Birthday Party Highlights: Pirates and Mermaid Party Silly Face Posters

Make your next birthday party extra fun with DIY Photo Props! 

Another popular activity at our Pirates and Mermaids party
was taking candid photos with these two foam core posters I painted to use as photo props.
One mermaid and one pirate with holes for the faces cut out!

Because it's paper coated foam core,
it's very light weight and guests of all ages
could hold them up and have their photos taken!

Enjoy the photo gallery of a few of our favorite mermaids and pirates!

One of my BFFs from College and her sweet baby boy....

Favorite Niece!

Frog Princess Mermaid.

Grandpa made the best pirate face!

Witness Protection Pirate
(or is that the Unabomber?)

Daddy feels pretty when he's a mermaid.

Aaaargh...That be all me hearty's!

You are the coolest mom ever! What a fantastic idea! By any chance (I'm totally serious by the way) have you ever illustrated a children's book? Would you be interested? I'm working on self-publishing a book that I need an illustrator for. Email me!
