Under the Sea Party Ideas for Kids
Want to throw an amazing under the sea party? From mermaid crafts and games to under the sea themed decor and "sea food", your party goers are going to love this under the sea celebration! Here are some great ideas to get you started.
Under the Sea Crafts
Kids love creating, and these under the sea crafts make any aquatic-themed party go swimmingly. Check out these simple, affordable under the sea crafts for your party!
Sea Shell Crafts
First, if you're looking for a fun and easy under the sea craft for your party, consider creating a coral reef or seashell garden! Both projects start with some sea shells, which can be collected on the beach or bought online.
For the coral reef, your sea friends need to hot-glue the shells to a Styrofoam board in an interesting pattern. Once the glue is dry, paint the board in shades of blue and green.
Next, if they want to create a seashell garden, simply fill a container with sand and place the shells in it however you like. They can also add some fish or other decorations to make your garden look even more realistic.
Mermaid crafts are also perfect for your under the sea party! One of the most popular mermaid crafts is a paper plate mermaid tail. This easy craft is for both young and old alike.
First, you will need some basic supplies including paper plates, scissors, markers, and tape for your party goers to create the tail. First, cut the bottom off of two paper plates so that they are roughly in the shape of a tail fin. Next, use a marker to draw scales on the tail fins. Finally, use tape to attach the fins to the back of your waistband. Now they're ready to dive into the deep blue sea!
