Pirate Party Games for Kids' Birthdays:
If you are arranging a pirate themed birthday for your
child, then of course you will have to think of some
If possible a pirate treasure hunt is a
must, read suggestions for that
on this page
Apart from the treasure hunt I have
collected some very funny birthday games with a touch of
pirate and dangerous times :-) As I guess you can see,
almost any party game can be changed into a game that has
something to do with different themes, but I think the
games I describe here are really great for a pirate party
I have tried to make notes of which age,
number of participants, what you need and for some games
that they are certainly best outdoor, but it is just an
Pirate Party Games:
1st. pirate game: Lined Up to Walk the Plank
Age: 6 and more. Number of participants:
3 and more You need: A scarf for each kid
You know, when you read a story with pirates, there is
almost always someone who has to walk the plank. Wendy had
to, but was saved by Peter Pan, and your pirate guests can
be saved as well.
Be sure there is enough space where
the game shall take place, the more kids the more room is
needed to avoid kids bumping into furniture and stuff.
Now you tell the guests that they have been take prisoner
and they are on a pirate ship where they have to walk the
plank, all of them. So they will have to line up in a row
to go to the plank.
The only way they can avoid that
is if they can manage to make the row with the smallest
(lowest) child first, then the next and so on, ending with
the tallest child. The difficult thing is that they have
to do it blindfolded, and without saying a word or sound!
All the kids get blindfolded, and you blow a
whistle or shout "start the row for the plank!". Now they
shall get hold of each other, feel the height of the other
and themselves, then make a row with the tallest child in
the back and the smallest child in the front.
Hopefully they can make the row with the right height
difference, (maybe with a little help) so they can be
saved from the terrible fait of walking the plank.
2nd pirate game: Topple Tins
Age: 7 and more Number of participants: 2
and more You need: 10 - 15 empty tins (be aware there are
no sharp edges) or plastic cups, foam balls (or water
balloons if outside, or any soft balls) Build a pyramid
out of the tins with either 4 or 5 at the bottom.
Make a line a little away from the tins. Now the
kids shall throw the ball, each kid has 3 -5 attempts, and
gets 1 point for each toppled tin. Build the pyramid again
for the next kid to throw.
This is a really fun
birthday party game, and to make it fit the pirate theme
you can decorate the tins with black paper with a white
scull and bones, or white paper with a face of a pirate.
Painting the pirate faces on the tin can be part of the
When this game is played at a 10 year
birthday and if the kids are really great at throwing the
ball, you can add the rule that they have to throw the
ball with the left hand, if they are right-handed and vice
3rd pirate game: Getting Warm
This well known children's game can easily be
combined with the pirate theme. Age: 4 and
more Number of participants: 2 and up to 6 You need: 2-6
big cardboard keys, a treasure chest (you can easily make
it yourself of a cardboard box) and a treasure (candy,
cakes or something like that)
play this game with the children at the birthday party if
I didn't make a treasure hunt.
A pirate treasure chest
has been found, but the pirates will have to find all the
keys to open it. You have already placed a number of big
cardboard keys different places in the room/rooms. (If you
like you can use this template for the keys.
the first pirate child has to find a key. You are the only
one who knows where it is, and tell the child: "It's
getting hot" "It's getting hotter" and so on, as long as
the child gets nearer to the key you have decided on.
"It's getting cold" "Oh, it's really getting colder" when
the child moves away.
When the first pirate child has
found the key you will lead the next child to another key,
until all the kids have found a key. If the children are
very young, and if there are more than 5 children, I
suggest you make them search for keys two and two, holding
Now you pretend to use all the keys to open the
treasure chest, and the children will get their pirate
4th. pirate game: Fetch Drinking Water for the Pirate
Age: 4 and more Number of participants:
6, but more is better Where: Outdoor You need: Two small
buckets and two similar glasses
pirates will have to practice to fetch drinking water for
when their pirate ship abut on a deserted island, so they
should stand in two rows.
The first in each row is
handed a bucket filled with water. Now the child with the
bucket hands over the bucket to the next in the row, who
hands it over to the next and so on. When the last child
in the row gets the bucket, she or he hands it back, which
goes on until the bucket gets to the first child again.
The children have to do it without wasting too much
water, but also fast, because you never know if there are
any natives who might want to come and steel the pirate
When the bucket has passed all the way back and
forth in the two rows, you fill the glasses with what
water is left, and the team with most water left is the
You can play a pirate song and ask the
children to pass the bucket in rhythm with the music (Hey
- Ho -Hey - Ho or something like that), and if the
children are really good at not wasting the water, you can
make it more difficult (and fun) telling them to let the
bucket pass back and forth one more time, but this time
pass it between the legs.
5th pirate game: Pirate in Sight!
Age: 4 and more Number of participants: 6
and more Where: Outdoor You need: Rope or chalk to mark
out the field, or maybe just a stick to mark a lines in
sand or soil. A pirate captain hat would be a great, but
Mark a field approx. 16 ft x
50 ft. This is the ocean, and the pirate captain stands in
the middle of the field. All the other children divides
into two groups, one at each short end of the ocean.
pirate captain shouts: "Pirate in sight!" all the children
will have to cross the ocean from one end to the other and
the pirate captain will try to catch them (They are caught
when touched by the pirate captain).
Those who get
caught are now pirates, and the pirates hold hands two and
two or tree, and they try and catch the other children
when they cross the ocean. It is still the original pirate
captain that shouts "pirate in sight!" The child who gets
caught last shall be the pirate captain next.

Pirate Party Ideas for Decorations:
For the pirate
birthday party you can find lots and lots of ideas in
Pinterest, or search the internet in general for decoration

banners, or print it and cut it for table decoration.

Pirate Treasure Hunt:
You can make all kinds of stories for a treasure hunt, as
pirates are known to dig down treasures.
Here is a template
for a pirate treasure map. You can print it and draw your own map,
like the one very simple I made for a 3rd year birthday. And you can
use it outdoor as well as indoor.
|Treasure hunt pirate map template
|Example of a treasure map, showing the different
places to find a post, and finally the treasure
You can by a treasure chest for the treasure, or you can use
bags, anything will be OK as long as the kids get a treasure they
I have used chocolate gold coins for the treasure,
sometimes with other kinds of candy, because the coins are so golden
and make the treasure so real.
