On September 19th it was National Pirate Day and the kids were pretty excited about it! Some local places were giving away freebies if you came by dressed as a pirate. We didn't have a costume for everyone and so we had to get creative. The kids really love sitting down together and doing fun little crafts, I knew they would really get a kick out of making their own costumes.
I went through my scrap box of old shirts, fabric and sewing bits to come up with a piratey outfit for everyone! Some eyeliner for the facial hair and we were in business. The kids and I laughed so much that evening, I cannot remember ever laughing so hard before. We drove around gathering and pigging out on our freebies. It was such a fun night that I'm sure the kids will always remember.
One thing to remember is that you don't always have to spend lots of money to make special memories. Kids will remember a fun time no matter what the cost. It's usually just the simple things that are remembered the most. Kind of like when you give your child a new toy and all they want to play with is the box it came in! Maybe it's making them a special sandwich and taking the time to sit there and chat while they eat. It could be coloring a picture together or mixing up a batch of cookies.
Every year we plan to make this a tradition and I'll have my scrap box ready to go for every year. Wonderful childhood memories are one of the best things a parent can pass on to their children. Making memories that last also helps us parents cherish those childhood moments a little bit more.
“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder
