Put lots of blue balloons on the floor- to create the sea. Use blue streamer to decorate windows and doorways, so it looks like waterfalls. Hang lots of blue tulle, and blue wave decoration.

Put blue lights around doorways and decorate the glass doors with fish clings. Cut out lots of fishes from craft foam and stapled them onto the wall, fireplace and over all the furniture. Hang fishnets from the ceiling. If you are having the party at night, hang coloured Christmas lights, (covered with netting).

Put big shells all over the house and a shell shape soap in the bathroom. Put stuffed sea animals around the party room and Little Mermaid Ariel posters on the walls. If you have a yard, rent a bubble machine to create sea bubbles around the yard.

Use a blue table cloth and decorated the table with shells and a mini-wood chests filled with plastic pearls, chocolate gold coins and sea shells. Use cups, plates, napkins, etc with Ariel's face on. For a centrepiece, place a large glass fish bowl with a couple of small fishes swimming around.

Ariel's Treasure Hunt
Before the party make a treasure map with your computer. Place different Ariel related items (plastic shells, Ariel figures, etc), around the house and let the kids find them.

Fishing Pole
Make fishing pole out of a stick with a magnet on the end. Let the kids catch a fish made out of paper with magnets on the back, in a mini pool. Whatever number the fish has on their back, that's how many candies the kids get.

Fish Relay
Divide the children into two teams. Place equal number of goldfish shaped crackers in two shallow containers and place them 15 to 20 feet from the teams. Give each team a spoon. One at a time the children have to run to the container, pick up a goldfish with the spoon, return to their group, drop the goldfish into the empty container and hand the spoon to the next runner. The fastest team, wins!

Bubble Station
Lots of fun and the kids love to blow bubbles.
