Before relocating back to Australia from the UK, Jessica’s daughter Sadie wanted a birthday party with the theme ‘Octonauts meets Frozen’. Jessica was forced to get creative, so she and her mother wrote a story to help tie the two themes together.
Sadie’s guests received an invitation which read: ‘I will take the children on a trail and tell the story of how Sadie and her friends come to have a very different adventure, winding up under the lake in the Kingdom of Arrendelle and then later a magical banquet.’
The party was set in the lush, sprawling backyard of Sadie’s grandparents’ house and lasted for three hours. Once all the guests had arrived, a letter came from the Octonauts, asking Sadie and her friends for help. There had been a massive storm over the Kingdom of Arrendelle and all the water creatures’ homes had been destroyed. The Octonauts had a list of things they needed Sadie and her friends to collect.
‘We then took the children on a hunt through the woods with their own little boxes for collecting feathers, pinecones and leaves from the forest floor,’ said Sadie’s mum, Jessica.
‘We planted four letters at various points along the walk. At the end of the walk, the Octonauts thanked them for their help and invited them to a banquet. They all had a magical time.’
