Celebrating Talk like a Pirate Day with Jake and the Neverland Pirates!

Yes, today is Talk Like A Pirate Day mateys! And thanks to Disney and Jake and the Neverland Pirates, I had the chance to celebrate with my kids and some of their close friends this weekend. We threw an early Talk Like A Pirate Day, full of costumes, treats and of course The new Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Yo Ho Matey's Away! DVD which will be available in stores September 27!

Now I must warn you, my kids think they are pirates already! They run around the house squinting (they can't wink yet) and saying "argh! I'm a pirate". They love pirates so much that I'm actually dressing up like a pirate this Halloween. (Think Keira Knightly from Pirates of the Caribbean). That made this perfect timing for us to throw a Pirate party. So here's what I did. I took all the awesome goodies I was sent and made treat bags for all the kids:

The treats were:
  • a pirate hat
  • eye patch
  • two tattoos
  • two golden doubloons (edible of course)
  • two non edible golden doubloons 
  • pirate bandana
  • skull and crossbones necklace (not pictured...my son ran off with it...hehehe)
  • Jake and the Neverland Pirates DVD
  • and a treat bag to put all the pirate booty in!
The kids were estatic! They broke into the bags and started dressing up. Here's the pictures:



You can see in the bottom right picture my son was trying to make a pirate face and say, "ARGH"! And what's a party without deep sea treats. We made some deep sea diving aquariums with fish (blue jello with shark bites fruit snacks) and some hidden pirates gold (kix cereal with blue yogurt and shark bites fruits snacks swimming on top). Now the pictures aren't too pretty but the snacks were super yummy! (There was also cannonballs (peanut butter balls) but the parents ate them up...LOL



Finally, we went upstairs to the playroom where we had Jake and the Neverland Pirates matching game along with the DVD playing. We did pirate Karoke and then watched one of the episodes. I'll be posting a review on the DVD tomorrow so stay tuned! And mateys, don't forget to talk like a pirate all day! We're even going to have a pirate themed dinner tonight! I just have to figure out what to fix! =)

Disclosure: I was provided with the DVDs and materials for this party along with a GC to purchase snacks by Disney in exchange for throwing the party and later posting a review of the DVD.
