My kids went to a pirate party at the weekend and they had some great crafts to do at the start before the games began. They both really enjoyed making pirate telescopes. A grown up will need to help young ones with the folding and rolling but it's the decoration part which is most fun.
Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Stickers, pens & jewels to decorate
Start with a rectangle of paper.
Fold over two corners as shown.
Roll from one corner that has not been folded.
You'll find that it naturally starts to turn into a cone shape.
Roll up to leave one end wide, and a narrower opening at the other but large enough to look through.
Tape at the back.
Decorate with stickers, drawings and stick on jewels.
