This craft is very simple and easy.
Take black cardboard and cut out the shape of a pirate hat. We cut it on the fold so only had to fasten the one side.
I pre-printed 'skull and cross-bones' and let the cubs cut those out as well as other pirate pictures which they pasted onto the hat.
The eyepatch is shaped slightly with a flap at the top which is folded over a thin piece of elastic which goes around the head. The flap can be glued which takes some time to dry or stapled.
As you can see, the cubs had great fun being Buccaneers and Privateers!
