FIND THE CROCODILE
TICK TOCK find the CROC. Use a clock ticking away or an egg timer. Let the pirates search for the ticking croc before it rings.
WALK THE PLANK
Use a long thick board and mount each side on sturdy strong bricks on top of a blue blanket to represent the ocean. Using a baby pool is a good idea as well if it is outdoors and you don’t mind the water all over. Get the kids to “walk the plank” without falling. Blindfold the older kids to make it fun. Pirates who successfully crossover have to go back the plank backwards.
Props used. Blue sheets to represent the ocean.
BUILD A PIRATE SHIP
Large box,craft paint,fabrics for a flag and some embellishments,kids can create their very own pirate ship and can be used as a photo booth as well.
PIRATE HOOK RELAY RACE
Divide kids into two teams and give them a pirate hook. The first player from both the teams will wear the hook and run to a pile of mesh knick knacks filled small bags and bring it back to the team. The second players from both the teams go next. Team who hauls all the bags first wins.
Props used.pirate hook and goody bags.
BOBBYING FOR APPLES
Hang cored apples at the kids height. Let the kids try to bite the apples with their hands tied behind their backs. A simple classical game loved by the kids.
Kids love to sword fight like little pirates. Each kid is given bread sticks for swords and the object of the game is to break the opponents sticks without breaking their own. The person who stays the champ the longest gets to be the winner.
