Making plans for a kids pirate party is almost as fun as the party itself. When guests arrive, you can hand them red sashes they can wrap around their waist and homemade "pirate hooks" made from solo cups and aluminum foil. Pirate Eye patches can be handed out, or have the kids arrive already dressed in a Kids Pirate Costume.
Colors used for decorating the perfect kids pirate birthday party include dark purple, black, gold and red. Use your imagination to create fun decorations like signs pointing the way to various Caribbean destinations, Beware of Pirates signs and other clever decorations. Large boxes make great pirate ships for the kids to play in, painting them to look like ships, with a pirate jolly roger flag to fly on top.
Pirate themed snacks can be served. Pretzels make wonderful masts for small pirate ships, and slices of cheese make great sails. Hot dogs can be used as the ship, served in small paper containers similar to cupcake papers, with goldfish surrounding the hot dog ship.
Pirate themed cakes are always a hit and can be made to look like treasure chests, complete with gold coins, gold wrapped candies, candy necklaces and other pirate booty inside. Cakes in the shape of a pirate hat also help guests get into the pirate party mood.
Be sure the birthday child is dressed in an adorable kids pirate costume, boys costumes and girls pirate costumes are available to make the birthday child feel special on their special day. Have pirate themed music playing in the background, and let the little ones pillage and plunder to their hearts content.
Pirate themed games are fun and add extra excitement to the party. Games like treasure hunt games are great, when made similar to a scavenger hunt, or make them so party goers receive clues about where a treasure is hidden, then have them work together to find the hidden treasure. Pin the eye patch on the pirate is fun as well. The idea is to be creative and make this a special pirate birthday party little mateys will never forget.
