The party began with swimming. The great thing about a pool party, is that you don’t have to entertain the whole time and plan game after game. The boys all came up with their own stuff and had a blast.
While the kids swam, I had a couple moms lifeguard for me so that I could set up the “YUMMY” table. I served gold fish crackers, along with all the “fish themed” gummy candies I could find. I used Swedish Fish as the “Catch of the Day,” Gummy Worms as “Fish Bait,” blue Tootsie Rolls as “Fishing Pond” because they’re blue like the water, and Gummy Sharks as “Big Chomper.” To make the labels, I taped little signs I made on the computer with free fish clipart to paper straws. For the cracker fishing poles, I winded a piece of Twizler veins around a straw and tied the end around a Swedish Fish.
