Have a pirate themed day in the kitchen with this cool pirate ship you can actually eat. The ingredients are simple and kids can easily put it together themselves with parental supervision. It is a lot of fun to prepare (and consume) and you can make all sorts of creative accessories to go with it (fish, parrots, sea gulls etc).
