So the past week has been slightly busy preparing a ‘under the sea arts and crafts’ 6th birthday party. My youngest request created panic and fear how was I going to meet the exact brief? He is quite fussy and had quite a precise wish list – including the party must include a chocolate fish birthday cake (Birthday cakes are always a challenge due to older son allergies, I don’t particularly enjoy baking and have you ever tried to find a safe fun kids birthday cake which is free of may contain – its not possible: this one was made by me to ensure nut/egg free).
As you are probably aware from other blogs he loves the sea, sea creatures and boats. Lucky for me pin interest and Baker Ross came to the rescue with a few ideas to inspire. This was his first proper birthday party with his chosen friends (as he has normally opted for a day out or we have had a small family/friends get together) and I really wanted to make it special! My eldest son always seems to get the extra attention in general despite our determination to give them equal so I guess I was very much led by mummy guilt. Made easier by the facts I love Arts and Crafts. The result were :
A Spotty Goldfish (made out of stickers and paper plates).
Stained Glass Tropical Fish / stain glass windows (wooden craft sticks/ tracing paper).
Sand shells (Baker ross).
Under the sea sticker pictures and dotty sticker pictures.
Wooden boats (painting).
A Treasure hunt.
Pass the parcel.
I can now sigh a sigh of relief as the party received positive feedback, appeared a great success and all children enjoyed leaving proud with their Art work.
GOD am I glad it’s all over and they only have birthdays once a year!!
All individual handmade projects will be posted to the project section in time for anyone interested in giving them ago.
