Calling all pirates to an anchors-away pirate themed birthday party!
Every pirate needs a pair of binoculars or a spotting scope! Use paper towel rolls and decorate with markers, sticker, or glue on tissue paper.
You can also have kids make their own compass! Click here for full tutorial.
Make your own Pirate hat is pretty simple to do with construction paper and glue or staples. momstown KW made Arrrr Matey hats at an event and pretended they were shipwrecked.
Play pirates! Arrrrr….! Set up a fort in the family room or in the backyard – equip guests with pirate hats, eye patches, and pirate scopes and let them use their imaginations!
Set up a treasure hunt in a sandbox outside, or inside as a hide and seek game. Make little maps for kids to follow and help them find the treasure! What they discover can be part of their loot too!
Pirate napkins, plates and tablecloth – along with our dressed-up pirates – were a hit at this party! Cover the Table with brown craft paper and tell the kids to "decorate" the treasure map – draw all over the map/tablecloth! Use black balloons to bring the dark pirate theme!
Don't forget adults can get in on the fun and become live 'decor' in your own costumes!
Food & Cake
This 3 year old had pirate cupcakes! Enough for all his friends to enjoy. First decorated with pirate ships and treasure, the guests got to add their own sprinkles and decorations before they ate them!
Have a pirate picnic – land ho!
Little pirates can take home their costumes (hat, scope, eye patch) and their 'treasure' from the hunt!
