Party Ideas - Cardboard Pirate Ship Photo Booth

Want to make a big splash at your upcoming Pirate themed party? Create a unique backdrop for all those fantastic Pirate photos, using nothing but a few large boxes, some tape, paint, string, and a little time. Every Pirate needs a good ship, right? Make just the bow for your photo booth, or make the whole thing, and after the party it becomes a playhouse for your little Swashbuckler! Just think of all the grand adventures he'll have on the high seas in his very own custom built Pirate ship!

Here's what you'll need: 
  • Two pieces of cardboard (as big as possible – you can see how big theirs are relative to the scissors and plate). (Use more to build a full ship)
  • Stanley knife (much better than scissors for this craft)
  • Acrylic paints in blue, white, gold (or yellow) and brown
  • Duct tape
  • String

Have one of our wonderful Pirates come and teach pirate lesson (how to properly say "arrrr!"), do face painting (scars and eye patches and tattoos!), twist balloon swords for each of your guests, and play Pirate games (Walk the Plank, Cannonball toss, etc), then pose for pictures with your guests. :)
