Over the summer I decided I wanted to throw a pirate play date, so we picked a day after my son's birthday and invited our friends to come over. We let the kids play in the back yard in the swimming pools and we had bubbles and our play set. We were lucky that the weather cooperated and it was perfect weather to be outside.
Many of my pirate supplies came from Wal Mart, Target, and Oriental Trading Company, Dollar Tree, Party City, and Michaels.
Here is a treasure chest I got for the goody bags I we made up for our friends. I had little bags with spy glasses, treasure maps, and other goodies. I also got some bags of Pirate's Booty snack to give each of our little pirates. I will say that I didn't have a very good experience with this inflatable treasure chest from Oriental Trading. The top came with a small hole in it, so it didn't inflate well. It did make a cute prop.
Here is the table with some of the things set up. I got my table cloth and plates from Wal Mart.
This pirate ship and the figures I purchased at Old Navy near their registers. It was a little kit that was $5.00. I purchased the gold coins from Party City.
These are some pirate rubber duckies that Oriental Trading sells that I got to put in the kiddie pools. They were so cute, but they didn't float correctly. It looked like these pirate ducks walked the plank.
One thing I didn't get to take a picture of was the fruit and veggie tray I made. I got small swords for guests to use. Mainly the adults used those since we didn't want the little ones playing with them.
I hope this gives you some ideas if you decide to do a pirate party one day. I think I would like to do this theme again when my kids are already and we can do treasure maps with a scavenger hut.
Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the ocean, matey! Arrrgggghhhh!
