More Pirate Fun - Pieces of Eight

This afternoon, we learned about pirate treasure and made some of our own pieces of eight! It was a very simple craft.
You need some cardboard (we use a cereal box), pencil, scissors, foil, and a few different sizes lids to trace your circles.
First step is tracing the circles:
Then you cut the circles out of the cardboard, take your foil and cut a piece a little bit larger than your cardboard circle.

You then cover your cardboard circle with the foil (only 1 side of the coin will be covered), take your pencil and draw some designs on your coin.
Here are a few of our pieces of eight:

We also played the Loot game, a game we have had for a long time, and it was fun to play it again.
