I am having a birthday party for my son on June 21st. He will be turning 7 and wants to have a Pirate party with a treasure hunt. He has invited about 24 kids (hopefully they won't ALL come). I need help! Can anybody give me ideas for games, food, ect?
One of my favorite websites for kids birthday party planning is www.birthdaypartyideas.com. It is a collection of posts of individial's party ideas listed by theme. I can always piece together great parties from other people's creatvity!
Here's a link to the Pirate Theme:
Pin the Patch on the Pirate or Parrot on the Pirate's shoulder. Hide chocolate coins and do a pieces of 8 hunt. How about "capture the flag" with a jolly roger flag?
FOR TREASURE HUNT CLUES: When prisoners are unruly we make them take a walk(hide a clue under a plank)
A pirate's bird might want one(hide a clue in a cracker box)
Seven year olds are old enough to design their own pirate flag. Have blank paper and markers for an arrival activity. At my grandson's party the kids colored their own "loot bags" and then carried them on the treasure hunt where there was a prize at every clue location for every kid. That was the loot bag that they then took home with them. The treasure hunt went on so long that they had to take a juice break in the middle! First clue inside the house, next clue at the edge of the yard, next clue inside, next outside, etc. Try to make the clues ryhme. And give them an adult pirate leader to follow from clue to clue. It helps. The final chest, of many, had a pinata inside, pre-cut to make it easier to break. Also, there was a cardboard two dimensional ship with holes in its side for a bean bag toss. AARRRR!! Have fun, matey!

That sounds like a cute idea! Why not get a bounce house that resembles a pirate's ship? It could be the thing that they fall into when they "walk the plank".
