Pirate Birthday Party Ideas

With movies like Pirates of the Caribbean capturing the attention people of all ages, and not just young people, hosting a birthday party making use of pirate party supplies and kids pirate costume is a exciting and preferred concept. This party doesn’t have to be exclusively styled to any certain pirate movie art cartoon, but just be with regards to pirates and it will still be a hit. Here are some things to take into consideration when planning and setting up your birthday party using pirate party supplies.

Fill in pirate designed birthday invitations: these can be store-bought, or you can make them with your children. There are also a variety of Internet sites with totally free printable pirate invitations that are full color, or black and white if you prefer to color them in and decorate them with your kids.
Make it a costume party: on the invitation cards, as that every guest come in a pirate costume. See to it that you, as well as all your staff, are also dressed in a pirate costume. That way, the adults in attendance can have just as much amusement as the kids.

If this is a summer party, think outside the box: if you have an in-ground pool, ask that each guest bring their bathing suits and a towel with them. This way, you can have some pool games, and you can pretend that the kids are walking off the plank using your diving board. Apply theater props: in {addition to pirate party supplies and a pirate costume dawned by each guest, consider going to a theater supply company to see if you can rent out a treasure chest, some legitimate looking plastic swords, some colorful parrots, and maybe even a boat anchor.

When packing up the loot bags for this birthday occasion, there are several add-ons you can pick from at big box stores, the dollar store, and on the Internet. Purchase eye patches, plastic shiny coins, periscopes, and compasses. As soon as you can have the funds for the added expense in your budget, take advantage of using sacks made up of twill or tweed and, with black fabric or acrylic paint, stencil a skull and cross bones on to each one. That, along with the pirate costume, will bring a lot of enjoyment and grace to the celebration.

Get some large sheets of drawing paper, one for each party guest. Two or three days before the birthday party, stain each piece of paper in tea one at a time and let them dry fully. Take some brown rubber stamp ink (some people refer to it as distress ink), and wipe it along the edges of the dried sheets.

Create treasure maps on each of these sheets of paper. Cover up items throughout your home, or if your front yard is big enough, do this outdoors. Draw out how many paces each guest must take in order to track down these treasures. You can step this project up by getting a stamp in the shape of a foot to make the route on the map, and stickers or drawings displaying all the areas where the treasures are concealed.
