Mermaid themed party - craft ideas to match =]
I've said I'd help out at my friends younger sister's birthday party a week on sunday. She'll be 5 years old and is having a mermaid/sailor type theme party and her paretns want to do some simple craty stuff within them if possible
Does anyone have any Ideas I could use??
Thanks in advance!! xx
Okay this is something I am thinking about doing. You can make little mini canvas totes. With fabric markers or sharpie you can draw sailor/mermaid themed stuff on them. And you can have the kids color them. Also have them filled with goodies. And that is their party favors. (And if you want to or the parents want to, if you put a piece of fabric or paper over the coloring then iron it. If fuses the crayon onto to fabric. And then you can wash it, on delicate, and hang dry.)
Hope that helps!
oooh sounds nice, bubbles! get bubble wands. Great fun time.
the tote idea sounds good, umm simple shell necklaces, you can buy shells at dollar stores or craft stores...
decorate their own cookies or cupcakes, could get messy,but kids love to help out
get small boxes and put cheap costume jewerly and candy in them, call them treasure chests
you can always have them paint or decorate the shells (glitter and sequins are always good choices). You can leave as is or attach them to something wearable; hair clips, jewelry such as earrings (clip or peirced parts are fairly easy to find), or necklaces. Simple leis are easy enough for kids to make with a peice of string with non-sharp needle (plastic) and string platic flowers (taken apart) or flower shapes cut from felt with center hole, using colorful straws cut in 1/2 or 1 inch peices as spacers. Crayons work for a less mess fabric decoration and if you check the craft stores and craft sections or can find special fabric crayons (color on paper then iron onto fabric) or fabric markers where they can draw right on the fabric. Bags, t-shirts, or even cheap fabric sailor hats would be fun for the kids. Depending on budget and availablity or might even think about having the kids create or decorate personalized treasure chests. I'm sure if you do a search you can find some treasure chest options, or check local craft store or online part supply sites (paint, glitter, sequins, small shells, beads, stickers, stenciles).
Hope you have a blast.
I found that if you wrap tape tightly around the end of any fiber it can be pushed through beads /buttons etc.Then you don't have to worry about needles.100 hr working a craft table at a kids museum teaches you strange tricks.
Above all keep it simple- contained and let kids take the lead in the making
