Ahoy Matey, Welcome to Pirate Island! Pirates are such a fun and favorite theme for parties and celebrations, as well as everyday learning. I have gathered up a few of my favorite pirate ideas to share with you here, including my own designs on things.
I designed a fun set of tags to use for a pirate celebration. It is part of a larger set that includes games over on Shop Laura Kelly.
Long candies like licorice are perfect for tying into nautical knot party treats.
Sharks and pirates go together in a funny kind of way. Shark bait is kind of cool too with simple crackers.
Lots of pirates are known to keep pet parrots. You can make parrots out of felt as a party craft and send them home with cracker snacks. If you need a pattern for the parrot, you can get the printable in the Pirate Party Printable set.
Pirates are always in search of gold and treasures. Here is a fun way to serve up some gold. Coat mini Oreo’s in Betty Crocker’s Gold Candy and add the white candies for pearls to a pudding cup.
If your favorite pirate is Captain Hook then you know all about the connection with the crocodile. These darling cookies were made with Betty Crocker frosting and candies.
Every pirate loves a mug of juice.
After a crazy amount of sugar and treats, play a little game of Walk the Plank. I painted an old slat from the picnic table.
I had so much fun designing the collection titled Pirate Island. I am excited that now others can buy my clip art and use it to create their own resources to use with kiddos. You can get it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. There are 75 image files!
If you don’t want to make your own resources, you can buy the Pirate Party Printable set over on Shop Laura Kelly. It has these two puzzles, the fun food tags and the parrot pattern in it.
Ahoy mateys…have a great day!
