We have become pirate fans this past month.
There is a show on Disney Junior called Jake and the Neverland Pirates. We haven’t actually watched an entire show, but there are two pirate musicians that go by the names of Sharky and Bones who show up in animated form in each episode. Then between shows the two show up in their live-action forms, and perform an original song. This is the part we watch (or just youtube over and over again)! They have catchy little pirate-themed tunes that we like to dance and singalong to.
Here is one of our favorites:
And another favorite:
Ironically, Sharky and Bones are played by Loren Hoskins and Kevin Hendrickson who were members of a family-oriented “pirate rock” band in Portland, Oregon. We LIVE in Portland, Oregon!!!! Why am I just now discovering these guys? I wish I would have known about them before they became big Disney stars and were performing their local concerts. ARGGGGHHH!!
So my boys have pirate hats that I found at Target for $2 each. And then when I was looking at my leftover pool noodle pieces from my latest craft project (pool noodle tic tac toe), I thought, hey, these would make great telescopes!
They are super simple to make and so much fun to role play with! I mentioned before, that pool noodles cut like butter. So I took a 12″ piece of pool noodle (you can buy these at the Dollar Store) and a 2″ round cookie cutter, and twisted the cookie cutter into one end of the noodle.
When it couldn’t go any father, I used a bread knife to cut the outside part of the noodle off. Make sure you cut it where the cookie cutter sits. The cookie cutter will stop the knife from cutting any deeper than needed.
I kept twisting and cutting until I had about a 3″ inches of skinny noodle sticking out.
Oh what a cutie, and what a cute idea. Glad you linked up to the pool noodle party. Do you mind adding our link so others can find the party too. It has been fun seeing all the unique uses of a noodle.

that is totally awesome. my son is currently obsessed with telescopes – which is funny because he can't say the word properly yet. And he'd love this, but pool noodles in the UK aren't hollow. They are solid. I will have to keep looking to see if I can find one. Although I did notice that foam pipe lagging at the hardware store is hollow. that might work. Thanks for the great tut

Childhood is a time of continuous development of the child, his knowledge of the environment. Useful educational toys – children’s telescopes and microscopes – will help to make this period more interesting and productive. They will allow the baby to find answers to various questions, thereby giving an impetus to self-development. I read how to choose my first telescope here – https://fivelittledoves.com/lifestyle/how-to-choose-your-first-telescope-7-tips/.
