Today, our firstborn turned into Captain Alexander, the friendly pirate. He talked about it all day yesterday (because one of his friends dressed as a pirate to school yesterday), so I decided to make him a little pirate hat, spyglass and take him on a treasure hunt.
So, decorated an old shoe box, turned it into a treasure chest. Filled it with treasure (chocolate coins,M&Ms, playdoh, chalk, glitter pens, notebooks, bubbles, the things he loves) and put together an old treasure map.
Stained it with a teabag, burned the edges and allowed it to dry overnight. Today, was our treasure hunt, and he had such a lovely time.
Got a couple of pics, and the smile on his face says it all. I think we made a memory. :)
Speaking of making memories...Samuel's first ice cream cone (I know, I know. Bad mama).
Needless to say, straight into the bath after this. :)
