The first thing to do when you start this project is to paint the walls of the house in blue and then to purchase a bed that looks like a pirate ship. You can find one if you try hard enough, but you can also improvise something and just add a few boards that will make the present bed look like a ship.

Then try to decorate the whole room with objects linked to the same theme: pirate clocks, bedsheets, pillows, curtains, carpets, etc. You can purchase them on the Internet or spend some quality time with your child handcrafting them together. The old toys can be added a bandana or a patch on the eye, a striped t-shirt and they will immediately turn into pirates.

It’s a great idea to place a world map on the wall or, if you are a bit skilled in drawing, to draw a treasure map on the bedroom wall, with a big red X to mark the “treasue” and skulls on the way.Use a board or some other kind of sign to place on the door and write your son’s name there, mentioning he’s a pirate – “Pirate Ben’s bedroom”

I would love it and I’m 34 ! So I can guarantee you that you will enjoy all this time and will get closer to your kid this way. Have fun when doing this!
