Under-the-sea extravaganza

If you’ve got a little adventurer, he'll love a sea-theme bash.

How to plan it
-Start with your child’s favorite underwater animals and designate a room in your house to host the deep sea dive.
-Print decorative cut-outs and hang them all over.
-Decorate with blue and green streamers to resemble water and seaweed.
-Hide cool new “species” of fish all over the room, and arm your adventurers with a top secret map! They’ll have to work together to find and identify these new animals to earn a treat once they're done.
--Serve goldfish, Swedish fish, and fish-shaped sandwiches (use a cookie cutter).
