Every year I hold a Preschool Prom. It's a chance for the kids to dress up and have a fun night with the family at the library.
This year we went all out. Our theme was "Under the Sea." Thank GOODNESS for Pinterest, or I would not of had as many cool decorating ideas.
Also, Princess Ariel was there! She read to the kids, took pictures, and joined in the dancing.
I used a LOT of plastic tablecloths in our decor. I stuck some blue tablecloths in our ceiling tiles, placing them over lights to create waves.
I then cut out paper turtles, and used die-cut fish to create the feeling that you were looking up from the ocean floor. We also made a backdrop and reading "stage" for our guest reader, Ariel.
My favorite thing that I made were these jellyfish. I used paper lanterns, pink tablecloths and hot glue.
Along the back wall we had our craft tables. We did a simple craft. Using cupcake liners, we had the kids create fish and an underwater scene.
After crafts and a snack of goldfish and cupcakes, Ariel read to the kids and then we did around 25 minutes of dancing.
Ariel was from a newer local non-profit so she didn't cost us anything! This program was held a week after Easter which was a great excuse for parents to reuse their child's Easter outfit.
