Playing pirate does not have to be creeepy nor cut some one with sword. Pirate parties can be fun.
Kids can count fake gold coins: walk the plank ( a balance beam): or go on a treasure hunt for fun party favors.
Check out my Pirates ARG! Pinterest board for swashbuckling ideas for the kids.
These pirate dress-up clothes are a steal of a deal from Heart Felt Play Store. (Editor note: Heart Felt Play Store is no longer local. But, is expanding on-line via Shopify. Edited March 1, 2017)
