Our girls just headed back to school and we’re already having fun with theme days in the classroom. Did you know that September 19th is Talk Like A Pirate Day? It’s just another fun day that I want to celebrate with my girls.

Pirate’s Booty is a great tasting snack that my kids like. Made with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives it also is a snack I can feel good about giving to them. They come in larger bags that have 12 smaller snack sized bags, so they can easily just grab and go. As we get closer to Talk Like A Pirate Day we want to celebrate in a fun way and my girls always call these the pirate snacks. In fact, my preschooler says they’re her favorite!

It’s always fun to pack my kids snacks that I know they will enjoy. It allows me to make them smile without being with them. The puffs are fun to eat and taste great. We took a little time to celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day with a fun and simple afternoon craft with my preschooler. We made pirates with paper plates. Paper plate crafts are some of my favorites because they’re so easy!

Talk Like a Pirate Day Paper Plate Craft

What You’ll Need:
  • Paper plates
  • Colored construction paper
  • Glue
  • Kid-Friendly Scissors
  • Markers
  • Googly eyes, any other extra craft items (optional)
What to Do:
 
Let your kid use their imagination!  Some ideas for pirate-y items are:
  1. To make a bandana: Take a colored piece of construction paper, cut it into a half circle and paste it on the top of the head.  Then cut out two rectagles and dovetail them on the far left or right side of the half circle.
  2. To make an eyepatch: Take a black piece of construction paper, cut it into a half circle and paste it over where the pirates eye would be.  Draw some lines on either side with markers to show the string

Instead of sandwiches, I like to mix it up with salad and a side of pita bread and hummus. There’s also a variety of vegetables and grapes for a sweet treat. The easiest way to pack lunches, I have found, is with a bento style lunchbox. It allows you to easily pack a variety of food without using a lot of packaging or creating a giant mess.

Kids like to use their hands and one of the best ways to get my girls to eat veggies is to give them some dip. Hummus is one of our favorite dips and it’s great for lunches. My girls always like a crunchy snack to go with lunch and that’s why Pirate’s Booty is a delicious snack. I don’t like to overthink lunches and it’s nice to just have things on hand that you know your kids will like. It’s fun when you get to play with a theme like Talk Like A Pirate Day, then you can add in a fun note and pirate themed snack! healthy Lunch idea pita hummus grape carrots corn puffs
