Create a Fisherman’s Lunch
While you don’t need to serve lobster rolls or freshly shucked oysters to little tykes, you can still make the menu seaworthy and kid-friendly. If you’re serving lunch, fish sticks or tuna fish sandwiches are natural choices; for an extra touch, use fish-shaped cookie cutters to cut sandwiches into fishy shapes. Most kids like mac and cheese; make some with pasta shells for an allusion to the sea. Lastly, round out the meal with a few veggies like carrot and celery sticks and Goldfish crackers for snacking.
A nautical theme is a rich source of inspiration for games and activities. One fun option is a live-action game of "Go Fish." Cut bamboo garden stakes down to size, tie on a length of string and hot-glue a powerful magnet to the other end of the line. Then, cut fish shapes from heavyweight paper and affix a paperclip to each one’s nose. Place the paper fish in a bucket or empty kiddie pool and let the kids “fish.” For younger children, inexpensive plastic toy boats floating in a wading pool would also provide entertainment. With older kids, you could show them how to fold origami boats and then float them after they have been made.
