    Great idea from FamilyFun reader Kim Fuglestad of Wrightstown, PA: Last year, my 8-year-old had a mermaid-themed party. For favors, Nicolette wanted to make a mermaid tail for each guest. I wanted the tails to be both practical and washable, so I came up with the idea of making them from beach towels. I added Velcro tabs to one end of the towel so that it could be easily secured around the waist. To create the flukes, I wrapped two ponytail holders around the bottom.

      beach towel mermaid tails--velcro tabs and ponytail holders--I got the towels for 5 bucks from Target. Instead of velcro tabs I used towel clips. We added pink flower leis for each girl. They used the towels to dry off and took them home as a party favor. :)

      mermaid beach towel tails This is one of our all-time favorite reader ideas, from reader Kim Fuglestad. To make each mermaid tail, she attached Velcro tabs to one end of a beach towel for fastening, then made the flukes by wrapping two ponytail holders around the bottom.

      Towel Mermaid Flukes - A party favor that really makes a splash - Put Velcro tabs to one end of the towel so that it can be easily secured around the waist. To create the flukes, wrap two ponytail holders around the bottom. The mermaid tails can be easily disassembled to use as towels or to be washed.
