My kids, especially my boys, love playing pirates. They have toy pirate ships and love a good treasure hunt. For our week of fun, I knew some pirate themed activities would be perfect for them!
The purpose of the Summer Weekly Activities series is to provide busy moms with some simple and fun themed activities for summer. Instead of trying to do all of the things every single day, I have found it to be helpful and freeing to do one fun activity a day. Some weeks we may do all five activities and other weeks just one, but having a list of activities on hand has helped us thrive during the summer.
If you want all 11 weeks of summer activities NOW, you can purchase the entire PDF pack for $10 in my shop. It also includes some bonuses!
