Pre-K Pirate Storytime


Games

  • What's a pirate's favorite letter in the alphabet?  Arrrrrr.  Practice talking like a pirate:  arggh, aye, me hearty, belay that!
  • Bring your mascara pencil to work, or get out the facepaints, and draw some curly moustaches on your attendees. 
  • End the storytime by having them "walk the plank" right out the door.
