Introduction and Party Invitations
Yo Ho Ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me. Your child may pretend to be his or her own pirate of the salty seas with a crew to take on the adventures. If so, a great party theme that works well for both boys and girls is a pirate adventure that can transport them to a pirate ship of swashbuckling fun.
Looking for festive pirate thematic party ware? Visit the party goods section of your local Toys "R" Us store or go to Toysrus.com.
For aninvitation that you make and will hand-deliver, take yellow sheets of paper and burn the edges slightly. (Make sure that only adults use matches to burn the edges of the paper.) Write all of your party details and place them into clean, old-fashioned root beer bottles. Write your guests’ names on the sticker labels in fancy pirate script and hand them out.
Add festive language to get the kids in the party mood:
"Aaarghhh! Ye be invited to some birthday swashbucklin’ fun at Pirate (child’s name)’s bash. Chart yer course fer Pier (your address). / We be meetin’ at (time) on (date) fer a pirate party. / Have yer grownup send message by yer phone to (number).
