This simple Pallet Pirate Ship Sand Pit is easy to make and would be a wonderful place to let a child's imagination run wild! I made this pirate ship from found wood, an old washing line, a pillow case and some nails and screws.
Pallet Pirate Ship Sand Pit:
First, disassemble a pallet. Next, create a triangular shape to create a ship's bow. Mount a pallet stringer to create a ship's mast. Next, build a low box, and a lid to cover it. This will form the center deck of the ship. A third pallet can be transformed into a rear section of the ship for a high point to look for land lubbers! Ahoy! Hoist the mast! Arrrrrgh!
