Strangely enough, a small boy named Ethan just was using the mixer dough hook as his pirate's hook....
I will have to make him this!

We are going on a cruise that has a (very crowded )pirate night party and I have had to tell my son no to taking his hard plastic (potentially deadly in his hands or on it...) pirate hook..This may win back some points if I can figure this out! Thank you so much for sharing!
