PIRATE SHIP

Cardboard box pirate ship for kids play

With a cardboard box you can go on any adventure, today we made our boxes into a pirate ship!

MATERIALS: 2 large cardboard boxes, tape, hot glue, a craft knife, a bamboo cane, black and white paper.

DIRECTIONS: First I begin with turning one of the boxes inside out and then taping it back together. I then cut a flap 3/4 the height of one side of the box.

Flatten your other cardboard box and cut away one side, leaving 3 sides. The middle will become the base of your boat and the other flaps the sides.
