Each year for the boys’ birthdays I make them a poetry box. This year A had a pirate themed birthday and so the poetry box is also pirate themed.
The box is a covered blank matchbox. I used one of the birthday napkins and some decoupage glue to cover the outside.
It was then left to dry.
We wrote the poem on paper and stuck on some more of the napkin pictures to decorate it.
We wrote a birthday message in the base of the box and wrapped it up to give to him.
Here he is sharing his birthday poem with Papa.
