A Mermaid Parade for Munchkins



Anyone going to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade this weekend? Lucky you!

Although, if you have a munchkin at home like these little ladies, I’m guessing the answer is no. Sadly, despite its name friendly name, the Mermaid Parade isn’t exactly munchkin-friendly. Hello tattooed bearded lady! Did you paint that bikini all by yourself? 




So for everyone who can’t make it to the parade this weekend, for whatever reason, I thought it might be fun to make some mermaid hats.

I heart hats. I heart craft foam. Tada, a parade is born!

  4. So easy and lovely! Those stickers are super cool, and of course I can see doing all kinds of themed hats this way. A craft is born! And I think the netting really makes it extra mermaidy.

  8. I went to the mermaid parade yesterday and despite all the nudity, it was quite family friendly. There were several kiddie mermaids IN the parade, including a little girl on 15-ft tall stilts, carrying a parasole that read "It's my birthday!" She was pretty amazing. There were also at least 3 pregnant mermaids, but that's another story.
