Some Sensory Play – Pirate Style!
Are your kids Jake and the Never Land Pirate fans? My kids love all things Disney. And we LOVE family movie nights, too. So when we heard about a new Family Night Special Event coming up this Sunday on Disney Channel, we were all ears (get it… “Mickey Ears?!”). We can’t wait to snuggle on the couch with our popcorn and watch the brand new Jake and the Never Land Pirates – Battle for the Book! (The show premieres on Sunday October 26 at 6pm EST/ 5 CST on Disney Channel if you’d like to tune in, too.) Even better: to get us in the adventuring mood, LEGO® sent us their awesome new LEGO® DUPLO® Jake and the Never Land Pirate Ship Set, too. We decided to give a sensory element to our pirate adventure. Check it out…
Our LEGO® DUPLO® Jake & the Never Land Pirates Sensory Play
First, the kids and I went on a “treasure hunt” in the local party supply store and dollar store for some golden coins, golden jewels, blue glass marbles, and dried split peas. Everything cost about $10 and will last for lots more sensory play in the future, too.
We used the glass marbles as our ocean and the green split peas as our island. And buried some of our gold coins in the split peas and sprinkled in our jewels. Sawyer found a couple little sea creature toys in his room that he tossed in the “ocean,” too.
Then we got started building our LEGO® DUPLO® Pirate Ship and Island. The big LEGO® DUPLO® and clear directions made it easy for all of my kids (ages 2 through 7) to work together on.
Finally, Jake and Captain Hook set sail for their battle in the sensory sea! J.C. especially got a kick out of the little launcher on the pirate ship that shot a cannon across the sea.
