Someone has just turned seven over here. Well, she's been seven for a few weeks now, but we're all still getting used to it.
The theme? Sea creatures. Not that she particularly loves any animal that lives in the sea, but a few months ago we came across an idea to make a little terrarium in a jar, plop a plastic sea creature in there, and presto you have a mini ocean garden.
We happened to have, oh, a million extra jars around here, so this craft we could manage.
By the way, when did birthdays start having themes? When I was a kid, the theme was cake and a few presents. Every year.
Back to the sea creature theme.
We invited seven friends.
We had Pin the Arm/Leg on the Octopus.
Go Fishing For a Fabric Fish.
Red Pepper with Hummus Octopus.
And Sea Creature Cupcakes.
Happy Birthday, little sea creature!
