Talk Like a Pirate Day

Talk Like a Pirate Day & Pirate Day!

Thursday, September 19

Ahoy Mateys! Hoist up the anchor and sail away with us as we celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day! It’ll be a swashbuckling adventure as we play pirate games, tell tales, and create pirate art! Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a Pretend City life for me!  

*Buy 1 Get 1 admission for those dressed in pirate attire* 

Purpose Behind the Play: dramatic play, language and literacy, writing and imagination exploration, problem solving and gross motor practice 

  • Smart Art (Times Vary)Pirate Play – Children will enjoy decorating a miniature pirate ship and creating their own pirate arghttire in our Art Studio throughout the day. 
  • Sensational Storytime (11:30 am): How to Be a Pirate Little landlubbers get to earn their sea legs on a pirate ship amidst the goofiest pirates ever in this fun, rhyming tale. Afterwards, we’ll practice some of the languages that we learned by reciting some pirate phrases.  
  • Sensational Storytime: (1:30pm-2:30pm): Young Storyteller’s Workshop > Calling all buckaroos to this interactive, creative session presented by our friends at Storymakery. Join us for a fun tale about pirates and adventure. Afterwards its all hands on deck as we color and create our own pirate themed stories.
  • Growing Up Great Games (3:00 pm): Pirate Treasure Hunt Join us in Orange Plaza as we go on a scavenger hunt for the City looking for treasure. Children will learn about the letter X and that when looking for buried treasure, X marks the spot! 

Grown-up TipLet’s Play Pretend! Make-believe play is critical to your child’s development and should be encouraged. Like muscles, children need daily opportunities to flex their imagination and creativity muscles. Give your child a large cardboard box and some crayons and tell them that they can make it into a pirate ship. You will be amazed at what they will create and how long this simple activity will entertain them. 

RSVP: Not required 

Fee: Buy 1 Get 1 Free general admission when a child dresses up in pirate attire.
