Procedure to make the pirate ship

  • To make the base of the pirate ship we need 3 corks.
  • Place the 3 corks next to each other and hook them with a rubber band on one side.
  • Do the same on the other side, in this way the 3 pieces will be perfectly grasped.

  • Now i will do the flag of the pirate ship.
  • I have cut out a piece of eva rubber that measures 8 cm x 9 cm.
  • I'm going to start by drawing the head of the skull with a white marker.
  • Then I'll do the jaw, eyes, and nose.

  • Once the previous parts are colored, I am going to make the bones.
  • I will make a cross first and then at each point a kind of heart.

  • Making the boat flag is very easy, just stick a piece of whasi tape on a skewer stick.
  • Fold it up and trim the beak into a "V" shape.

  • To insert the skewer stick, punch two holes in the pirate flag.
  • Make a hole in the corks and glue the flag with hot silicone.
  • To do the sea I'm going to cut out this rectangle and wave it with blue eva rubber.

  • Once all the sea pieces are glued, I am going to trim the edge with these pinking scissors.
  • Ready, you have finished your pirate ship to play with it in the water.
