Pirate Transformation Station

Hey, friends!  We’re busy here in the Artsy House gearing up for Little Crafter’s fifth birthday!  He chose to have a Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme for his party this year and he made it very clear that he actually wanted his friends to get to BE pirates and do pirate-y things.  It’s been a lot of fun planning a series of stations for our little guests to visit with fun activities, games, and more.  I’ll be sharing all of them over the next week or so, but take a look at the first station they’ll experience when they arrive at the pirate party!

Pirate Transformation Station

In case you’ve never seen Jake and the Neverland Pirates, one of Jake’s signature things is his red headband.  So, at the Pirate Transformation Station, each little matey will start by getting a strip of red fabric tied around his or her head.


Next, each little pirate will get to choose a temporary tattoo from the bowl and have it applied to their arm or hand.


The last step is to get face paint!  Beards, scars, mustaches…anything and everything they need to look like ‘real’ pirates!

I decided to practice my painting skills on my very eager volunteer…what do you think?  I seriously started laughing hysterically when I finished the ‘stache…

I mean, seriously.  How adorable is that?!  Cutest pirate I’ve ever seen!

So, each little matey who walks through the door will get the full pirate treatment…headband, tattoo, and face paint…before heading on to the next fun activity!
What do you think?  Would you like to stop by the Pirate Transformation Station too?

Hugs & Glitter,

  1. Love your pirate party! I noticed you posted the estimation station document (thanks so much….I using it for my 5 year olds party). I was wondering if you would be willing to post the Pirate Transformation document.

    Thanks! I love your party!
