Aha Me Hearties!

Today we had a pirate themed birthday party for Toby who’ll be 7 on Thursday. The kids all had a go helping to rebuild the pirate ship tree house that had fallen into disrepair since being built a few years ago.

Dave brought down a trailer load of larch off cuts that he’d sawn up for making Thunderbox Compost Toilets and we all set to work throughout the day to start the rebuild. It was great to see so many little hands on deck helping to create the structure in between pirate themed play – including voluntarily walking the plank!

I certainly learnt a bit about woodwork and construction and I think the kids came away with a good experience. Hopefully we’ll be able to finish it soon and I can post pictures of the finished ship.
