I found some more pictures for you Pirate-loving party planners!
At our kids Pirate Party, we had a coloring activity to occupy the little pirates. I found these at Joanne Fabrics in their $1 section. I had them on one of the tables with a bucket of markers for the kids to color. Unfortunately, the kids were preoccupied with dart guns and cupcakes, so these were never done. Now I'm saving them for a rainy day project.
The contents of the loot bags - balloons, a map/activity sheet, eye patches, rings, coins, money, tattoos, a whistle, a finger puppet and a mini telescope. Most of this came from a party store kit, but I threw in some other goodies for good measure.
Here are the sashes I made. They are just 42" red fabric torn on the boas and left ragged for a more authentic look. It was long enough for all the kids - big and small.
