My son is into everything pirate, so when it came to his 3rd birthday party it was no surprise when he said he wanted a Pirate party for his Birthday. Check out some of the Pirate fun!
What People Ate
For food I gathered a few ideas from Pinterest, you can view my board HERE. The crowd favorite were the cannon balls ( sweet and sour meatballs) super simple and easy to make in the crock pot, the kids used the swords to pick them up and they were an instant crowd favorite. The PB&J Fish & Chips were also a hit, each one was served in a little bread loaf box I found at Homegoods. a simple way to serve individual portions.
What People Drank
We enjoyed some Rum ( Hawaiian Punch). You can find paper straws almost anywhere these days I picked up a few at Target and Hobby Lobby, just add to a simple mason jar with a ribbon for easy use.
The Birthday boy loved his treasure box cake, we utilized a local cake baker, can you believe that this cake was only $20! She is an amazing artist that is for sure!
For favors I found the cutest pirate hats and swords at Target. They were very inexpensive, I added a few pirate tattoos and eye patch and put it all in a bucket from Party City. Instant Pirate outfits for our little mateys. Just add a custom favor tag with some striped ribbon. Our sons birthday present from us was a sandbox so we used it to bury a little pirate treasure ( some beads and coins) the little pirates had a great time finding their treasure and loading up their buckets.
Activities / Games
The little Pirates got a chance to walk the plank! I bought a piece of wood from home depot, added a little dark stain and then painted the words walk the plank using craft paint. I used a blue table cloth underneath to act as water and added a plastic shark, the pirates enjoyed a few sword fights on the plank! The pirates also enjoyed playing in the water table and searching for buried treasure in the sandbox.
