Holding a party for a group of young children can feel daunting, however with a little thought and a good theme they can be great fun and inexpensive. When Party Bags and Supplies contacted me to see if I would like to review some of their range I jumped at the chance. With activity hour to fill each week a few props are always welcome. After a good browse of their website I choose the Ultimate Jake’s Pirates Party Pack for 8 to review which my preschoolers soon put to the test for our special afternoon party.
We set our pirate themed table up in front of the Coombe Mill pirate play ship and fortress to give the full pirate experience. The children were soon drawn to the colourful table for a bite to eat and drink. I even used some of the card packaging to make pirate decorations for the cake and made use of some of the napkins for bunting on the ship.
With tummies full the children each took their loot bags over to the pirate ship where Guy had hidden some homemade treasure. The children had a great time climbing, sliding and searching for their pirate treasure still wearing their eye patches which came in the pack.
With loot bags full Clio untied a balloon for everyone from the play fortress while Guy brought out the Coombe Mill Train. Every one enjoyed a pirate train ride waving their balloons and carrying their treasure.
It was a lovely way to spend a sunny winter’s afternoon. The party packs are designed for age 3 plus, but all our pirate party guests were actually 18 months plus and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. If you want to expand your party theme into a full 2 hour party then do have a look at my pirate crafts which are suitable for preschool age upwards. These together with the party packs would make a perfect party indoors or outside with maximum fun at minimum cost.
