Hello ! How lovely and thank you for choosing our plastic-free "Pirate Ship" sticker set. Like all our BADALA products, these have been developed with children, for children, and will transform any cardboard box into a sustainable toy in no time at all, which will fire your kids' imagination and keep them busy for hours.
This sticker edition was produced especially for ADLI SUISSE and is currently available exclusively in Switzerland.
You can make great pirate ships out of cardboard boxes of all sizes. For the following example we have chosen a large cardboard box. To transform this you need:
- Shipping box
- Wallpaper knife or cutter (to be used by adults only)
- Or alternatively scissors
- Wing clip
- String or cord (if you want to make the anchor moveable)
Turn the flaps inside out.
Always turn the side of the box you want to stick upside down, this way you can nicely adhere the stickers you put on. Apply the stickers to each side of the box according to your mood and imagination. There is no right or wrong 🙂
This makes every single pirate ship unique.
If you prefer a movable steering wheel, glue the steering wheel to an extra piece of cardboard. Otherwise, simply turn any inner flap into a wheelhouse by gluing the steering wheel there.
TIP: Single flute cardstock is best for cutting out for delicate children's hands 🙂
Cut out the steering wheel and anchor.
Use a wing clamp to attach the control wheel to an inside flap.
As a variation, you can also make a movable wheelhouse. In this version we also glued the parrot on an extra piece of cardboard and attached it with tape to the inside of the box.
At the anchor you thread a string and knot it.
Your fantasy journey is ready to go 🙂 .
Glue the saber, coins + gold bars to an extra piece of cardboard and cut them out. This way you can make your own treasure chest.
Pirates in sight!
