I am so so so excited about the next couple of posts coming up! Follow my blog so you can see what's coming! (Just a little teaser, they are related to Avengers birthday party ideas!)
First of all, I am very happy to have my camera back :). Note to self: do not leave an expensive camera on top of papers on the edge of the table, because when a toddler wants to grab those papers, everything comes crashing down. Totally my fault. I am guilty.
Anyways, my son's birthday isn't until November, but since we are moving in two weeks (AHHHH!!!), we decided to do an early birthday party for him so he could celebrate with friends and family one last time, and the party was yesterday! I have been SO excited about this party. I love planning things like this, and I love to be able to use my crafty skills :) If you've been following my blog, you may remember I did a post about letting your little ones make their own Captain America Shield, well, after making that shield, and playing super heroes, I think it might have just kept the super hero obsession burning bright :), because my son requested an Avengers party!
Warning: There are lots of pictures ahead! I really did miss my camera...Also, guess how much it cost me to make this pinata...anyone? Nothing! 0! Zilch! What made me really happy was I had all these supplies at my house already, (except the cardboard box, I had to find that, but it was free!)
Supplies you'll need:
- cardboard box
- a thinner box, ex: cereal, pop can, etc.
- duct tape
- tissue paper
I thought this was going to take forever, so I started it a few days in advance. It only took like an hour and a half TOTAL, and that was with 'my little helper' helping me.
Ok, here we go:
First cut out 2 identical shapes of what you want your pinata to be. (As you can see my box has black paint all over it, that's because I've been redoing furniture, I will post that later!)
Glue the stars on top of each other, and the front is done!
