Learning to speak in a silly voice like the Captain
Pretending to be like Captain Fiercy-Fidget
Singing a lullaby to the sea monster
Finding lots of different animals in the pictures
As part of the sessions the children were also given the opportunity to make their own pirate hats. There were stickers, glitter, glue and crayons everywhere and some really super hats emerged.
One group of children were at the session as part of a birthday party treat, and that made it even more special.
I would like to thank Sam Hayden (Events and Marketing Manager) for inviting me and organising the sessions and also to David and Elaine who were the volunteers at the Park who helped with the craft activities.
Parents had the opportunity to purchase books from the gift shop and I enjoyed signing copies and answering questions about being an author. The children had been asked to think about pirate names and I was asked to inscribe two of the books to Dangerous Daniel and Mechanical Matthew (a robotic pirate apparently!).
Sam has told me that she’s received really positive feedback about the sessions and I am looking forward to returning to do more in the future.
