Pirate birthday party invitation cards

The first thing to do when you plan on hosting pirate birthday parties for kids or even any other kind of party is to make a list with the persons you invite.

If you plan a pirate birthday party for kids as well as an adult pirate party later in the evening, I’d suggest to make two lists: one with the kids you’re expecting to see at the kids birthday party and one with your friends who don’t have any kids; whenever you have some. The reason behind this is that you won’t send a kids birthday party invite to for an adult party to grownups who do not have children.

So in order to ease the invitation process, you’re going to an invite for the kids along with a PS asking their parents as to whether they’ll attend the adult party (or party for everyone); which you will host in the beginning of the evening. Give the date, time, address whenever you invite some persons who never came to your house and ask your guests to dress in a pirate costume for more fun.

Next will be your invites for adults without children: send them another type of pirate themed invitation card.

Remember to add an RSVP to all invitations so that you know the number of guests who will attend both parties; this will allow to ease the organization process.

Now that your invitation cards are sent, you can plan your parties separately.

Tips for pirate birthday parties for children

Depending on how old are the kids who will attend your pirate party, and if they’re in an age when they still need an afternoon nap or not, you’re going to plan the party between 1 PM and 4 PM.

The youngest the kids, the shortest will be the party as they’re getting quickly tired.

In any case, you’re going to decorate the home for this party.

If you’re on a budget, a Pirate birthday party set along with pirate party favors an a birthday pirate themed pinata will work wonders. However, if you have enough funds, you’re going to decorate the rooms where you hold the party as well; this helps set the ambiance and you can keep them as they are for the party later in the evening.

Nowadays, retailer merchants do things very well, so you can get sets designed especially for pirate birthday parties for kids and related to the genre of your kid: there are party sets for girls and party sets for boys.

Planning pirate party activities

Plan a pirate treasure hunt

Pirate Pinata

A great way to take pleasure from pirate birthday parties for kids is by planning some pirate treasure hunt.

Planning such a game is quite easy: if you run a search on the Internet, you’re going to find sites which provide treasure maps that you can print out or you can even get one from an online store; which you can personalize afterwards.

Spread a few clues throughout the house, and locate them on the treasure map with crosses as you don’t want the kids to know the answer before they started to guess what the clues would be.

For example, you can place as many pirate tattoos as there are kids in the living room, once they discovered the tattoos, they should try to find the second clue, some pirate hats, for example, then the third one and so on until they get to the treasure chest.

What could the treasure be? What about a pirate pinata you would have placed in the garage?

The first kid arrived is the one who will have the advantage to beat the pinata and all candies and gifts will be divided between all kids.

Hold a pirate costume contest

Pirate Bubble Gumball Machine

Another great way to bring the fun to your pirate birthday party for kids would be to hold a pirate costume contest.

Each guest should vote for their favourite pirate costume – not theirs, of course – and, since you’re a sweet heart, all contestants would win a prize in the end.

The kind of prize all kids will certainly enjoy is a bubble gumball machine that they will bring back home and cherish forever!

With the Pirate Bubble Gumball Machine you will revive the pleasure of using coins to get those gumballs, just turn the crank and get the balls. Gumballs aren’t included in the machine (6 oz.) and should be bought separately. Turn the crank and gumballs roll out.

More pirate birthday party activities

When it comes to finding activities to do on pirate birthday parties for kids, the possibilities are almost endless.

Check the weather before hosting such a party and if its quite sunny and hot, fill the backyard pool with water or get an pirate inflatable activity park and let the little ones enjoy the pleasure of water games.

Once again, if weather allows outdoor activities, get a pirate themed sandbox from which the kids will take a lot of pleasure!

Another option would be to teach the kids how to talk like a pirate. They certainly will take joy in learning a new kind of vocabulary! This activity is one to which adults may take part, though.

Whatever your birthday party activities, with a pirate theme, you make sure to have a strong theme and one of the most entertaining birthday parties ever.
