We live in MI, and money is tight this year. Normally we have money saved up for the party, but this year we have had a lot of unexpected expenses..new roof and garage walls, root canals, broken wrists (clumsy pubescent daughter, lol) tires, the list goes on and on....
Needles to say, its a HUGE milestone birthday, and I want to do it up right. Birthdays have always been a BIG thing in our family. As far as decorations, plates, napkins, ect..I'm covered. I've been picking things up here and there and I think I'm good. But games? Activities? Locations? I'm lost!! lol
He wants to have a treasure hunt. I have purchased the "jewels and gold" to fill the treasure chest, but how do you plan a treasure hunt in a small basement for 20 or so kids?! LOL And I would say we do it outside, but late November is snowing and freezing outside, and all the kids are coming in pirate costumes. (my sons request)
Any suggestions or tips would be FANTASTIC! :) I've never made a pirate map or planned a treasure hunt before..lol If they were a little older, I think I would have an easier time..I could set it up like a scavenger hunt almost, but even then, space is an issue.. :(
