Fishie Birthday Party - 3-year-old girl

For her 3rd birthday party, my daughter who is turning 3 decided she wanted a "fishie party." So many cute possibilities! Since the party was only for two friends and some cousins, we kept things pretty low-key.

When guests arrived, they decorated some cardstock sea creatures and taped them to a posterboard "ocean." I also had a fishing puzzle out, and some ocean books. Intended to have the fishing game as well, but realized it was at the cabin. Oh well - that one always ends badly at our house anyway.




 Then we had homemade pizza in the shape of a fish, with pepperoni scales.

The  kids "fished" for the prizes in their goodie bags.

Snacks were Goldfish crackers and Swedish fish.

Then we opened presents and had cake. A fishie cake of course!

I also made little fish sugar cookies for the gift bags - I thought the little "3s" on the side looked kind of like fins!



  Gift bags - uber-professionally Sharpie decorated.
And that was it! Short, simple, and sweet, but my little 3-year-old was in absolute heaven. It was more than her little 3-year-old heart could have dreamed of.

Pin It!

What did you use to shape the pizza?

Carrie, we just shaped the dough by hand before baking. Sorry, probably not too helpful! :) For the pizza and the cake both, we just eye-balled it.
