I did it! I blew up a balloon , taped on newspaper cones for sun rays and covered the whole thing with paper mache. My three year old, (now 4) loved helping. Then we painted the whole thing yellow and both girls helped decorate it. I added streamers from each of the cones and my husband rigged up some sort of wood and wire way to hang it up. We hung it from a tree and hit it woth a kiddie broom. It was a HUGE hit! The biiger kids- the five year olds- helped the little 3 and 4 year olds. I had filled it with wool balls, bean bags and other non- edible goodies. When it broke open I had all the kids collect the goodies and put them in a basket so it could be evenly sorted into their goodie bags to take home. It was great!
THanks for your help! I love this community!
