I've been brainstorming for ideas for activities for a pirate bday party for my soon to be 1 year old. I've been collecting things over the past few months for it, and have a few ideas for it, like a treasure hunt, and I have a pirate pinata, but was wanting more things to do for all the kids in our family, there will be @ 30-40 adults and children there.  I thought of "walking the plank" but need an activity for it. I was hoping some of you guys have had some pirate parties, or have some great brainstorming capabilities. HELP! His whole room is pirate themed, and have all the banners, and cake toppers, and pirate toys for gifts for prizes and such. What else can I do?HuhHuh Huh

I always love a 3-legged race at a party (great for adults and kids) so if you can find room for that, then you can call it walking the plank or something.  Plus you can use pirate bandanas to tie legs together.  You can have a pin-the-barrel-in-the-cannon (or something like that) with people having to wear two eyepatches over their eyes.  You can have pirate-themed food and "traditional" pirate food: treasure map cake, grog (punch), hard tack (biscuits), salted beef (beef jerky), skull & bones cookies, blue ocean Jell-o cups (with fruit snack sharks), seaweed (green pasta), etc.  You can also have a Mad-Libs type paper for adults to have a little fun. 

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

I'd have written more, too, but my ride was leaving and was impatient for me to finish!  I meant ball in the cannon (not barrel - I'd originally thought barrel in the ?, but I couldn't come up with anything).  But barrel-wise, if you have any barrels or half-barrel planters that'd be fun to serve drinks out of or use as stools.  I really like making mugboard photo ops for party photos (where you paint a picture and cut out a hole for guests to put their heads through).  I've got an old one from the '50s where it's a girl pirate having a man pirate walk the plank (with two head holes), and another with a pirate fighting a shark or something silly like that.  Those are always big hits at my parties.  Along with a treasure scavenger hunt you could have chocolate coins hidden throughout the house/yard just as a little side adventure.  And you could get one of those obnoxious repeating parrot toys to amuse some guests (and annoy some others!).  Okay, now I think I'm done!
