International Talk Like A Pirate Day - September 19

Arrr Matey!  We are planning some fun activities and treats for International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19).  John Baur and Mark Summers came up with the idea to talk like pirates for a day, and it spread fast when Dave Barry wrote about it in his column in 2002.  For more great pirate ideas, check out this site, an actual talk like a pirate website!  They have an entire list of pirate sites on the left side of their page.  We had fun playing games on this site.  Arrresome!

A few ideas that we've heard about so far: 
Say arrr a lot - to the point of annoying others.
Wear argyle socks.
Eat at Arrrby's.
Click on this link for actual pirate words - love it!
My son had a pirate birthday party a few years ago, so we will be pulling out some fun decor and wearing eye patches!  I'm hoping to plan a scavenger hunt, and may have fish tacos for dinner! 



Check out these great books for inspiration:


Love this ABC adventure...











And one of our favorites by a favorite, David Shannon:
(anything with diapers is usually a hit around here!)






Anyone ever have this kind of a day?

 









Arrr - a pirate's life for me!
