The grand loves and I are setting sail on a pirate adventure this week. Our church’s Kid’s Club is searching for buried treasure (God’s Word) at vacation bible school and…yes…the theme of choice is Treasure Island which, of course, requires pirates.
I’m a volunteer and my position is a mate to help run the games for K-2nd grade which include a treasure hunt and capture the flag game. I’ve got the required staff tee-shirt and have been encouraged to accessorize with pirate-y types of things. Hmmmmm…post-Halloween witch accessories I have; but that doesn’t seem very appropriate for a number of reasons.
I do a quick search on Google and Pinterest for pirate ideas. Not such a good idea. Here’s a general summary of the pirate-y ideas I found to round out my transformation.
Oh definitely, because a short little skirt would be sooooo practical hoisting anchor, battening down the hatches, climbing to the crow’s nest and other pirate activities. I suppose the rest of her clothing could be explained that it shrunk when wet to the size of a 4T.
A bit more coverage on top is good when out in the hot sun, and who wouldn’t love the fashion statement of an aqua, sateen jacket with hot pink ribbons? But, alas, we’re back to a skirt. And methinks the lacy material would just get caught on any number of sharp objects. But maybe that’s the point. The sword is a possibility.
