A few weeks ago when I took my fam to visit my brother, and we had our day at the beach, we also got to celebrate my nephew’s 4th birthday. He loves Jake and the Never Land Pirates, so my sister in law planned a fun Pirate Birthday Party. They’re just out of school, so it was all done on a budget, which thoroughly impressed me. I tend to go all out on my parties, and try to stick within a range, but try not to think about it as I collect ideas. I really loved the simplicity of this party, the details were perfect, and the games were fun.
First, there was the awesome Canon and canon ball cake:
Kim crafted the canon out of toilet paper rolls, tape, cereal boxes, and black spray paint. The Canon cupcakes with twizzlers, and a sphere giant canon ball with a sparkler on top. Then she had some fun pirate party games complete with a treasure map, and a red “x” to mark the spot.
There was also walking of the plank (where they threw a water balloon “bomb” off the boat to the “x”), toss the ring on the hook/sword, make your own eyepatch…
