Kids Pirate Party

Apr 29, 2008
Pirates have amazed children for all ages. And a kids pirate party especially with a treasure hunt can be one of the most successful parties you could ever have, especially if you spend a little time looking for some great pirate birthday party ideas.

Some specific items will be needed to pull this party off, but a few organization skills will help a lot when it comes your big party day. Of course any time kids are involved you need to plan for the unexpected. Once you this, a pirates life really can be for you.

Get the party started with the right invitations. A great invitation should start with a pirate's map. You can let "x" mark the spot for the party. Give the date and the time and make sure to let everyone know they should dress in their best pirate outfit. Knowing the pirate theme well ahead of time gives everyone a chance to pick out their best pirate garb. A neat rhyme can finish off the invitation something like "ho hum, a bottle of rum, Tim turns nine and we'll have a fine time".

Decorations can be easy for a pirate's birthday party. You'll want to make your area look as much like a pirate ship as possible. A pirate birthday party is best held outdoors whenever possible. This way you can find some great places to bury treasure for your treasure hunt. Of course, if you can't do it outdoors, you'll just have to be a little more creative indoors.

There are almost unlimited games for pirate themed parties. The best activity, of course, is the treasure hunt. Start out by handing out clues explaining that there is a treasure map that you have divided into 4 pieces. The first clue will point to the first piece, and that will have a special clue to the next piece and so on. While all the kids are doing the treasure hunt, you'll have time to put together the refreshments.

After the kids have all the pieces to the map, they can go on the actual pirate treasure hunt to find the buried treasure. You can do an individual hunt or divide the kids into teams. Don't forget pin the peg-leg on the pirate and "walk the plank" for the younger kids, of course, assuming you have a pool and all the kids can swim.

These are just a few pirate birthday party ideas. Just take a little time to think about it and you'll think of loads more. Just make sure your little "pirate" has a day to remember.
