Pirate Parties and Party Bags
Pirate parties are one of the most popular themed parties for children up to seven years. We have attended many pirate parties over the years for birthday girls and birthday boys. They are always a fun party the children thoroughly enjoy.
I think Pirate Parties work really well particularly with pre-schoolers and the early school years. Pirate Parties work well for mixed age and gender groups. To ease the burden on parents the pirate theme can be extended to accommodate a few princess dresses.
Pirate Costumes and Cake
Pirate costumes for girls and boys are easy to source. They can be as simple as a pair of trousers and a t-shirt or an eye patch to very reasonably priced costumes with hats, swords and swashbuckling skirts or trousers. Supermarkets and shops regularly include pirate-themed birthday cakes and Pinterest is awash with easy to make (….& not so easy) birthday cakes and party food. Pinterest also lists free, printable items to add to little cakes and sandwiches for your pirate themed party food.
Pirate Party Games
Most young children love an excuse to dress up, mix it with a party and the children throw themselves into the theme. Traditional party games are easily given a pirate theme twist. Gold chocolate coins are a popular and relevant addition as well as being a cheap gift to reward winning individuals and teams. No matter how small your venue may be a treasure hunt is always popular and they are easy to adapt to the age of your guests.
Naturally, if a pirate party is a popular party theme there are many party accessories and party bag gifts to suit all age ranges. Pirate themed party gifts are available in many designs suitable for very young children through to older children

Pirate Pre-filled Party Bags
A fun alternative to a party bag a treasure chest with a lucky dip for “Pirate Treasure”. Storage boxes in the pattern of treasure chests are available from discount stationery shops. Or, if you have the time and skill a cardboard box can be styled as the base of a treasure chest. Alternatively, cheat and cover a cardboard box in bright jewel coloured wrapping paper.
