Pirates Ahoy!

Pirate treasure

Ahoy me hearties! It's time to hoist the Jolly Roger, gather your crew and go hunting for treasure.

In these pirate-themed activities first you'll be designing your own flag and inventing shipmates. After that you can draw your own secret treasure map for others to follow as they hunt down your stash of gold doubloons.

What you will need:

  • The activity sheets. These can be viewed on a mobile or computer, or can also be printed.
  • Paper
  • Pens or pencils for drawing and colouring
  • Treasure! You can print our template coins, or simply use coins, toys or other items from around your home as your treasure.
