Ahoy there me hearties! Every pirate captain needs a hat and if you’re having a pirate themed party you’ll need a few of them. This craft activity is quick, easy and effective. It can be easily tailored for your piratical prince or your treasure seeking princess.

Time: 5 – 10 minutes
Age: 5 - 10
Level: Easy

Materials
1 Sheet of craft foam (you could also use card but the foam will stand up better to rough play)
Pencil
Ruler
Black permanent marker
Scissors
Small length of elastic

Method
Take your foam sheet and, from the bottom of one long edge, mark 3cm all the way along the length of the sheet with your grey lead. This band will go around your child’s head.



Using your pencil, draw the shape of the hat, beginning and finishing from the top of the 3cm band.



Draw a skull and crossbones on the front of your hat. Go over all the lines with black marker. Add in any extra details.





Cut out the hat, ensuring to include the 3cm band. Using a hole punch, add a hole to each end of the band.



Tie a small length of elastic through one hole and then the other. Remember that this elastic will stretch to accommodate your child’s head when they put the hat on, so don’t cut it too long.



Raise the main sail and go find some treasure!


Note: The wide band on the hat ensures a comfortable and secure fit for young children but for older children it may not be necessary or desirable. In that case, in step 2, begin the outline of the hat from the bottom of the 3cm band, that is, the edge of the sheet. Connect the left and right sides with a curved line which raises up to touch the top of the 3cm band. Continue as normal.

In step 4, make sure you cut out the curved section from the band. Continue as normal.
