My Review:  

I usually buy store bought ready to use party stuff but I was really surprised at how much fun this is and it's a great way to "bond with the kids" Thank you Pirate Party Games for giving me the opportunity to review your product. I had a positive experience printing the games from my home computer. My six year old daughter had a blast with all the Pirate Nature Scavenger Hunt for Kids! She loved making up her own Island and went on a scavanger hunt outdoors in our front yard. The file is easy to download and print. The characters are bold and colorful. The scrambled clue words along with the hunt are a great way to get kids thinking! 

Pin The Parrot On The Pirate! perfect for birthdays! There are different size and color options.
Simple version (color)  Large version (color)
Simple version (mono) Large version (mono) this means more fun for kids! they get to color this.
Pirate Language Game: is great for older kids who can relate to Facebook Language (this taught me a thing or two!  ha ha)
Pirate MadLibs: older kids will love this.
Pirate Newlywed Games is great for adults.
Balloon Pirate Crafts fro kids: Kids decorate their balloons with their selected cut-outs.  Basic materials are needed: glue, scissors, markers and crayons (This will keep them busy for a while! hint hint!)
Pirate Party Games: H-ARRR-ible Pirate Jokes Game: Enjoyed this. We did this as a family and had a blast. The answers the kids came up with were really hillarious!
Pirate Party Games: Pirate Trivi-AAAR: Fun for the grown ups....I laughed when I read What is the poop!
Pirate Party Games: Shoot the Boot Drinking Game For Adults: Adults, when playing this game please do not drive!    ha ha!

Pirate Party Poster and Placemat: This is really nice and I had them laminated to last.
Printable Treasure Map Template and Pirates: Kids love to create their own island. There are 10 different maps to choose from. A larger version is available also.

There are more downloadable fun.  Next time you have a birthday party try this out and you won't regret it. Just be ready for lots of ARRRRRRR FUN!
I recommend this product for hours and hours of family and friend fun.
