Pirate ship

We took my grandkids to Disney, and my grandson fell in love with the pirates of the Caribbean exhibit, and was running around yelling "argh" all the time (he was two yrs old) so I decided to make a pirate ship out of pieces of scrap wood, when it was finished I gave it to him and he immediately took it in the pool, I almost tried to stop him lol, but I figured hey it was his present, to my surprise, it not only floated but withstood the rough play of a 2 year old, and the only thing that was damaged was a small piece of string. I included a small video of it floating in the basement sink.

  • To survive a 2 year old for hours... must be built like a rock.

  • What a treasure! (ha!) Really, this will be something your grandson will value for years. A beautifully crafted keepsake.
