How about a pirate treasure hunt?

Does your little boy have a birthday coming up? Perhaps you're trying to figure out what sort of theme you can give the party to make it a memorable occasion. Well, what boy doesn't love pirates? If you've got an aspiring swashbuckler in the family, a treasure hunt could be just what he's looking for. It's surprisingly easy to put together and you can bet your little one will be overjoyed at the prospect of hunting for treasure for the day. If you're not sure where to begin, here are some tips to help ensure everything goes off without a hitch.

Start by decking out your home in your pirate best. Hang round paper lanterns to give everything a nice burst of color. Mini wooden sailboats are another great way to bring a nautical theme to the proceedings. If you're feeling industrious, pick up the soundtrack to a Pirates of the Caribbean movie and pipe it over the speakers during the party.

Of course, this is first and foremost a treasure hunt, so you're going to have to put together a list of stuff for the kids to search for. Keep it simple and hide the objects throughout the property, including the front and backyard. Items like small pirate hats and chocolate half-dollar coins are great because they stick with the theme and are fairly easy to hide. Let the kids divide themselves into teams and give each a list - they'll love dashing around trying to find all of the hidden objects!

Make sure the winners leave with a wonderful prize. Mini classic gumball machines and personalized birthday lollipops are sure to go over well. There are plenty of other great party favors to give to the runners up as well, whether it's a small bag of candy or a stick of personalized lip balm. The kids will just be so glad they had such a good time at the party that they won't care what they end up going home with!

Little boys love the prospect of living the pirate's life, and though you might not be able to provide yours with his own ship and crew, he can spend the day acting like the real thing with his best friends! It's a wonderful way to spend a birthday.
