How to organize the birth of a child in pirate style
Birthday in a pirate style is one of the favorite themes of adults and children. Everyone is happily immersed in this world of brave thugs and gay bandits, sung in novels and movies. Let's try to organize such a holiday on our own.
The most important thing to understand is that there are no trifles in such an important matter as the preparation for holding a children's birthday and there cannot be. So make a plan and follow it strictly.
Invitations need to be done, even if the children are seen every day. It is always nice to receive official invitations, especially if they are originally decorated. For example, in the form of scrolls invested in a bottle, or a fragment of a card with burnt edges, or "black marks" made of plasticine. Involve them in making postcards for the birthday person so that he takes part in the preparation process. This will create an additional festive mood for him.
- Meeting with guests.
- Introduction to the theme of the birthday, changing clothes, aqua-grime.
- Raising the flag and uttering the "Oath".
- The beginning of the movement behind the treasure. Games should go on increasing - from calm to mobile.
- In the middle of the way, take a short break. Napote the seekers with "Rom", lead a culinary game or solve the charade and again on the road.
- When the treasure is found, the whole team goes to the table.
- Unrestrained dances.
- Salute or launch of helium balloons with wishes to the birthday man.
- Gifts to guests and the descent of the flag.
- Seeing guests.
To create a pirate entourage you will need bandanas and cockles for all children, weapons, pirate flags, vests, blindfolds. Almost all of the above can be bought in the store or made with your own hands with the child. Of course, you can shift the responsibility to prepare costumes for the guests themselves, but in this case it may turn out that your child will be the only pirate on his own holiday and holding a birthday will turn into a fiasco.
Buy a set of face painting to draw bruises and scars on the day of the holiday. Practice on paper in advance so as not to remember on the day of the holiday what a mustache or black eye looks like.
Think carefully about the decoration of the surrounding space with balloons with pirate symbols, parrots, ruins, the remains of ships, palm trees, skeletons and everything your fantasy can reach.
Of the props, you, above all, need a treasure chest, which you can glue from a cardboard box and paint with gouache. It should be filled with sweets in gold and silver wrappers, bright candies and chocolate coins. Prepare shovels and a card cut into different pieces with a paved route. The route will depend on the place allocated for the birthday, and selected games. At the map, put symbolic objects-obstacles (fish skeleton - "fishing", octopus - "putanka", etc.)
These are not necessarily complex devices and tools. All that you need for games, there is in your house. For example, plastic bottles instead of pins, fishing rod, rope, paper and pens, balloons, skewers, tubes for cocktails. Think up and beautifully decorate the "Pirate's Oath", which include words of praise and devotion to the captain-birthday.
Choose the right music for contests and dances. Determine where the source of the sound will be located and how the current will be fed to it.
The menu must contain a drink with the inscription "Rum", and a large cauldron, for example with pilaf, from which it is possible to eat together, pushing the neighbor with elbows, or baked ham on the spit. Although there will be enough and just an innocent chicken fried in the oven, the main thing is to serve the dish properly. Will be popular sandwiches-boats or pancake sacks filled with stylized bags of money. And, of course, fruit and pirate festive cake.
Do not forget about the design of the table and dishes. Napkins, tied with a rope with an anchor, a skull and bones on tablecloths, personal cards of guests on a "black label" made of plasticine - all these details will help make your baby's birthday celebration simply unforgettable.
And the last. Make small surprises - compliments to guests in the form of souvenirs for memory or sweet bonbonierok in the form of old wallet with part of the treasure. Each child must take away from the holiday not only an excess of impressions, but also a counter gift, which shows how dear and interesting the birthday person is. After all, if the guests and the culprit of the celebration are satisfied, then the preparation was not in vain, and the celebration of the birthday was successful!
That's all the advice. You will certainly succeed! And next time you go to look for ideas for the birthday of the child, already armed with their own experience. This way you can lay the most important tradition in your child's life.
