12 Budget-Friendly Pirate Party Games for Kids

Making a kid’s party can be a lot of work. For me, having a theme takes away most of the stress because it narrows everything down. It makes all the choices of food, decor and games easier. Making a pirate-themed party for your little one is one of the easier themes. I’ve put together some of the most exciting, thrilling, easy-to-put-together and affordable pirate party games that will make your child’s special day a treasure to remember.

1. X Marks the Spot Treasure Hunt

This game is a twist on the classic pin the tail on the donkey. Instead of a donkey, each person gets an X that they have to try and pin on the treasure chest while blindfolded! Whoever pins it best, gets some treasure to take home!

2. Walk the Plank Challenge

Transform a simple plank into an epic challenge! Arrange a “Walk the Plank” area where daring pirates showcase their balancing skills. For extra fun, line the floor with a blue sheet and make some shark tails stick out of the ‘water’.

3. Cannonball Toss Extravaganza

Turn ordinary balls into cannonballs for a toss extravaganza! Set up a designated area and let the little sailors showcase their throwing prowess.

4. Peg Leg Relay Race

There’s nothing quite like a relay race for a good laugh! Divide everyone into teams and equip them with makeshift peg legs. Watch them hilariously navigate through the racecourse, creating laughter and unforgettable memories.

5. Ship Deck Musical Chairs

Add a maritime twist to the classic game of musical chairs with a ship deck setting. As the music plays, the young sailors move around the “ship.” When it stops, they must quickly find a spot on the deck. The last pirate standing becomes the captain of the ship!

6. Captain Hooks Ring Toss

A ring toss game is always popular with younger kids. Customize it to your theme and make it a pirate theme with a Captain Hook ring toss. This is a DIY game, make the board yourself and add these pegs to it.

7. Sea Creature Scavenger Hunt

Dive into the depths of the sea with a sea creature scavenger hunt. Hide sea creature toys around the party area, and let the young pirates hunt for these mystical beings.

8. Pirate Ship Piñata Adventure

9. Treasure Chest Crafting Station

Set up a treasure chest crafting station with undecorated treasure chests along with feathers, beads, markers and stickers, allowing them to design their chest to take home with them.

10. Message in a Bottle

Provide materials for crafting a Message in a Bottle. Each kid can write or draw a message and seal it in a bottle with a cork lid for an old-fashioned effect. They can either keep it as a going-home gift from the party or if you live near the sea, make an adventure out of it and toss the bottles in the sea.

11. Pirate’s Cove Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with these adorable pirate props and backdrops. Let the kids have fun creating their favorite and scariest pirate poses!

12. Pirate Bingo

Embark on a Pirate Adventure with a Pirate Bingo game featuring pictures of pirates, treasure maps, and high seas! Be the first person to cover all the pirate images to win the game.
