Thankful Thursday Pirate Project

The Thankful Thursday challenge at Crazy About Cricut for this week is to make a project with a Pirate theme! Arrgghh! For this fun pirate party, I started out by taking a picture of each child and then I made a tag for each of them to wear. They loved that they had their picture on them and it was like their badge for the party :)

I made my daughter a cute pirate bow since she is really into bows right now and it was a joint party for her and her brother.

I made a pirate cake and decorated it with Oreo tube cookies, Rolos, and square grid looking pretzels for the windows. I used my Cricut and the Life's a Beach cart to make the pirate flag and put it on a bendy straw. Then I dyed coconut flakes with blue food coloring and floated some Swedish fish in the water :)

We sent the kids on a treasure hunt for their goodies. I made each of the kids a shirt with the pirate logo on the front saying "Where there be Pirates, there be a Party!" and their names on the back. I even made Pirate Princess shirts for the girls. They loved them!

Such an awesome party, and girls and boys all got in on the fun! Now make sure to head over to Crazy About Cricut and check out all the awesome Design Team projects and enter your family's pirate project and don't forget Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th! Have a fun day!
