Get some pirate party supplies plus boys and girls pirate costumes and you've got yourself a ship and a crew...figuratively speaking! Now all you need is a gang plank, a buried treasure and some maps with a big X that marks the spot where the buried treasure is hidden...plus some loot and doubloons...and you've got just what you need to throw the best pirate party of the year. There are also pink pirate party ideas just for girls pirate fun!
Pirate Party Supplies can be personalized...that's always fun. Your child's picture on some of the party supplies...the plates, cups, favor boxes, invitations, a centerpiece and even the pirates birthday banner...it's really fun to use these personalized supplies for a kids party whether it's for Halloween or a birthday. Take a look at them while you are shopping.
Boys pirate costumes and girl's pirate costumes can be as simple as an eye patch and a bandana. You can make a pirate's cutlass out of cardboard covered with aluminum foil. Make your own treasure maps, bury your own treasure, hide extra treasure clues around the house or yard and plan some buccaneering games that resemble life on the pirate ship.
Get some fun costume ideas for kids pirate parties! Those kids will have so much fun...you can get a couple outfits and use them in a Pirate Relay Race Game. Form two teams, put 2 bags of pirate clothes across the room, in another area put a big X on the floor...the goal of the game is to have every player on each team go to the bag one at a time, put on the pirate clothes, run around to a big X on the floor, go back to the bag, take off the pirate clothes and go back to the line...then the next player goes...until everyone has had a turn. The first team done is the winner...but everyone gets a prize! Take pictures during this game. Kids pirate parties are a great source of fun pictures.
Get Pirate Names Teach Pirate Speak
First things first...name your crew and then teach your newly appointed crew some pirate speak. That's easy to do and some of them may know a few words already. Arrr, Grog, Grub, Capt'n, Matie, are just a few new words you can use. Why not make your own pirate party invitation and write the words on the back...tell everyone if they plan on joining the crew, they must learn these words. Fill up that invite with this new pirate language...we'll call pirate speak. This will certainly build up a good amount of anticipation for your party and it will help everyone get into the pirate mood!
Kids pirate parties need pirate names so try to make one for each child...Carl Blackbird Wiggins, Black Tooth Dan, One Eyed Chas, Mean Gray Beard, it's easy to make up names for kids pirate parties...just use your imagination. Gun Powder Joe, Mary Meanie Beans, Ship Shape Sue, Wally Dolly May...see!
Another fun pirate invitation idea is to send a treasure map with an X marking your house or there is the super invite...The Invitation in a Bottle...you can tell I like that one a lot because I used bold print to tell you about it! I just think the invitation/message in a bottle thing is cool and I bet those kids will too.
So...one way or another the kids know there is a pirate party and it's at your house. If you put an RSVP on the invite you should be hearing back from your guests soon so you can count how many kids will be attending. Always have extra everything because not everyone RSVPs. IT would be great if they did, but they don't. The worst thing at a kids party is not having enough party favors, game prizes, pirate costumes or food...so I always plan on two more than I have on my count list. If I am wrong we eat some extra pirate food and have an extra favor box or two. If I am right...I have two happy, happy little pirates and that makes it worth it to me.
Kids Pirate Parties Supply Shopping From Home
A big plus of party shopping and costume shopping online is that you don't have to go out, in the crowds, after work or on a Saturday. You can sit at home on your computer and quickly place an order, see all the fun stuff as you pick it out and pay for it with a credit card...just like you would if you went to the store, except without the line of people ahead of you. Sounds like fun, and you can do it with a cup of Joe, soda or even wine at your side.
This photo prop is perfect for taking a picture of each of your party guests...I mean crew...and getting a photo to send home with a thank you note! A picture says a thousand words and this one will show how much fun this kids pirate party was!
