Pirate Birthday Party: Treasure Box And Swords

I put my hubby to work with the exacto knife and some cardboard and had him create a treasure box and swords. Each kid got a sword in their "booty bag" (which I'll show you in another post), along with their eye patch. The best part is that after the kids are finished with their sword fights it simply goes in the recycling bin. No need to contribute to a landfill with a bent plastic sword, which you know is bound to happen to plastic swords.

Good job! You may inspire the kids to make other things out of cardboard! And, you might inspire other parents to feel free to cut back on some of that plastic junk in their goody bags!
