When I was  growing up, I had a strange fascination with mermaids.  I was in love with the idea that mermaids could swim around all day and be friends with all kids of wonderful sea creatures – not to mention the fun adventures they could get up to.  All these years later, it seems that I’m not alone, and mermaids are still as popular as ever.  To help you plan a fun undersea adventure for your child’s next birthday, we’ve put together some of the best little mermaid party ideas from around the web.
