Pirate Story Puppets

These Pirate Story Puppets are the perfect way to help your little one continue with their creative playtime and tell awesome stories! 

One of the most imaginative phases that my little boy went through was when he was obsessed with pirates. It was so cute because he would run all over with his play sword and eye patch pretending like he was the captain of the great sea!

Pirates are the best to pretend play with because they can go on captivating adventures and also come face to face with a sword fighting the enemy.

It is so much fun when the kids get to play with their very own crafts that they make because it adds a level of creativity when they make their pirates what they envision in their minds. This will make their storytelling even more exciting and perfect. We even loved including these Funny Pirate Sayings during our storytime. They made everyone laugh and the kids thought they were very clever. It is the perfect element to add to their pirate adventure stories. 

When my little boy was going through his pirate phase, I would include these Hilarious Pirate jokes in his lunchbox and he would come home and tell me that his friends thought that they were so funny. He made sure to let me know when I forgot one! 

Give these super cool Pirate Story Puppets a try! I know your kids will love them.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use hot glue to attach the puppets. If you use hot glue to attach the puppets to the popsicle sticks, they may hold better. 
  • Change their shirt colors. If you want to personalize your puppets, use any color you want to make them look exactly like you want them to. 

More Fun With Pirates!

After your kids have had fun with their puppets, they are sure going to enjoy these yummy Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs. My kids love them and they are the perfect snack after they’ve worn themselves outperforming their stories! 

I also know that your kids will love this book that will tell them all about How to Be a Pirate. Once they’ve learned how they will be sure to enjoy their story puppets even more! 

Another great way to add even more to their stories is to add other awesome mythical creatures like our Mixed Media Mermaid Art, or other cool sea creatures like this Papercraft Octopus
