D.I.Y. Beach-themed Party
Whether you live by the shore or call the desert home, a seaworthy party is perfect for some serious, summertime fun. Here’s a how-to guide to crocheting your kiddo a party that’s fit for her beach-lovin’ buddies!
A simple, refreshments table featuring a sea centerpiece like Octavia Octopus with set the stage.
Go bubbly with white, pom-pom garlands like this one from Rusdens. I suggest using a yarn like Caron Simply Soft, and different sized Pom-pom Makers to create copious amounts of affordable, perfect-shaped bubbles.
Pinterest is filled with ideas for beach-worthy bites. Here are just a few of my favorites: Sea Monster Punch (Better Homes & Gardens), Creature Cookies (Miss Cuit), Shark Bite Watermelon (source unknown), and Starfish Sandwiches.
Go old-school with a game like, Cornhole but with an oceanic twist! This totally tubular version from, Girl with a Surfboard is perfect. In lieu of plain, ol’ beanbags stuff Sea Songs Conch Shells with un-popped corn, instead!
The Game Prize
Give victorious kids a Crabby Patsy prize after a sandcastle competition, or games like Sea Creature Cornhole (see above) and Pin the Fin on the Fish!
It never ceases to amaze me how much money we as parents spend on favor bags, filled with junk that’ll either give your kid cavities or go straight into the post-party trash. Go waste-free with water inspired, Bubbles the Fish favors!
Here’s wishing you an ocean-sized summer of fun. Happy hooking!
