The Little Mermaid
We were recently at a birthday party for a 3 year old girl. The theme of the party was 'The Little Mermaid' and the mom (with a little bit of coloring and gluing help from the birthday girl) had made invitations with The Little Mermaid on them.
The cake had The Little Mermaid on it and the paper supplies (napkins, plates and cups) were all from the same theme. They served finger foods such as pizza bites, a veggie tray, a fruit tray, corn dogs, and fish sticks. There was juice and water and Kool Aid to drink. Since it was a rainy day, the parents set up their WII in the garage for all of the kids who wanted to to have room and games to play.
They had some friends who played around at doing balloon animals there and they did balloon animals for all of the kids who wanted them.
Most kids asked for 2 or 3 of the animals and some of the kids had swords made and had mock sword fights in another area of the garage.
The balloons were not done by a professional but added a lot to the party for the kids who were too young to play with the WII.
The parents had cleared this with all of the other parents before the party and gave away as thank you for coming gifts a gold fish in a small bowl. The kids were all thrilled by this and I think there were plans being made to add to the collection!
