Are your kids excited about next week’s release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides?
Since my two little girls are ages 3 and 6, Captain Jack isn’t exactly on their radar. But Janice’s 9 year old boy Jackson loves Captain Jack even though he hasn’t seen the movies.
How Old Should Kids Be?
Personally, I think all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies seem pretty scary for young kids. One site that I often check for feedback on appropriate ages for movies is Common Sense Media.org and they rated Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End as “iffy for ages 12–13″.
What do you think?
- Will your kids be watching Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides?
- Did they watch the previous Pirates of the Caribbean movies? If so, how old were they?
- How old do you think children should be to watch Pirates of the Caribbean?
Free Kids Pirate Activities
Even if your child is too young to head out to the theater to watch Pirates of the Caribbean, they’ll likely see images of Captain Jack everywhere and will catch on to the pirate craze.
One way to let young kids get in on the pirate action, is to engage them with pirate activities, crafts, printables and other free downloads.
