OCEAN INVITATIONS
Cut a few fish or shell shapes out of sponges. Dip them into water-based tempera paints and press them onto cards or paper. When the paint has dried, use a blue glitter marker to write the party information on the cards. Then send them to the guests!

INVITATIONS i wanted my invitations to be memorable. i realized i couldnt handmake them, since i was inviting 40 people. so, i went to the dollar store, and bought white, chinese food boxes, and packs of seashells. i filled each food box with seashells, and i slipped in the party invitation-white invitations, printed out with beach colored lettering-and i put a sticker on the top of each food box of some sort of beach object. i then passed them out to everyone the next day. i also made a special list of close friends, who would stay later, those people got invitations on blow-up beach balls, with the invitation wriiten on them

Hope these ideas helped

What are some cool things I can do with sand and seashells I brought back from Florida?

I know how you feel. I'm from MI also and went to Key West last Feb. it was so hard coming back home. ;_;

you could drill holes in the shells and string them onto fishing line with some crystals (the kind used for jewelry or old chandelier crystals), then hang them in front of a window.

if you have some old furniture that you don't mind altering, or even if you got some unfinished stuff from a craft store, you could repaint them and then glue shells on to them. like if you had an old table you could put the shells on the legs, they can be adhered to picture or mirror frames, or really small ones could even be attached to lamp shades (around the top or bottom). I wouldn't put them on top of a table unless you're really good at mosaics and could make the top flat enough to use. :D

I've seen flat, wide bowls with the tops that curve inwards (they're used for floating candles) that you could fill with sand and scatter shells in to make your own beachy little zen garden.

if you're feeling really kitschy, you could always attach a hanger, glitter, and then use them as christmas ornaments (or every day ornaments >D).

Ocean/Dolphin Theme Cake... Weird Question...?

Don't know -

This cake looks awesome!

Towering Sand Castle Cake

This crumb-covered cake is "shore" to make a splash at any beach- or sea-themed birthday bash. Scatter some candy seashells and rocks around the base and prepare for a wave of compliments.

RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
8-inch round yellow cake
9-inch square yellow cake
2 (12-ounce) cans whipped vanilla frosting
Vanilla wafers, 12-ounce box
4 jumbo ice-cream cups
2 small ice-cream cups
6 sugar cones
Graham cracker sticks
Candy seashells and rocks (((Or use your other decorations)))

1. Use a long serrated knife to trim the top of the round cake flat, if needed. Cut a 5 1/2-inch and a 3 1/2-inch circle from the square cake, as shown, then stack all three pieces, spreading vanilla frosting between the layers. Frost the stack.


2. Use a rolling pin or food processor to crumble the wafers. With your hands, press the crumbs into the frosting, completely coating the cake. Spread frosting on the bottom of each ice-cream cup, then set them around the cake. With a serrated knife, carefully trim 1 1/2 inches from the top of 2 of the sugar cones. Set all 6 cones into the cups to complete the turrets, spreading a bit of frosting around the rims to hold them if needed.

3. Press 2 graham cracker-stick doors into the middle cake layer and rim the rest of the cake with graham cracker-stick halves. Sprinkle the remaining crumbs around the base and add a scattering of candy seashells and rocks. Serves 12.

Whats an ocean themed activity for toddlers?

Children this age love the ocean in the bottle activity: see earlier posted messages. They love to add small items: sea animal confettie, small toy fish, etc., small shells themselves to the bottle. I would suggest using a glue gun to seal the lid. You never know when the child may put it in their mouth.

Snack idea: Ocean in a Cup
Prepare blue jello according to package directions. When the jello begins to congeal, add gummy fish. Continue chilling. Crush vanilla wafers in a small plastic baggie, to resemble sand. Put a heaping spoonful in the bottom of a clear plactic tumbler style cup. Spoon finished Jello on top of crushed vanilla wafer. Enjoy!

Snack idea: Go Fishing
Give child a pretzel rod (fishing pole), peanut butter (if not nut allergies in your class or school) or marshmallow creme (could add blue food color for water), and some goldfish crackers on a paper plate. Direct children to dip pretzel (fishing pole) in peanut butter or marshmallow creme, then catch a goldfish. (The goldfish will stick onto the "butter/creme".) Take a bite and go fishing again. Children love this activity!

Read the book: THE RAINBOW FISH to your class. Discuss. Have a simple fish pattern cut out of cardstock. Let the children color the fish and glue on a wiggly eye, draw a mouth and glue different colored discs (look in craft dept. of Walmart or craft store) to look like scales. Toddlers love to act out stories, so you could give each child one colored disc. Tell them they are going to pretend to be rainbow fish one-at-a-time and swim around the room pretending they are in the ocean. Tell them that they get to share their scale with a friend just like Rainbow Fish did in the story, but it has to be a friend that only has one scale. If a friend already has two scales, share with a different friend. Demonstrate how to suck your lips in to look like a fish mouth and help them make the face. I'm sure you will get some giggles from this part. Plan on having enough time to play this activity over several times. Toddlers love repetition!

Enjoy! I hope this helps.
