The Saturday Safari kids and I had a blast this past Saturday as we became pirates of the Caribbean! We set sail on our high seas adventure by starting the day talking about all the different varieties of fish you can in the Caribbean! We then let our imaginations run wild as we all designed our very own fish with water colors. No pirate is complete without eye patches and a pirate flag, so each of us made an eye patch and designed our very own flag. Now we looked like real pirates. As the day progressed, we did fun activities and games, all the time learning about the different types of animals that live in the Carribean. The highlight of our pirate day Saturday Safari was Black Beard’s treasure hunt. The kids worked together to solve animal clues that took them all over the museum. In order to be given some of their clues they had to give themselves pirate names and walk the plank. In the end, the kids found their treasure (lots of candy) and were ready to call it a day. There is always something happening at Saturday Safari, so what are you waiting for you scallywags come join us next time!!!
