No need to make party guests walk the plank when you rent an inflatable pirate ship for your next pirate themed party. They’ll be having too much fun bouncing and sliding!
Yes, you can rent an inflatable pirate ship to help set the tone and bring the fun to your pirate party. Kids love to play pirate, they love to bounce, and they love inflatable slides, so this really is the perfect centerpiece for a pirate themed party!
Here are some other ideas to make your pirate party a rip roaring success:
Create the Ultimate Treasure Hunt
Pirates are all about getting treasure, so a treasure hunt is the ultimate pirate party activity. Best of all, it’s easy to incorporate any rentals or existing activities into your treasure hunt!
All you have to do is hide clues on “treasure maps” for the kids to find. You can hand them the first map that includes a hint to where to find the next. Customize the difficulty level and number of clues to match the age of your little pirate partygoers.
Once they reach the final clue, they receive a prize! This can be party favors, sweets or whatever you choose. Maybe the clues simply lead them to where the birthday cake is ready, it’s up to you!
Make a Pirate Training Obstacle Course
Another way to have fun and put your party rentals to good use is by creating a pirate training obstacle course. Gather your crew and tell them that in order to become official pirates, they should try every step of the pirate training obstacle course.
The steps can incorporate whatever games or activities you already have planned. Here are some examples:
- Run into the inflatable pirate ship, jump 10 times, then go down the slide
- Climb up the rock wall
- Put on a pirate eye patch and try to throw a ball to knock down cans
- Find the gold coin at the bottom of the foam party rental
- Balance on the “plank” (a balance beam or similar board)
No matter what activities you have planned, you can tie them into the obstacle course. And if you want to kick the challenge up a notch, you can even have the little pirates do the obstacle course one at a time and use a timer to see who can complete the course the fastest.
Enjoy Some Pirate Crafts
Pirates like to be creative too! Pirate themed crafts are a fun way to celebrate and can make great keepsakes or party favors.
The complexity of the crafts can depend on the age of the pirates. Pirate themed coloring sheets work for all ages and can be easily found online and printed at home. You could also get jewelry making kits to let the kids create some pirate treasure of their very own. There are even pirate themed ones available online!
Even if it’s not a take-home project, a sensory area with a water table or kinetic sand can be a fun option for young pirates to enjoy.
