Pirates are always a popular theme with kids, and for good reason. They get to be the daring hero in a quest for treasure and adventure. They can also dress up as their favorite character, fly the Jolly Roger, and even speak in pirate talk. Who wouldn’t want that?
I remember going to some great pirate themed parties as a child, and they have stood the test of time since my boys love pirates just as much. Young people have been fascinated by them for centuries! These days, people are more into pirates than ever before. That’s because of movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and Stranger Things, as well as TV shows like Once Upon A Time and Black Sails.
