The Mr. and I talked about a few ideas for 'themes', according to what the Little 'into', so we presented two choices - dinosaurs or pirates. On two separate occasions, Tyson answered, 'pi-ates'. So, Momma is free to plan away..!! :)
While checking the party supply aisle at Target, I saw a few things I figured I'd better grab now as they could be gone in a few months (and I knew I'd be bummed if they were).
So here are a few little things I've collected so far and a few thoughts on party planning this year..
We're going with a generic pirate theme - although Tyson particularly likes Jake and the Neverland Pirates, I thought keeping it plain/simple would be best. I love the idea of paper straws, but they don't seem to be the most effective option for the job (they seem to turn soggy and kind of fall apart). So, we'll see how these actually get used. :)
In the party favor section was this pack of eye patches - a MUST for a pirate party, obviously!! I'm praying Tyson will keep one on long enough for a few pictures..
this. Or just hanging them down for the kids to run through; not really sure yet, but for $0.97, I figured they'd be fun for something.
Any good ideas for a pirate party? What to do with streamers?
