Jake and the Never Land Pirates Party – Activities:

What would a pirate party be without a fun treasure hunt?! There are so many fun ways to mix Jake and the Never Land Pirates in with a fun treasure hunt. You could set it up that Peter Pan has left clues for the kids to find on the way to the hidden treasure. Of course there will be obstacles to overcome – Captain Hook insists on it!

You can start your game by letting all your little pirates know the pirate password – “Yo Ho Ho!”. Your treasure hunt can consist of fun activities like solving pirate problems together and overcoming obstacles. After the players solve each pirate problem, they can be awarded some gold doubloons (chocolate gold coins). As you award the gold doubloons after each problem, you could say “Grab ’em & Go!” like the popular line from the TV show.

The treasure hunt could lead to a treasure chest filled with the favor bags for each of the little pirates to take home. You could leave a big “X” to mark the spot of the treasure.

Some examples of clues & challenges you can leave along the path of the treasure hunt include:

  • Set out green & brown streamer paper tangled over the ground to look like a swamp (Crocodile Creek). You can cut out grey circles to represent stones. One of the challenges could be for all the little pirates to hop on the stones across the swamp.
  • A sign that says “To Pirate Island!”
  • A sign that says “To Skull Rock”
  • A sign that says “This Way Crew!”
  • The little pirates could be asked to walk the plank by walking on a straight line across a path full of obstacles.
  • Set a challenge of “hoisting the sail” where the players are given material and sticks and asked to build a new sail for Bucky.
  • Set a “full speed ahead” challenge where players pair up for relay races to carry an arm full of coconuts past a finish line.
  • A sign that says “Set sail on the Never Sea!”

Along the way, Captain Hook could try to detour them by leaving little notes like:

  • “Blast You Puny Pirates!”
  • “What in Blazes?!”

The players will know it was Captain Hook trying to derail their plans if you leave some of Captain Hook’s belongings that he accidentally left behind. Some ideas include:

  • a white feather from his hat
  • his hook hand
  • Smee’s red hat

You could also provide bandanas or pirate hats to the guests to help them look like little pirates. Jake and the Never Land Pirates Party - Activities

  • Skully’s Crackers and Cheese

  • Fish Sticks & Chips
