This weekend we had family at the cottage for the July 1st and July 4th celebrations. I want to share the paniata I made for the children.
The cardstock made round yellow eyes which I drew in with a brown sharpie pen. His little wings were also of cardstock. I poked a hole on either side about 2" from the top for the string to help tie it.
We filled him up with party favour toys and candies scrunching additional tissue papers between layers so the candy wouldn't fall to the bottom only. It makes it fun for gathering goodies later on. I glued tissue paper across the top to close the hole.
After we had finished our picnic we hung him up from a rope that was strung over a branch in a tree and held in place by an adult. That way it could be adjusted to the height of the child.
It took the very last and biggest boy to break through and then there was scurrying by the children as they gathered up the goodies.
Our weekend celebrations for Canada's July 1st and the July 4th for the States was a lot of fun.
How are you celebrating this weekend? Judi xoxo
