Simple Ways for Your Kids to Enjoy Mermaid Fun
When the new Disney Little Mermaid movie was announced, I found myself thinking about some happy times from my youth.
My little sister LOVED the animated version of that movie based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale. (I have to admit that Flounder and Sebastian are adorable!). In fact, I’m surprised our VHS tape of it didn’t get worn out by how many times she watched it over and over as a little girl. She was all about that mermaid magic!
