Children Love Dressing Up As Pirates!
What could be better than to dress up as a pirate? Whether it’s for Halloween, a fancy dress party or just for play Pirate costumes are fun! I used to love playing pirates when I was younger and my daughter loves it now so buying some kid’s pirate costumes makes great sense. Old fashioned piracy fires up a child’s imagination…….it can also teach them skills such as map reading.
As my daughter has gotten older we’ve moved from the ‘treasure maps’ of the back garden to showing her our map book and getting her to find our route to wherever we’re going on the weekend.
Playing pirates can also foster a love for geography as my daughter loves her globe and atlas and even has a world map on her wall. She plots sailing journeys on them and when she sees a little island or country that sounds interesting we look it up and find out a little bit about it. Playing pirates has never been so educational!!
Pirates of the Seven Seas Dress Up Chest
As every wannabe pirate knows you keep your treasure in a chest so where better to stow your pirate costume and accessories than in a pirate’s treasure chest?
Set includes: Hat, headpiece, vest, belt, eye patch, play pistol, fake teeth, expandable telescope, 2 earrings, hook hand, 3 tattoos, sword, 12 play gold coins, coin pouch, treasure map and treasure chest.
Everything in this set is all that your child will need to dress up as a pirate anytime they want, which will probably include when you want them to go shopping with you!!
Having a complete set means that you have your eye patch, treasure map and telescope all of which are essential for pirates, now you can just wear your jeans or trousers and add these accessories, but there’s just something about the old buccaneer type of pirate that looks so ‘real.’ Let’s have a look at some of the amazing child’s pirate costumes that are on offer.
I hate that this dress up chest is no longer available, but I’ve kept it on this page as it’s a great idea and one that you could compile for yourself as an awesome gift idea for a pirate loving child. Find a treasure chest you like and add all of the things listed above in it, or make up your own pirate dress up needs.
