Yo Ho Ho…A Pirates Life for Me!

Pirate 7th Birthday Party!

We had a great time making and creating!
AHOY! Cap’n Elias is his scallywag crew!
Arrgh! 

 DIY Fun for hours!

Pirate Ship full of cannon balls

Swords! I will post a tutorial soon! You will want to make these!!!

FEED THE SHARK!! Shark made from a box that was in our garage – painted! How cute! Big hit!

Handmade bean bags – felt (I already had) hot glue and dried beans!

Walk the plank – over the ocean! The kids LOVED this!

 The Pirate Ship…

Tiny Treasure Chest full of cannon balls (whoppers)

Marshmellow pops! BIG HIT!

 Cannon Ball Fight…
24 half filled black balloons – – – this was hours of fun for these little boys – and only cost $1.99!!!

 The Presents…
All the kids had so much fun!!!

Other games included:
Toss the Anchor – the kids had a great time tossing the anchor in the front yard!
Treasure Hunt! –
The boys followed the map that Cap’n Elias had  to the X where they found personalized backpacks full of booty – pirate hat, eye patch, looking glass, candy, ect.

All in all this was probably the funnest and the cheapest party we have ever thrown!

The Key? We shopped garage sales last summer – that is where we found the decorations, pirate hats, patches, blow up boat ect. for a total of around $20!

I hope this gives you a few idea of your own!!
