Bean and Pinga are obsessed with Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It is not uncommon for them to play the music CD on full blast, and dance the day away, with Bean singing at the top of his lungs. He has been begging to have a pirate party for months. His birthday isn't until April though, so I saw no reason to have a party. But then Disney offered to supply all the decorations for me to host a party in honor of the new CD, Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Yo Ho Matey! So then it was kind of a no brainer, and Bean and Pinga got to have their party. Arrr! Time for pictures:
|A little swashbuckling|
|The spread. Lots of yummy treats, including Chick- fil-A for breakfast!|
|Jake coloring activities|
|We had a treasure chest full of eye patches, necklaces and other accessories that the kids could dress themselves up in. This was a big hit!|
|Bean made his own treasure map for the Simon Says game (except our version was called The Map Says.)|
|Every family got to take home their own copy of the new CD! Pinga loves carrying hers around.|
Of course we had the CD playing throughout the party and we played a dancing game to one of the tracks called "Belay." When you hear the word "belay" you have to stop moving. Here's a clip of the kids in action:
Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Yo Ho Matey! is being released today. It has already become the bedtime CD of choice for my kids. We hope all of our friends love it as much as we do!
*Thank you to Disney for supplying all the great decorations and CDs for our party!
