Earlier this month (where on earth has that time gone?!?!) I promised photos of the magnificant pirate themed party that we went to for my gorgeous nephew’s 5th birthday.
I was very impressed with the superbly stylish simplicity of it all!
There were a number of activities set up for the kids to complete during the course of the party.
First of all they were invited to decorate their own ‘treasure bag’ and then for completing each activity they earned a little gift to put in their treasure bag.
Knock ‘em down game – made by covering tin cans with colored paper and small home made rice bags which Lou made using the same fabric she used to make the bunting.
Digging for gold coins in the sand
Treasure Toss – tossing large silver coins (cardboard wrapped in foil) into an old suitcase.
Walk the Plank (plank of wood set up on bricks) to receive a pirate hat.
Pin the Eye Patch on the Pirate (made by our talented sister Clare!)
Cakes are the domain of my brother-in-law who always does an impecable job – he even joined the last craft night at Lou’s to finish sewing the sails.
Party bags contained pirate coloring pages, a treasure map, some chocolate coins, a fruit stick, a pirate magnet (made by Lou) & an eyepatch. Plus the kids got to take home the things they’d collected in their ‘treasure bags’ during the activities – bubbles, spinning top, pirate hat, box of sultanas & gold coins.
