Ship Cost- about $6 I got the large cardboard sheets from Sams Club (free) and the tarp from a hardware store ($5+tax). I cut the cardboard in the shape of the ship and the cabin and cut out the port hole. I drew the doors/windows, the anchor and the wood grain with sharpies and crayons. Glued the front pieces together. Taped the cabin and flag on the tarp which I first hung out on the carport. The kids at my sons bday party could "get in the ship" to take pirate pictures!
