Pirate party games are always a hit with children of all ages. If you are planning on having a pirate theme party for your child's birthday, there is no doubt that it will be a party both your child and his friends will remember for a long time to come.
Kids love being captivated by a pirate's imagination and exploring the magical world of eye patches and swords. In order to ensure a swashbuckling good time you will want to include a couple of these pirate party games in the activities you have planned. Here are some of the best pirate party ideas: Two-Patch Captain Game
This game works best if there are seven or more children at the party. It also is most fun when played in a small room. The only thing you will need to play the game is two eye patches.
Begin by placing the two eye patches on one child's eyes so that both eyes are covering and he cannot see. Now the "blind captain" counts to 10 while the other children scurry out of reach. At 10 the blind captain tries to catch another player who then becomes the blind captain.
Playing this game in a small room keeps the game manageable while at the same time still making it difficult for the blind captain to catch someone.
Pirate Treasure Hunt
A treasure hunt is always a game that children love to play. Transform this classic game into a swashbuckling pirate fun game by using parchment paper on which to write the clues.
Hide the treasures ahead of time so that with each clue the tiny pirates find, they are rewarded with a tiny treasure and another clue until they reach the treasure chest with the big prize.
Give the children black paper sashes or eye patches to make them feel like real pirates and your instructions in pirate language. No doubt they will join in the fun. Keep the prizes in line with the pirate theme and the game will be a hit. Pirate Ship Chase
These are great pirate party games for a pool party or to play if you have an inflatable pool in your backyard. Each child is given a remote control boat and is seated beside the pool.
A parent operates the gold boat and is not a player in the game. The object of the game is for the little pirates to chase the gold in the gold boat and capture it with their boats. The player that catches up to the gold boat wins.
Pirate party games are creative and involve fun activities that children love. It sparks their imagination and in no time at all they feel as if they have been transported to another world. Add pirate party decorations such as eye patches, treasure maps, gold coins, and more. You'll have a party that will be remembered for a long time to come.
