JAWSome Shark Party Details:
This is what Shara said about planning the party- “When I asked my son what kind of party he wanted for his fourth birthday and he said SHARKS!, I had no idea that his party would end up happening during Shark Week! It made planning the party a lot easier since there were shark things everywhere I looked. I spent a ton of time on DIY details like a shark feeding frenzy wreath, pin on shark fins, and cut out sharks that were all over the house.
I served loads of shark-themed food, like Shark Bait sandwiches (tuna salad), Shark Fin sandwiches (cheese triangles), Slow Swimmer Salsa & Sea Algae Guacamole with Fins (blue tortilla chips), Shark Teeth (Bugles), Whale & Goldfish crackers, Vegetarian Shark Food (crudités), Watermelon Shark fruit salad (carved by my husband, after I showed him pictures on Pinterest and told him it would be easy) and Sea Dogs (hot dogs). For dessert and sweet treats, there were Great White Sugar Cookies, Fish Kabobs (gummy fish and shark candies on a stick), Life Preservers (mini sugar donuts with red gel icing), Jaws cupcakes (vanilla cake with vanilla whipped frosting and gummy sharks), Shark Attack cupcakes (blue velvet cake with coconut cream cheese icing and fondant fins). The drink station was complete with Chum Punch and Shark Infested Lemonade.
To keep the little ones busy having a fun time, there were different activity stations set up:
Shark Dress Up bucket (shark/sailor/captain costumes, beach ball, surfboard, sunglasses, flower leis, blow up shark, beach paraphernalia)
Air Swimmer remote-controlled helium shark
Pin the Fin on the Shark
Feed the Shark beanbag game
Make Your Own Shark craft station
Shark coloring pages
Lets Go Fishing game
Finding Nemo movie
Party favors were placed in a sand pail. Inside were tons of fun shark stuff, like ‘shark tank’ bubbles, ‘under the sea’ coloring book, shark stickers and tattoos, bag of shark and fish gummy candies, shark squirter toy, fish stamps, sunglasses & a glow bracelet. Older kids and adults got a fish kabob to take home.”
