Under the Sea Party Foods

10 great snacks, desserts, or appetizers to serve at an underwater or “under the sea” party!  So if you’re planning a little mermaid, fish, or any other ocean party, this list is perfect for your party!

Under the Sea Party Foods

Last week I share with you one of the kids’ favorite crafts for our VBS this summer. Today, I thought I’d share some of our snacks!  The theme of our VBS was submerged so all the food was under-water or beach themed.  Our snack lady (who is also my friend) went all out this year!  The kids loved the snacks & so did the adults!

These are pretty self explanatory but I’ll put what you need for each one or a brief how-to and a couple of them I’ve provided the link to the recipe.  Hope you enjoy these water-themed snacks!
