A Mermaid/Pirate Birthday Party
When I asked my kids what theme they wanted for their birthday party my daughter said a Secret Mermaid party based on one of her favorite books right now The Secret Mermaid and my son pirate because he loves all things pirate and the book On a Pirate Ship. So a Mermaid/Pirate party I started to plan. The party was planned for a Sunday afternoon 1-3pm outside.
For the first hour or so I planned activities. These activities included mermaid coloring sheets at one table, decorating booty bags (simple 12” drawstring bags I made) with markers at another, and mermaid tails at a third table.
For the pouches I used scraps of fabric that someone was giving away and embroidery floss I had already around. The tails I cutout of cardstock and got the stickers from Ocean State Job Lot for a $1. I also put out a huge box to use as a pirate ship.
Once everyone arrived around 2:15 we started the treasure hunt. For the treasure hunt I had hidden four treasure buckets around the yard. I then gave the group of party goers a rhyming clue and then they had to find each treasure as a group. After the hunt we had cake and open presents. My kids said it was an awesome party.
