Under the Sea: Mermaid Party

Since sloan loves the little mermaid, we threw a Mermaid Party for her. I did not use the little mermaid exclusively because I am a fan of all mermaids.

We threw the party from 10am - 12pm. I'll let the pictures tell the story.
Sloan's teachers made her some signs that we used on the front door to our home.

Upon arrival, Sloan handed out a mermaid tail. I made one for each child; WE also had eye patches for the boys who didn't want a tail. The blue tail was for sloan. I made 12 green tails. Even piper wore one. I also made myself a mermaid skirt and Sloan a mermaid skirt with individual scales! We will try to wear these more than once!

Candy Sushi:

I also made "crab leg" carrots, celery, "sea" cucumbers, and fruit salad.

Crab Croissants, chicken salad and pb&j.

The fun:

There was also a wooden crab craft station (where you can look through the crab) for the kids to make and take home. I didn't catch a picture but you can see in this one:

We filled the room with blue and white balloons. "Life is the Bubbles". The kids had a great time running around with each other. All of the children are Sloan's classmates (or were at one time), and all of the parents work together or have a spouse that does, which made for a fun party since most everyone knew one another.

The party even made it's way into Sloan's room


Cupcake time!

Piper enjoyed all the sweet cuddles:

Sneaky girl wanting to open her gifts!

My friend Amy made a collage of the day and sent it to me. 

Our big gift to sloan is always her party, but this bicycle comes in a close second! I sure do enjoy celebrating my children and doing whatever I can to make their childhoods the best they can be!
