Arrrrrr! My name is Jack Sparrow, Captain Jack Sparrow… Today we have a pirate busy box idea! How fun!
I reused some pieces of the Ocean Busy Box, hence the scale difference, and added a pirate ship and a pirate. The pirate even has a sword!
As with all the other felt busy boxes I made(see the collection HERE), this one is open ended too. That means that your child can play with it in any way he/she wants. If the pirate wants to go for a swim, he can. Or, if the fish are magic and flies, that is fine too! Imagination is key with these boxes and it should be fun to play with, right? Making up stories develop creativity and language skills too!
Would your child like this idea?
