Best part - I didn't have to do any preparation for it. We got the chance to try out My First Pirate Treasure Kit from Alex Toys. This kit comes with all you need to go on a pirate treasure hunt (including the treasure) and even throws in some facts about pirates.
The first thing you need to do, of course, is be properly attired. Kay put on the eye patch and head scarf and practiced her best, "Arrrggg!" She was ready.
She was pretty excited when she uncovered the first flecks of gold.
What would otherwise have been a boring, lazy summer day turned out to be pretty fun. Although Kay did have to remind me, "Okay, you can stop talking like a pirate now." Oops!
