I really wish both of my cameras wouldn't have been out of commission for this sweet girls' party. This is pretty much the only picture we got from my husbands phone. I guess that means I'll be camera shopping soon.
Back to the party....
~When the guests arrived, they were given a blank paper pirate's hat to decorate. We had a few skulls, but we had Hello Kitty cut outs and pirate patches to put on her. Some went all out with foam letters.
~They were each given a map which led to the treasure.
~The first station was walking the plank. We used large planks to make a small obstacle course. (the weather was perfect!)
~The next station was cannon pop. We used black balloons and played that balloon relay where you have to run and pop the balloons. Afterwards, I poured out the balloons and the kids had to scramble to pop them. (This would not work for younger children as a few were still scared of loud noises)
~We then played pin the patch on Hello Kitty.
~Finally we were led to a scavenger hunt to find the treasure.
~The treasure was found and they filled their loot bags with the booty. We had necklaces, rings, gold coins, Hello Kitty Pez, candy rings, and money mints.
~We sang Happy Birthday and ate simple snacks of Pirate Booty, Gold Fish (Kitty Treats), Pretzles (Peg Legs), Hello Kitty Cookies and Pirate Ship Cupcakes.
My sweet girl had a blast and felt loved by her friends coming all the way out to her house (we live in the middle of nowhere). I had a blast watching her have so much fun. I also had fun creating the images and think I've found a new love.
