Under_the_Sea_Backrop_Photo_PropsPrintA children’s birthday party can be the perfect time to roll up your crafty sleeves and get creative. When we were recently given a box full of foam balls from Floracraft® Make It:Fun® and we decided to use them for something other than paper flowers or floral arrangements. A children’s birthday party with an underwater theme was our ultimate choice (over a fair few crazy and creative ideas!). These fab foam balls are perfect for painting and using as bubbles for an underwater backdrop. They come in a lot of different sizes and are super light weight, meaning they can be strung together and hung from the ceiling or a door frame really easily. To compliment our bubbly backdrop we added a few foam ball jelly fish and designed these super cute fishy friends for the kiddos to use as photo props. This set of props also includes a starfish and shells to make a pretty headband or necklace and a template for snorkel gear. Use these puppets, props and wall hanging as a great photo backdrop for the birthday party and you’ll be sure to get some cracking shots for the album. I have included an SVG cut file as well as a PDF of templates so you can simply cut the characters and glue their details into place – simple enough even for the kiddos to do. For our backdrop we used a combination of 2, 3 and 4 inch foam balls and for the jellyfish we used 6 inch foam balls. We love to see our projects out there in the world so if you have an Under the Sea children’s birthday party please do share your pictures with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the #liagriffith hashtag. Enjoy! ~Lia
