Pirate Links

My second son recently turned 4 and requested a treasure map cake that we saw in Family Fun.  Pretty simple and fun.  We don't do friend birthday's until my boys turn 5 . . . and even then we don't do them every year.  But making these cupcakes made me think how much fun it would be to have a pirate party!  There are so many great ideas out there.  Here are a few I've collected over the past several months.

from Sew Can Do: Pirate Patch and Hat

from Yellow Mums: Treasure Chest 

from Sew Can Do: Map

from Little Page Turners:  Pirate Food

from Oopsey Daisy:  Pirate Playdate

All of these ideas make me want to just have a pirate day with my boys this summer!  Could be fun!


  1. Your cake turned out so sweet! All great ideas, pirates are such a great theme.

  2. This is such a fab idea for a pirate themed cake! My boys love anything pirate at the moment, these links will come in handy, thanks for posting.

  3. We made 2 different pirate boots from styrofoam.

  4. Thanks for the ideas. Ben's 3rd B-day is going to be a pirate party. It isn't until Nov. so I have some time to plan. This is perfect!!!!!!

  5. Your cake looks amazing! I bet your son just loved it! Thanks for these links, they're fantastic. The pirate playdate looks like so much fun. A whole new twist on scavenger hunting.

  6. I LOVE all of these fun ideas! I am planning on doing a Pirates unit for Mommy School soon, so these ideas definitely help! Thanks!
