yarr! almost too many ideas to know what to do! yarr!

Having a pirate party at home for my daughters 5th. She only plays with boys so we are having 10 boys over plus my sons 'girlfriend' (he is 6 lol)

I want to try and keep the costs down, so we can afford a bouncy castle, im going to read all of the piratey posts on this board but if anyone could give me some ideas i would be most grateful!

The invitations are done, treasure map style. I mostly need ideas for homemade things for party bags, and homemade decorations for the house.

Im thinking of making a pirate ship picnic blanket for them to sit at as they wont fit round our table! Has anyone done something like that before? Id love to see photos!

thanks in advance!

I just had a pirate party for my three year old, reusing a heap of ideas I had for my son's fifth birthday a few years back.
I wrote a post about at the time: http://silvermoon-dragon.blogspot.com/2010/05/kids-cooking-thursday-pirate-party.html

Also something I found very handy, was buying a set of Crayola colour in posters from Pirates of the Caribbean. The big A3 sheets were a great ice breaker while we waited for all the children to arrive, and a good "calm down" activity when things started getting out of hand.

I was doing some pirate research myself (long story...) over at Youtube the other day, and I saw a whole bunch of recipes for pirate cakes, and a lot of Lego crafts. Lego puts out a pirates set; maybe you could buy a bunch of the sets to pass out, OR you could buy only a handful of them and assemble them around the room in strategic places...

 Embarrassed I cheated. They are foam stickers from the scrapbooking aisle. I had bought a craft kit for the five boys (plus my son) to make foam pirate hats and thought the provided stickers wouldn't be enough decoration. I really lucked out with the extra stickers though, I got a bag of 50 for $2.
