Ahoy! Ahoy! They may have been invited, but they won’t be waiting patiently to get a slice of cake. You might need some pirate party games to stop them from stealing your dessert table before they’re ready. Grapevine is a concept by Mirago Media AB. Our goal is to design and develop products at a 8 geburtstag mädchen reasonable price that allow for enjoyable, and productive hours, in the current fast-paced and global world.

Take the Plank

First, you’ll need a plank to play-walk the plank. By nailing a long plank made of wood to smaller pieces of wood, you can make your own plank. Then, place it on the ground as a table. To represent the ocean, place the plank on top of a blue tarp. You can also place it on top of a baby pool.

Line up your guests and ask them to walk along the plank. You want to get across the plank without getting in the water. Anyone who falls from the plank is out. Players who successfully cross the plank must do it again, but this time backwards. You can make it more difficult by crossing the plank sideways on one foot and blindfolded.

Cannon Ball Pop

You will need several black balloons to play this game. Each balloon will need a slip. Write on half the paper something that indicates a winner such as “Collect Ye Treasure.” The other half should be used to refer to a loser like “Walk the Plank!” Spread all the balloons throughout the play area.

Tell the pirates to gather and detonate the cannonballs in order to reach their ship. To pop the balloons, players will either stomp on them or sit on them. The winner player collects the prize and is eliminated from the game. If a player gets a loss message, he can keep trying. The game goes on until each pirate has won a treasure.

Forbidden Pirate Word

Each guest should be given 10 gold coins at the beginning of the party. To be the day’s forbidden word, choose a pirate word. The kids can continue to have fun for the first 30 minutes. However, if one child catches another saying a forbidden word, he must give one of his coins back to his captor. The pirate with the most coins wins when the time runs out.

Locate the Crocodile

This is a great game for “Peter Pan” fans. They will remember that Tick-Tock, the crocodile, swallowed Captain Hook’s hand and has been stalking him ever since. Hook was fortunate that the croc also swallowed the ticking clock so Captain Hook always hears him coming.

One player is to be sent out of the room. Captain Hook is the player who should be sent out. You will need to set a ticking timer in the kitchen for two minutes. Then tie it to a stuffed Crocodile. The rest of the players should hide the ticking Crocodile. Captain Hook should be brought back to the room. He will win a prize if he finds the crocodile in the room before the timer goes off. The timer will go off first. If he does not, he will be “eaten by crocs” and out of this game. You should play enough rounds to ensure that everyone gets a chance to be Captain Hook.

Cannon Ball Toss

Your pirates are ready to go! Pair them up and make them face-to-face. Each pirate should be given a black water balloon. The balloon must be thrown back and forth by the players who are standing across from one another. Each pair of winners must then challenge one another until there is only one remaining player.

You can make the game more difficult by having players stand on one side after each toss. Or, blindfolded, have them take a step back after each play.

Make a pirate ship

You will need a large container, some craft paint, flag fabric, and a few embellishments to make your pirate ship. This pirate ship is great for pirate photo booths and pirate playtime.

Buried Treasure

You can fill two sandboxes and then place lots of trinkets such as fake jewels, coins or stickers. Your pirates should be divided into two teams. Each team should be given a treasure box (or bucket) to dig for hidden treasures. Once the time runs out, empty the treasures into a bucket and count the loot. The team that has the most treasure wins.

Bomb the Pirate Ship

Two large cardboard boxes are required for this game. If your child is interested, they can decorate the boxes to look like pirate boats. The ships should be placed a few feet apart from one another. Split guests into two groups and ask them to each take turns at a pirate ship. Each pirate team will bombard the other ship with cannonballs when you signal the beginning of the game. There are two options: you can buy a lot soft play balls like the ones used in ball pits or you can make your cannonballs from newspaper crumpled up or aluminum foil.

Count the number of cannonballs in each box when time runs out. The team with the most cannonballs in each box wins.

Relay for a Peg-Legged Treasure Chest

This race can be played as a three-legged race. To make the race more fun, you can add pirate accessories. Two members of each team should wear a pirate hat, vest and eye patch. Then race with two legs connected to make a pile full of treasure. The team must collect as many treasures as possible and race back. They return to their starting point by emptying their hats into large treasure chests and then hand over the accessories to the next team. The treasure chest is filled first.

Pirate Ship Race

You will need two pirate ships and a baby swimming pool to play this game. Place the ships in the water pool. Players must move their ships across the pool. The winner is the first ship to cross the pool. You can also place the ships on small rafts if they don’t flot well.

You can also build two pirate ships from cardboard boxes for pirate ship racing. Split guests into two groups. One player from each team should sit in the pirate ship. One player from each team must push the other teammate in the pirate ship around an obstacle course. The pirates are then switched to the next team member. This relay race continues until all players have completed the course.
