So, I'm trying to piece together some tidbits for the kiddos "pirate party" for their birthday coming up in a few weeks. You already saw the preliminary invitation...
Well, I was running to Meijer for a late night, odds'n'ends grocery stop and saw these cool (though little) inflatable kids pools. Now, since their party is in the middle of June and the weather is hot, we had already been planning on having a water balloon fight. I even found packs of all black water ballons (intended for 40th b-day parties, I guess), so they could fire "cannon balls" at each other.
But, can you believe it? I found pirate ships!
And the best part? They were clearancing them out already, so they were only $15! So, of course, I picked up two of them so they can split up into teams, load a styrofoam chest (treasure chest) up with cannon balls, and have a real out and out battle! It's a bunch of 4-6 year olds, so I think they'll have a blast!
