Pirate Party Games and Ideas

Pirate ahoy! …. it's party time….

This is the perfect theme for so many occasions, kids of all ages, girls and boys especially, love to dress up in costumes and play games.

In fact, I know a few adults that like to dress up in costumes too!

Costume Parade.

Dressing up in a costume is not an option for this party. I doubt you will hear many complaints from the guests.

Be clear on your invitation that a costume to suit this theme, should be worn. You can order costumes online, or make your own if you're creative.

A good idea is to have a dress up box of extra clothes and props like hats, plastic swords, parrots and eye patches. Your guests can add to their costumes or borrow pieces that are missing from their own!

Once everyone is dressed up, why not have a costume parade so everyone can show off their party costume. Don't forget to take lots of pictures!

Treasure Hunt Party Ideas.

This party will definitely need a good ol' treasure hunt. Use these Treasure Hunt Blister CardBiology Games) to create the perfect treasure hunt either inside or outside your house.

Easy to set up and play simply use the treasure chest and coins as the bait as you hide the included cards in various places around your house and in your yard. Hide the cards and then have your friends follow the clues to find the hidden treasure. The hunt can be done over and over again.

If you want some special candy as treasure , there is a wide range to choose from at Candy.com you will find them under their heading "Occasions" then scroll to Pirate Candy.

The Captain's Party Supplies

Make sure you have all your paper cups, plates and napkins ready for the yummy food. There are lots of Pirate designs available to suit all your party needs.

Pin The Pirate Games.

Forget the lame old Pin The Tail On The Donkey: Pin The Parrot On The Pirate Game is a much better alternative for your party games!

Simple and easy to use printable game. A simple one-page Cap'n is the default, but there's a four-page version if you want to print it bigger.

Black and white versions are supplied, so you can get your party guests to color in their parrots, or even the Cap'n himself, making this double as a crafts for kids activity, perfect for kids 3 years and older!

Story Time

Arrrgh Arrrgh me maties, it be story time now.

This activity works well for the little kids who just love having stories read to them. Select a story to suit the age range of your guests. Sit all your little pirates in a circle, including the story teller, who ideally should also be dressed in a costume.

This is a great easy party game to do just before the yummy food is served, or to quieten the children down just before their parents take them home.

Take a look at my favorite picks below...

Mad Libs Game

Following on from the story game idea above, if the kids are a little older and you want to get them involved in the story telling, then try this Mad Libs Game

It's surprising how such a simple game can get so many laughs!Start with this partial pirate story and have every player enter the required types of words. You then take it in turns to read out your completed story.

Everybody's will be different and they're all really funny. A great do-together game choice for party where there's a mixed age group.

Pirate Newlywed Game Questions

Remember I said that these parties are not just for kids?.. well here is a Pirate Newlywed Game Questions And you don't need to be newlyweds to enjoy this game.

Choose from 20 funny questions to ask your chosen couples. The audience will enjoy the game just as much -- if not more -- than the players themselves!

Push the Captain into his barrel, select your favorite color swords, then take turns sliding a sword into the barrel slots. But beware - if he pops up you're OUT!

"Thank you Katherine, love your site. I used your suggestions for my 4 year olds birthday party last week. 15 Kindergarden kids! My sister does face painting so we did that. I had a pass the parcel using nursery rhyme music I had a candy between each wrapping of paper which worked well. Finally I did some balloon games. They loved it. I especially liked your idea of having a story time at the end of the party, it worked well, my sister read the stories and I organized the parents as they arrived to pick up their kids. My little girl loved her special day and I think it was the games that made it work so well. Planning my sons 7th Birthday for next month now"

Just a quick note to let you know that I followed your instructions for running party games at my sons birthday party and it went really well. I did 3 games and the most popular was the obstacle course. I had 10 boys ages 6-10 and once they had played with the course I had set out they then started to create their own ideas for obstacles and rearranged the course making it harder and harder. This 1 game kept them entertained for over an hour.
