Last week I had a Peter Pan Playdate at my house. The kids had so much fun dressing up like pirates and fairies.
All you needed to get into the party was Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust!
Welcome to Neverland…
I had this sign greeting the kids when they walked in with Peter Pan on it and the Rulez of Neverland.
I love to reuse Cardboard boxes and making things with them. Not only did I make a Peter Pan sign but I also made this cute sign pointing to different locations in Neverland.
The first stop in the playdate I am going to take you to is the Lost Boys Area. Here my husband and I made a Teepee.
See directions for the teepee —-> click here
* I made the flag banner with construction paper and twine and I made the signs using scrap pieces of cardboard and paint.*
I also made Crocodile Creek.
Here I laid out a blue tarp ( to look like water) and a piece of wood (for the plank).
Of course Crocodile Creek needs the Tic Toc Croc so I made a Bottle Crocodile —-> directions here
I put our little slide on the tarp as well, for the kids to slide down and walk the plank.
I made a pirate scope by painting a Styrofoam hot/cold cup and a paper towel roll and gluing them together.
Then on Pinterest I saw these adorable Captain Hook hands made out of solo cups and angers. Instead of hangers I just rolled the aluminum foil to look like hooks so the kids did not get hurt.
Also, on Pinterest I saw a game called feed the Tic Toc Croc and I made that too for the kids. Using a cardboard piece I painted the croc on the box and cut a hole where his mouth is. They just threw bean bags into the crocs’ mouth.
Next, I made Pixie Hollow. Here the girls were able to get their wings and fairy wands to dress up with.
* You can purchase the wings from your local dollar tree.*
I also had a box for the kids to make a pixie dust necklace take home with them.
All the necklace was made with were ribbon, little bags, a white label with Pixie Dust written on it and my pixie dust was glitter. I had a container for the kids to scoop their pixie dust from and put in the bag.
I made a tea area for the kids to play with in Pixie Hollow. I first made cute mushroom seats for the kids to sit on using just red fabric and white paint.
I saw how easy it was to make a hula hoop hideout on Alanna George Craft Page —> click here
I still have it hanging from my tree, my daughter loves playing under it.
I had crafts for the kids to make pirate swords and pirate hats. These were all bought from Oriental Trading Company.
The kids looked so cute…
Every pirate loves treasure so I had a container filled with sand, gems and coins for the kids to collect.
And no Pirate Playdate would be complete if there wasn’t a treasure hunt… so I had the kids look around the yard at the end of the playdate. Inside was gold coins, necklaces and rings.
My Treasure Chest was The Jake and the Neverland Pirates Pull- Ups Training kit now available.
Hope you have a Great Peter Pan Playdate and this blog post helps you make your party so much fun on a small budget.
