How to extend the magic
Why not make up your own pirate adventure! Make up some good pirate names. Imagine you’re sailing on the high seas and you spot a desert island in the distance. Will you find any buried treasure? Pretend to dig for treasure. What have you found – some gold coins? Count out your imaginary gold coins together before you put them in a bag, get back on your pirate ship and sail off to look for another treasure island.
