Layla’s Mermaid Party

Just before Christmas we celebrated Layla’s sixth birthday. She was looking forward to having a friends party this year (we alternate every year) so she decided on a Mermaid theme.  Here are a few photo’s from Layla’s special day!

Party Games & Activities

Hanging over each chair was a mermaid tail for each guest to wear (made by a clever friend!) Each child then decorated their own jewellery box with glitter glue and lots of sparkly gems and stones. While the boxes were drying they moved outside and had to find treasure in the clam sandpit. Where hidden in the sand was bracelets, necklaces, rings, tiaras and pirate eye patches.

Fishing!

We played the simple party games – pass the parcel, musical bobs, musical statues & musical chairs.

Party Favors

Each child went home with a collection of goodies – jewellery boxes, jewellery, game prizes, a bag of lollies from the dessert table and a starfish wand. I made the wands using wooden dowel, star fish, string of pearls and ribbon. I used a hot glue gun to put them together.
