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!
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!
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.
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!
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.

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.
