Pirate Birthday Party Ideas for Kids

Pirate Birthday Cake

For this pirate birthday theme we used a black table cloth and hung a larbe happy pirate skull flag behind us. For the rest of the pirate theme decorations we sprinkled some white skull and crossbone confetti round the pirate birthday cake. The cake was a work of art and cool decoration all in itself.

Pirate Birthday Cake

For the pirate cake I made an island out of rice krispie treats and stuck a playmobil palm tree in it. I used the ship cake mold and decorated it with licorice cannons, pretzel railings, playmobil pirate figures, and a sail I printed to look like pirate sails and alsy say happy birthday. I used wood skewers to put them into the cake. Finally, I piped blue frosting on the cake board to allow the ship to sale to the island and put red m and ms from the ship to the treasure chest birthday candle on the island.

The cake is still one of my favorites and my son, now 15 still remembers it fondly.

Pirate party games

I framed  by the food table a print-out that sayd What Every Pirate Needs (i.e. compass, eye patch, etc) and after each game the kids got another pirate necessity to accessorize.

Walk the Plank Pirate Game

All the kids “Walked the Plank” over our kiddie pool. So simple, but so much fun! We got lots of “Can we do it again?”

Pirate Treasure Hunt

Pirate Treasure Hunt

Being a pirate party we had to have a treasure hunt! I made picture clues since most of the guests couldn’t read. They each took an adult with them and ran all around our house & yard. At the end was a treasure box with some chocolate gold coins. It was a BLAST!

  • For your birthday party list, we have done co-ed birthday “Pirates and Princesses”. Kid crafts are color/decorate ‘Treasure Bag’ (paper lunch bag for their party favors), coloring ‘Treasure Chest’ (pre-cut-out 2″ x 3.5″ treasure chest pictures for pin-the-chest), ‘Decorate a crown &/or eye-patch’ (pre-cut construction paper patches and crown fronts with holes for different colored strings; stickers, stick-on jewels, coloring), and assorted parrot pictures to color. Party Favors table is supervised by a teen or adult: rings(2), necklaces(2), plastic coins(4), plastic gems & pearls(6), chocolate coins(4), etc. Games are ‘Pin the Chest’ (to a torn cardboard Treasure Map, with rough pictures of mountains, palms, waterfall, etc. Same blindfold and spinning kid, but everyone wins!), ‘Treasure Grab’ (is similar to pinata, but less dangerous. Shoe-box Treasure chest is filled with wrapped candy and extras from party favor table. Starting with Birthday child, each child kneels at chest and scoops a double handful to fling up in the air, circle of children grab what they can. Attending adult gives handful of candy from re-fill bowl/bag to scooping child; then next child and so forth. Grabbed treats go in each child’s self-decorated treasure bag.) We also have a costume fashion show for everyone to applaud (Princes, Princesses, Pirates; decorated crowns & eye patches). We do the birthday and candles wish near the beginning of the party, open gifts while kids eat small portions of cake & ice cream, games, full buffet and more desert, then let everyone loose to treasure hunt and explore in the back yard (different decorated boxes have many matching colored tickets inside for bringing back for prize redemption).
