First off I have to give credit to my sister. Her oldest child was turning 6 and she wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirate party.
The only problem was that my little sister is 8 months pregnant. Luckily I live nearby and both my kids were invited to the party so I was able to help where help was needed.
The invitations (which I created) were wrapped and secured in empty (mini Naked) Juice Bottles to give them a message in the bottle feel, and then were hand delivered.
My sister baked, cut and dirty frosted the Pirate cake and then I did the rest (aka frosting it to actually look like Jake and the Never Land’s Pirate Cake) I don’t think I did that bad of a job. 🙂
When the kids arrived they grabbed their pirate, and in some cases non pirate garb (That’s right my daughter decided to be a mermaid and then later took off that costume put on wings and declared she was a pixie hallow fairy.) from the dress up pile.
Even my baby joined in the pirate fun. Doesn’t he look adorbs with his eye patch?
Next it was time for a fun craft of making spyglasses with toilet paper rolls.
The kids had a blast going through the pirate Obstacle/Treasure Hunt. and then of course eating cake, ice cream and watching the birthday girl open presents.
Then before the parent came and picked up all the kids, my sister had everyone go outside she we could take a group picture with the awesome cardboard pirate ship she made.
At the party my daughter (who’s birthday is next month) announced that she was going to have a vampire birthday and that everyone would have to dress up.I informed her that this was news to me. Thankfully today she has changed her mind and is instead asking for a Space Party with stars, planets, space ships and astronauts.That I can Do. 😉
What have your kids recently requested for their Birthday Parties?
