Everyone’s favorite clown fish is Nemo from Finding Nemo! – This is an excellent alternative for your child’s party theme, particularly if he like fish. A father fish searches for his missing son in the film Finding Nemo. The search for the best children’s birthday party ideas has come to an end for parents. Nemo is a cute fish with a cute theme that is suitable for youngsters aged 3-6.
With these fun Finding Nemo birthday party ideas, you’re sure to have a WHALE of a time!! To begin with, there is a bewildering array of Nemo party materials and party sets. But don’t be concerned. You won’t have to scour the internet for hours looking for the best offer.
Whether Dory, Marlin, Squirt, the seagulls, or Nemo himself is your child’s favorite ‘Finding Nemo’ character, throw him or her an under-the-sea celebration with our Nemo Party Ideas! We’ve thought of everything, from invitations to party favors, to ensure that your event is a success!
This amazing water gossamer is possibly the best (and cheapest) party investment you’ll ever make. It comes in three different watery patterns and may be used to coat furniture, walls, ceilings, tables, and other surfaces to change them into a cool ocean quickly and simply.
Cut out the shape of a boat’s underbelly from brown bulletin board paper (or a refrigerator box) and hang it from the ceiling. Hang a poster-board anchor from the boat with a rope. A fishing rod with a fishing line and a plastic worm swinging from it should also be hung from the boat’s side.
To create the appearance of being under the water, hang teal, royal blue, sea-green, and light blue crepe paper streamers of varied lengths from the ceiling (you can glue cut-out fish to the ends and middles of these strips).
Only fish shower curtains, dolphins, sea stars, and seahorses are available. You can buy a few and use one as a doormat while the rest are used as tablecloths.
Consider the following ideas for décor to give your guests a true under-the-sea experience:
- Cover the ceiling, walls and floor with blue transparent cellophane wrap to give the impression of being underwater.
- Set a bubble machine in one corner of the room.
- Hang plastic toy fish from the ceiling using a clear fishing line.
- Fill fish tanks or fish bowls with water and add plastic fish, crabs, and starfish
- Place groups of stuffed clown fish, angel fish, starfish, and sharks in the corners of the party area.
If you use fluorescent lights, cover the outside of the lights with blue and green crepe paper to give the space a watery effect. You can also purchase blue and green light bulbs to utilize throughout the house to create an under-the-sea atmosphere.
If you’re throwing your Finding Nemo party during the day, another good approach to achieve this look is to buy blue and green cellophane paper and cover all of the windows in the house, allowing the blue-greenish light to fill the space.
Keep food fare simple, especially for this age group. Just do not serve fish sticks!
Put small signs on each just to make sure everyone understands that they are munching on real sea foods:
- Submarine sandwich
- Fish-shaped tuna sandwiches
- Pasta shells
- Seaweed pasta (Green linguine)
- Fish sticks
- Tuna casserole
- Shrimp dip
- Under-the-sea fruit salad
- Jellyfish sandwiches
Finding Nemo Birthday Invitations
If you want to take this idea a step further (since the invites will be delivered by hand), laminate the tag board after writing to make it waterproof.
Then, in a clear sandwich bag half-filled with water and blue food coloring, sand, and small shells, float it. The bags can then be glued with a fridge magnet for the guests to use on their refrigerators.
Another option is to roll up the invitation and wrap it in green seaweed (green raffia or ribbon) before placing the message in a clear container. For a more realistic sea look, add roughly 4 tablespoons of sand and small shells.
If you don’t have much time to do so, simply put these free printables from Drevio. These designs are eye-catching. Your guest will be glad to receive it.
You’re almost done once you create the invitation and fill out the information (guest of honor, date and time, venue, etc.). We’ll assist you in sharing your free online invitation on social media or sending it via email. Select the option that works best for your visitors, and keep track of the RSVPs as they come in.
Because the film is about fish, there are plenty of squirt/water toys available. While these are fun, make sure to inform parents ahead of time if they will be included in the party favors or activities. No one wants to pick up Jenny from a party in her soiled and drenched party attire.

Play Pin the Fin on Nemo
