Kids Camping | Talk Like a Pirate

Talk like a Pirate

Celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day

Each year on September 19 people around the world celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day. This year you can celebrate this fun day with a few of these fun activities. So, this September 19, put on your favorite pirate costume, learn to talk like a pirate and have a fun and silly day.

The first step in celebrating International Talk Like A Pirate Day is to learn how to talk like a pirate. Most pirate lingo is no longer used and is fairly unfamiliar to most of us. Before the actual day spend some time researching the lingo and practice using it on your own. With the help of an adult look up some appropriate children's pirate lingo. You can find songs, glossaries of words and more that are excellent resources for practicing your pirate talking skills.

Next you will need to have a proper pirate costume to wear on International Talk Like A Pirate Day. This year the day falls on a Monday, so you should make sure to check ahead if its ok to wear  your costume to school. If you can't wear the costume to school you can have a fun after school celebration where you and your friends can all wear your pirate costumes.

Your costume can have wooden legs, pirate boots and hat, an eyepatch, a parrot and many other classic pirate items. Just be sure to make your pirate costume suit your pirate personality, using the fun costume options you have.

There are also plenty of fun games and activities you can do with your parents and friends to celebrate this special day. One great activity is to design a treasure hunt, which could also be a scavenger hunt. Find a good pirate prize, like chocolate gold coins, or other suitable pirate booty. You can also have a variety of small items to hide at clue locations. Place the treasure in a good hiding spot and create a set of pirate clues. You can even create a treasure map with an x marking the spot that is missing the key points, so you have to fill it in as you solve clues. You and your friends can follow the clues to find the hidden treasure and claim the prize.

Other fun activities include making fun pirate hats, making pirate themed decorations like treasure chests and more. If you want to have a really fancy party you can even serve pirate-themed food, like a cake shaped or decorated with a pirate ship.

There are endless ways to celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day. The key to having a great celebration is having fun and being silly spending a day talking like a pirate.
