Pirate Games {Jake and the Neverland Pirates Party}

We have reached the end of March, which means the end of the birthday craziness for my family! I’m back to share the games we played at our Jake and the Neverland Pirate party! (Check out everything Disney on Scrap Inspired)

Originally I thought of having a treasure hunt during the party. But then I decided I didn’t really want kids running all over my house. 🙂 So I revised that idea and decided to have party maps that would lead you through the party!

I used grocery bags for the base of the map. I found clip art to go with each activity during the party and printed out seven copies of each image (I actually created one page in PSE with 7 of each picture on it). Once I glued on the images I drew my dotted lines and the X. Then I rolled up the maps and tied them off with bakers twine.

We placed them by the door and the birthday boy handed out the maps as his guests arrived.

The first stop was to dress like a pirate. More on the costumes here.

Next up we decorated treasure chests. These are the supplies I began with.

Before the party I divided out the gems and jewel stickers into 7 sets. All this came from one boy and one girl crown set. More than enough for 7 treasure boxes!

When the kids arrived, this was waiting for them. Along with letter stickers to add their name.

Oooo la la, right?!? 🙂 The kids had so much fun decorating their treasure chests! As the party went along I gave the children gold doubloons for completing each task (just like they do on the show). The kids had fun storing their treasure in their treasure chest.

Next up was some healthy snacks. My son actually asked for fruit, veggies, and cheese sticks. I added in a few crackers and we were good to go! Makes me hungry just looking at the picture!

After snacks it was time to walk the plank! So much fun and SO EASY! We attached a 2×6 to two milk crates sent them across. The kids lined up to go again and again.

After walking the plank it was time to dig for buried treasure. This is just a large tub that we added play sand and treasure to.

I posted a sign with how many of each item the kids could have. That way we knew when the treasure was all out.

I’d say they enjoyed this part…what do you think? 🙂 The last two stops on the treasure map were opening presents and eating cake! So much fun!

We’re nearing the end of the party so I’ll show you the goodie bags. I bought these plain bags at Target, printed out images of the characters and added our guests names. Just glued the printed image/name right onto the bag.

Each bag contained a coloring sheet and other printables from the Disney website. I also included some chocolate coins and Hershey toffee bars (thought they looked like gold bars).

I found these pirate books in the dollar spot at Target. I love giving something educational. 🙂 I also included a pirate hook (from Hobby Lobby) and a ring pop.

A friend of mine made this amazing cake! It was the perfect way to finish off an amazing party!

    Hi! Love all of your ideas! Planning a Jake party for my son’s 4th birthday. I tried looking for those small treasure boxes online at Hobby Lobby, but can’t seem to find them. Do you remember what they’re called? Thanks so much! 🙂

      They might not be online but you should be able to find them in the store. I’m sorry but I don’t know exactly what they were called. I do know they were in the unfinished wood and decoupage box area of the store. Hope that helps!

      I just did a google search and found images I wanted to use. For the coloring pages I went to the Disney website and got them there. Hope that helps!
