Throw a Pirate Party for Kids
Pirate parties can be fun around Halloween or for birthdays. I hope this guide gives you some interesting ideas for spicing up your party!
Send out paper treasure maps as invitations to the party! You can make your own using aged paper, or get preprinted maps and stamp them shut with a skull and crossbones on the seal of the envelope.
If you'd like to do a treasure map-making activity with the kids at your party, these skull-emblazoned forms would be a good place to start.
Premade Child Pirate Costumes
Build Your Own Costume
If you'll be wearing shoes at the party, or going out trick-or-treating, pirate boot covers are a great addition! They transform any normal black shoe into a genuine pirate boot by adding a calf-cover and a folded-down cuff, and the strap comfortably on your legs above your shoes.
Lastly, depending on your family's views about weapon toys, a plastic buccaneer sword tucked into a leather belt can make any kid feel like a fearsome pirate.
Even Pirates Accessorize...
These are great for stabbing through fruit, cheese cubes, or little pieces of cake. Little kids are sure to try to fight with them and probably snap them, though, so watch out for pieces left on your floor. And they are, of course, a choking hazard for babies. 7-12 year olds will love them, I can guarantee!
