Arghhh! Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day! After Tristan’s personalised book and awesome bandana arrived the kids have been all about pirates! We went through a pirate phase a couple of years ago as well….This time the kids are older and are coming up with their own ideas of how to celebrate all things pirate. Today, Tristan would like to share the pirate snack he created on his own.
A few years back the kids decorated Jaffa Cakes to look like pirates when the whole family spent an afternoon recreating a scene from one of Julia Dweck’s book, Pie-Rits! (affiliate links are used in this post).
Tristan had a little think, and then the lightbulb lit in his head. He remembered the spidey snack he once had and then he was off!
He gathered up all of the things he would need:
- Nana’s homemade fruit leather
- Licorice all-sorts
- Licorice laces (we made a special trip to the shop for him to get this item)
Then Tristan and Kallista put themselves into creativity mode in the kitchen while I was asked to let them be and go make myself busy elsewhere….
And here are the finished products (they even made one for me, sweet children that they are).
Tristan’s getting very handy when it comes to staging photographs – the ship and coins were his idea!
And then finally….
It was snack time and the pirates faced their fate….
