Last week, I received a much-anticipated package from Disney in the mail: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in a Blu-ray DVD combo pack!
As my regular readers may know, I have a large amount of family within a very close distance. Included in that family are 12 of my daughter’s cousins, all of whom love the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise!
We had a fantastic pirate-themed party, complete with treasure chests (full of jewels and candy, of course), a pirate pennant, pizza rolls and a screening of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The kids had a fantastic time arranging their pirate head scarves, mustaches and eye patches, then chasing each other around the house (and the neighborhood) for a treasure hunt!
You can download instructions for a treasure hunt, or other pirate party activities here – so you can have a fun pirate party just like we did!
Even my Sheltie, Bailey, got into the Pirate theme with his cute little pirate bandanna. I personally think he makes an adorable little pirate.
After munching on their pirate fare, the kids watched Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on Blu-ray, and let me tell you, they all squealed with delight when I told them that in addition to their treasure-filled chests, they each got to take home a copy of the movie!
Our Pirates party, featuring Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides made a wonderful way to begin the Halloween celebration this weekend – the kids got to play dress up in their Pirate accessories, eat candy, and go home with a real treat – a movie!
