Ahoy! "Talk Like a Pirate Day" is today!
We've celebrated this holiday for the past few years. I really have no idea what this "holiday" is supposed to be about, but the kids find it a fun day to be a little silly. Our Wednesday afternoons and evenings are pretty busy, so we started our fun a little early yesterday afternoon.
Little J is starting a science unit on the skeletal system at school, so....we had some fun with a skeleton scavenger hunt I found at Target in the Halloween section. It's a game that comes with two puzzle skeletons. You hide the pieces and group the kids into teams to find and build their skeleton. Little J played by himself and Sassyfras and Juiciness played as a team. Once they assembled their puzzles, we named the bones on the puzzle and then talked about some of the missing bones.
For dinner I made fish tacos (the kids will eat the fish, but not as tacos). Dear husband and I thought they were great though! They're pretty easy to make too. I used red snapper sprinkled with lime juice and taco seasoning and sautéed it in some olive oil. We top our tacos with more lime juice, fresh cilantro, shredded cheese, guacamole, and tomatoes.
Have a great day Matey!
