Pirate Knots and Dancing

Ahoy there! Here is our sixth lesson in our pirate series.

Every pirate needs to know how to tie knots.  Get some shoe strings and teach your child how to tie their (or your) shoes.  To make it more piratey and get more practice, get a meter of rope, and learn to tie a granny knot around a chair leg, or around your ship’s mast or flag pole.  Remember the old sailor’s adage:  “If you can’t tie knots, tie lots!”  (Be sure to put the rope away when you stop supervising though, please.)

Ready to dance a hearty sailor’s jig? Sing and dance along to Lisa-Marie’s favourite pirate song (2019 GAP children will remember this super jaunty tune too): Piraten Tanzen So (also on Spotify).
