Sunnyboy's new pirate boat (and a treasure map)





At the beginning of summer Nozy made Sunnyboy a new pirate boat and it's been a wonderful addition to our garden, along with the outdoor play kitchen and the play house Nozy built in the spring.







We used a page from an old atlas and soaked it with tea to make a treasure map.

  1. I love the idea of staining an atlas map to make it look old. The pirate ship is great. My boys would love it. They used to love playing on the town one.
