Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids and one lazy dog, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Saturday 9/19 Is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

9/19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! There are so many ways to celebrate. We have a blast with this oddball holiday every year. 
                              
Are you ready to don your pirate hat and seek treasure and adventure? If not, here are some ways to celebrate!

  • Treasure Hunt (click my Arg, Maties! post for directions on how to make an aged treasure map)
  • Make Buried Treasure Cups (click link for directions). Our first treasure hunt ended up at the fridge for the buried treasure cups.
  • Read your favorite pirate book (link to ours)
  • Make Pumpkin Pirate Boats (click my Arg, Maties! post for directions)
  • Pirate themed coloring pages (I have a coloring sheet in my Arg, Maties! post)
  • Have a pirate speaking contest
  • Serve chocolate gold coins at lunch. They go great with Squidy Dogs, although for Pirate Day maybe they should be called Kraken Dogs!(click link for directions) 
  • If your floors need cleaning, you could always have a swab the deck contest! ;)  
  • Try my Pirate Word Find
  • For bath time, try making foam monsters and ship shapes
  • If you live near a river, etc. with river boat cruises, see if they have a pirate themed cruise. We did one a few years ago, and the boys loved it!
