What could be a more perfect pool party theme than a Little Mermaid Party?! It doesn't need to be anyone's birthday - just a fun excuse to get a bunch of little mermaids together for a fun afternoon at the pool.
We host an annual Under the Sea Party/Mermaid party every summer - adding new games and decorations based on the ages of the kids and their ability to swim.
Little Mermaid party supplies are in abundance - you can find them at local stores like Target, Hobby Lobby, or party supply stores.
You can buy Little Mermaid plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths along with party supply bags and banners. If you want to make your shopping really convenient you can go on line to Amazon. They
sell an entire party package that includes all your paper good.
If you enjoy being creative you can make and create some of your own party supplies and even have fun doing it with your kids.Little Mermaid Party Kit (Serves 8)
