A few weeks ago you heard me talking about fun ways to make a little Under the Sea party for your family this summer!! Today I’m sharing with you a few cute ways I made a special evening with my kiddos to celebrate summer and share a new Fish Bowl Fun Recipe I found on the Kraft website!
The full recipe can be located here. Essentially you’re just creating an individual sized cup with JELL-O Berry Blue flavor gelatin, adding some marshmallows and vanilla wafers at the bottom, then sticking in your candy fish to top the whole thing off! The whole treat takes under 20 minutes of actual preparation time and my kids loved them!!
I put them in individual little glasses I bought a long time ago, let them sit overnight to harden, and voila! An easy summer treat that was perfect after a night of enjoying pizza, running through the sprinkler and spending time together as a family!!
On my back deck I set it up a little more special than usual with an “under the sea” theme and coordinating blue decor!! Cute little polka dot blue plates adorned the table, we hung some little “bubbles” around the deck for decoration and under the umbrella some jelly fish took residence for a little added fun!! I added a “wavy” table cloth to the table to look like waves breaking in front of our plates and served pizza for dinner.
I spent less than $10 on decorations and we had a blast playing in the yard, spraying each other with the sprinkler and soaking up the sun.
I’ve mentioned this before and I will again…I’m a huge believer in making memories with my kids. Memories are things they’ll cherish most as they get older over any other gift you can give them. Give them memories of awesome times you had over the summer. They don’t have to be grand, expensive, or even Pinterest-worthy, they just have to be heartfelt and made with love and that’s all your kids will care about.
