They'll love finding treasure where x marks the spot!

Idea 7: Say "Ahoy" to party pirates with Jake invitations!

Idea 10: Help Jake solve this pirate problem!

Have the kids take turns playing this pirate version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, with stickers instead of pins! Blindfold the kids, then let them have a go at this Jake and the Never Land Pirates party game where they try to stick a doubloon sticker on top of Jake's treasure chest. When everyone's had a turn, the person with the doubloon closest to the correct spot earns some treasure of their own!

Load a pull-string Jake and the Never Land Pirates pinata full of themed treats and favors, then let each member of the birthday crew pull a string until the "magic" ribbon releases all the goodies!

Idea 12: Create arr-worthy pirate place-settings!

Get kids to drop anchor when it's time to eat with Jake and the Never Land Pirates place-settings! Start with a map-printed table cover, then add tableware and treasure like eyepatches, doubloons and blowouts for the pirates to play with until the cake arrives.

Idea 13: Set sail with an easy DIY decoration!

Make a pirate sail for your party room with striped gift wrap and curling ribbon. Roll out three feet of wrapping paper, then cut small holes on the top and thread with ribbon.

Raise your DIY sail above the favors table or somewhere else sure to be seen by the pirate crew!
