In the eraly spring we are having a Piatre Party (my nephews request) ofr several kids aged  2 to 12.

I have a few ideas:
Getting a gross of "pirate coins" use some to make necklcaes for the kids then hide a bunch. (we will hide all of these in the back yard. using a sharpie we will color one side of them, a diff color for each kid. the kids will have a certain number hidden, say 8 or so.) I have little wooden chest we will put clues in there leading them to their coins... so a treasure hunt.

Bobbing for duckys: I think I will fill tub with small blue baloons to simulate water, rather than use water for rubber duckys. I have a dozzen pirate rubber duckies.
What other games??

I'll make a big fish bowl o f blue jello w gummy sharks. 
Goldfish crackers  ....
Not sure what else to do for food?


Decorations will be easy, a few pirate flags, black, white & red tablecloths, paltes,cups etc., a stuffed parrot or two.
Not sure what else... What do you think??

I foun da couple mor ethings...
I will print these invites out   http://www.activitiesforkids.com/birthday/invitations.htm
& roll them & put in a dried out water bottle. they will be hand delivered.


Sand box hunt - For younger children - if you have a sand box, you may want to use shiny coins (pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters).  Allow each child to dig for 1 minute.  Replace 'found' coins after each turn.  Let the children keep the coins that they find.

also I don't wan tto give the kids eye patches, 1 am afraid they will try to boing each otehr, pull the patch back & snap it ya know. 2. kids are kinda klutzy & i don'tneed to add to that!!
Also no sabers, swords, hooks or weapons... same reasons. I can see my neice beatting her brother with them. I just don't like the idea of kids having "toy"weapons. not judgung just my opinion.
