Top Ten Clues for a Pirate Party Treasure Hunt

The pirate invitations have been sent, the costumes are adorned, the table is set and the countdown has begun.

Everyone loves a pirate party and no pirate party is complete without a treasure hunt for pirate loot! Begin by gathering the supplies you will need to produce the treasure hunt clue cards. Get some brown craft paper from your local stationary store and print the clue cards on your home computer. Have fun with the style of your font. The more pirate-y the better! Or for the eco-minded or less tech-savvy parent, you can cut clue cards from brown paper shopping bags and handwrite your clues. You can even burn the edges of the craft paper to create an old-timey look.

To write your clues, think of places around your home and yard that are your child’s favorite places to play or places they go to every day, like the refrigerator or the mailbox. Write a list of places and then have fun creating clues that rhyme. We’ve given our top ten treasure hunt clues below as a starting point for you.

On the day of the pirate treasure hunt, place each clue where it can be seen by the kids and have an adult or older kid that can read present at each stop to read the clue card and tell the kids where to go next. At location of the last treasure hunt clue, place a large treasure box filled with their favor bags full of loot!

To get you started, here are 10 treasure hunt clues to inspire you:
