Little Mermaid Party
 
 
We had our Little Mermaid party at the community pool which was very reasonable to rent for an hour. If you are going to do this, ensure that you have enough adult supervision that you are able to enjoy the experience too! We had 11 children and 17 adults and it was a HUGE success.

You can also set up a children's pool in the backyard if this is a summer party.

DECORATIONS

Indoors
Hang blue streamers from the ceiling to create an underwater atmosphere.

Outdoors
Set up a waterplay area (with or without actual water) and characters from the Little Mermaid.

GAMES

Outdoor Games

Water Limbo
Use your hose for the limbo stick.

Water Balloon Toss
Fill them up in advance.

Ursela Ring Toss Game
Throw rings on the octopus legs.

Fish Pond, Wet Sponge Toss

Water Race
You will need 4 buckets (2 filled with water, 2 empty) and 2 identical sized soup ladles
Divide the group into 2 teams.
They fill their ladle and run to the empty pail, dumping the water in, then race back to hand off to the next team member
Once everyone has gone, you measure the amount of water in the pails to see which team filled the pails with the most water.

INDOOR GAMES

Fish Pond

Ursela Ring Toss Game

Scuttle's Mixed Up Game
Have a tray of objects from the movie. For example, a fork (dinglehopper).
Have the children write down the movie name for each object.

FOOD

Tuna and Salmon Pinwheels:
Mix with mayonaise, butter slice of bread (square bread works best) and spread with mixture, roll into a jellyroll and cut into pinwheels.

Seaweed Salad

The Cake:
It can be decorated with characters from the movie, or made into an underwater grotto using plastic fish and green licorice for plants.

LOOT BAGS
Visit Party stores and dollar stores frequently and purchase items that relate to your theme for the loot bags. This is one of the most enjoyable parts of planning the party and the best part... you get to be there and watch the children's faces when they receive your awesome theme-based loot bags!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Pail and Shovel For the Goodies
  • Any Ariel or Little Mermaid Merchandise
  • Plastic Fish
  • Stickers
  • Sunkist Shark Funfruits
  • Marine beanies
  • Fishing Rods
