YO HO HO! Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen! There be a pirate hop today for Talk Like A Pirate Day with booty, loot, doubloons, coins, stash and pieces of eight. That’s what ye lads & lasses will find that’s different from the other hops. It’ll be worth ye while to hop through each page this time because ye can win some serious loot so don’t try to hornswaggle your way out early! Visit every page, savvy?
Me little 4 year old Buccaneer got a girl and a boy pirate. The bow, bandana and eye patch are made of Stretch Island Fruit Leather. The skeletons are Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with almond butter & jam. Me found the cookie cutter in Target last year. It’s one of me favorites. Above ye sandwiches are grape tomatoes on bones from Davy Jones’ locker. ARG! At the top left is me parrot, a gold doubloon and some raspberries, and at the top right are blueberries, a strawberry X marks the spot for the booty packed in ye trusty ol Easy Lunchboxes.
What good be a little pirate if she’s got the scurvy? Had to send along some orange slices with Jolly Roger pick, piel de sapo and mango slices surrounding for more Vitamin C. In the tin be So Delicious coconut milk raspberry flavored yogurt packed in ye new Happy Tiffin bento container. A special thanks to me trusty bento pal for the extra pirate picks!
Blimey if I don’t have another little scallawag to feed. I made her a mini pirate sammy with a Stretch Island bandana, eye patch, smile and a candy eye. At the top left are blueberries, a treasure map and a pirate doubloon. The top right are raspberries and at the bottom right more orange slices to fend off the scurvy with a sticker on top. All ye rations are packed in a LunchBots Quad. Both lassies had
rum ice water in their CamelBak kid bottles.
HERE ARE YE DIRECTIONS: Every Blogger Buccaneer in this here Hop has a piece of the treasure map! You’ll need to “collect” each piece and put them together in the right order to find the treasure! You’ll want some parchment and a quill, to keep a log with each clue and each number, because there are 39 scurvy pirates running amok with 39 pieces o’ the map to collect! 37 pieces will guide you to the hidden treasure (by spelling out the URL where you can enter to win!) and there are 2 bonus pieces with the “secret passwords” to get two chances to win some pirate booty!
This here’s my piece o’ the map! Good luck, Mateys!
Ye landlubbers better get to checking the other blogs for pieces of eight until ye solve the riddle what will get ye the booty. Be sure to click the pirate button below to see what Cap’n Cristi with BentOnBetterLunches
