Madame Sidler’s Party-Planning Guide
- The first thing you will need for your party is FOOD. Cheesy chowder would be perfect for eating during this episode, but there are a lot of other dishes to choose from as well. What about sailor’s pie? Totato soup? Butterbread and blueberry gooeyballs? Hotcakes and bacon? Some of those recipes can be found right here at the site (just click the links!), and others can be found at Mountain Mama’s site (click here). If you’ve got a favorite dish from Aerwiar which we haven’t featured yet, make it and send us the recipe! And of course, being Hollish, I recommend a variety of bibes.
- Decorations! If you’ve got posters handy, those would be great. Or you could make your own posters using our downloadable coloring pages. Anything sea dragon-themed would be fun as well.
- For activities, try making Peet’s sock hands, or your very own treasure map! If after watching the short your partygoers are eager to find out what happens next, print out some coloring pages and let them color while you read from the book. For more ideas, check out our book club kits.
We cannot wait for you to see this short film! There are still a few copies of the DVD available to purchase (although at this point they aren’t guaranteed to arrive by Christmas). And just to stoke your excitement, let’s watch that trailer again. 😉
