At the end of the party there was one more bit of treasure, to go! Sharon says, “I made the loot bags by folding burlap rectangles, sewing two edges and using leather cord for the drawstrings. I cut an ‘X’ template and painted each bag using the template.” Inside each loot bag, the pirates found snack packages of Pirate’s Booty, some gold doubloons, a gold chocolate bar, and a mini spyglass.
PIRATE PARTY!!! There are loads of games to keep kids entertained. “Every party guest got a simple treasure map with stations marked on it. Each station had a prize or activity. Walk the plank for a felt pirate hat and gold coin, bean bag toss for bandana braids and an eye patch, a tattoo station where they traded a gold coin for temporary ink, a treasure chest to collect necklaces and rings, and then the kids gathered at the ships for the magic show.”
