Pirate Birthday Party Games and Crafts
Decorate a Mini Treasure Chest
Decorate a treasure chest. Paint and glue on rhinestones, glitter or if you have time to let it dry you could decoupage this with mod podge. Send home a few treasures inside and make it the "goody bag."
Fill a sand table with clean dry sand. Bury plastic bracelets, toy watches, costume rings, plastic gold coins
and other small trinkets you can get at crafts stores, dollar stores or any store
with a toy or party section. Use a sand shovel or a sand sifter and let each child find a few treasures to take home as party favors.
Walk the Plank
Set up a 2 x 4 and have kids "Walk the Plank". For fun put plastic crocodile figures under or a blue tarp (ocean) under the plank.
Pinata's always bring a lot of excitement and children love scrambling for the small treats and toys inside. This too was from
Celebrate Express. It was well made and it took quite a few swings to open it!
