Yesterday, we made some pirate cookies. We talked about how some food needs to be stored to be eaten on another day – just like pirates had to!! Today, though the tantalizing smell of cookies could not be overlooked anymore so we had to eat them!!!When I asked if we should have a pirate snack, one of the children said it had to be fish. She explained that that’s what the pirates would probably have had as they sailed the oceans blue. SO’…….. we had fish and chips. The children then had to solve the problem because I only had a flat piece of greased proof paper and the fish and chips would roll off! It was suggested that we could make a cone to carry the fish and chips in.
After the fish and chips we had our pirate cookies. They were delicious. We ended the afternoon with a modern take on the pirate hornpipe!!!
