First I made gift bags with a Life Preserver on them (cut from the cricut), the bag contained a bookmark, a titanic book and some life saver candies.
The book we gave:
The bookmark (you can get a printable sheet of 4 HERE), I laminated them.
I got these sailboat kits from Oriental Trading that they put together and painted
Melt the ice game
Playing with the boats in the raft pool, filled with icebergs (I froze big blocks of ice in large ice cream tubs)
The Cake, I used this desk kit from Amazon
Pin the iceberg on The Titanic (I cut the titanic out on my cricut machine)
I also wanted to play throw the life preserver game, having them toss a pool inflatable ring over some cones, but I couldn’t get cones. So we just used dive rings and sticks.
