Love this board!

Thanks for all of the inspiration and help! I thought I'd post SOME of what I've made for the trip.








Welcome Letter from Jack Sparrow and Pirate Oath


Autograph bags


Treat notes from characters


Pirates League Invitation


Star Tours Passport (to keep track of all of our destinations)


Drivers Licenses for the Tomorrowland Speedway

You can add an eye patch, a bandana, fake ear-ring and a sword. A skull and cross bones tshirts or a Disney PoC one. The publisher Dk have a Pirate book in their eyewitness series that is educational, that we have at home. Amazon has loads of fun pirate books. There is some great PoC Lego out at the moment too which keeps little people busy when you are back in your room. Pirate balloons to decorate your room. A bedroom door hanger (surrender your booty at the door, or no landlubbers permitted) print and laminate (makes a good souvinerr for home). I've seen basic skulls and cross bones bracelet kits that kids could make up in the room and then they have something to wear at the parks and take home. Skull and crossbones flag for the room wall. Skull and crossbones pillow case. Pirate snap cards or top trumps. (I wish I'd added more to my pirate bag now!)

I Made a pirate passport (more of an activity book). I decorated it with clip art and lovely DISigns from here.

Add a photo of your 'pirate', other passport information: age' name of ship, job on ship, favourite treasure.
Then i added colouring pages, crosswords and wordsearches etc with a pirate theme. I made a pocket for a treasure map and printed out a blank map for DS to decorate himself. I also made pirate pendants from DISigns printede onto paper, laminated and then corded (won't last ages, but they are fun)

Websites for pirate printables to make your own pirate activity book:
http://printables4kids.com/
http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/pirates/printables.htm
http://printables.kaboose.com/pirate-printables.html
http://family.go.com/disney/pkg-disn...s-and-recipes/ (I wanted to make the voodoo doll from this site, but ran out of time- maybe next time!)
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/pirates.php (I Made a few activity books for our trip, ad I really liked the America homeschool stuff that uses lap books, as the activities were engaging to keep DS busy, but they were educational at the same time)

I printed the passport on a5 paper and then added a plastic sheet front and back and spiral binded it all.
love your ideas

Yes, I made that one. It's kind of based on the one they had on the Star Tours website a couple of years ago, but they took it down. Last time we went, my kiddos loved the ride and obsessively tried to hit all of the destinations, but we were never quite sure we got them all

My daughter and I worked on these projects together. I printed and ironed; she glittered and trimmed the shirts for my granddaughters. This was my first time trying something like this and it wasn’t hard at all. It did take a lot of work and time but it was so very worth it! We got a lot of compliments on the shirts and autograph books from cast members and characters. And best of all my granddaughters loved them!






Love it!!! Where did you get the "We're going to Disney" Disign? And what was used to put the glitter on? Thanks!

Thank you! The "we're going to Disney" is a disign by Milliepie. See post 237 on page 16 of this thread for the link to the disign and how my daughter did the glitter on our shirts.

Does anyone know where to get letters for character meals that are similar to Natalie's DISigns? I love the designs, but it seems like you can't get them customized anymore.

I love the mickey head good treat cards. Where did you get those from? I have looked and can't find anything.

Thanks for your help!

I got the Buzz Lightyear treat card from Natalie's photobucket (she has 20 or so different ones on there). For the others, I got the various Mickey heads from Milliepie's 4Shared account and added the notes on my own.

I think Natalie has lots of blank invites on her photobucket, so you could just download those and personalize them on your own (if you know how. If not, I think Dolly has a thread around here somewhere that tells how to personalize in Word if you don't have photoshop)
