First things first Henry needed to think he was a pirate - out came the bandanna....and two socks tied together for an eye patch...a scary pirate don't you think?
We then got busy preparing the treasure chests for our first activity. Henry coloured them in and then cut them out. While he was doing that i was busy burying the treasure; Lego's to you or I....golden nuggets, ruby stones, emeralds and diamonds to Henry!
We then got digging with desert spoons for the treasure, which was a lot of fun.
Covered in sand, the treasure then needed a wash! The empty liquid soap bottle i was just about to throw away, suddenly became the best thing ever to wash the Lego's with...not to mention feet, the dog and the patio.
With clean treasure, Henry then sorted it into the right treasure chest by colour.
We then counted our pieces of treasure and graphed our findings
Out in the back garden Henry had a lot of fun pretending to be a pirate, and our poor dog was dragged in to be deckhand!
