Hi sweet friends and happy Monday to you!
This post might be a little long but these two games are way fun and super easy to make!
It is mostly photos anyway! I promise it will be worth it!
The Crazy Cans Game was actually the first one I made...even before the Old Fashioned Ring Toss. But I got sidetracked with other projects. And my sewing machine was not working.
So I finally sat down and I FIXED MY SEWING MACHINE!
All my myself!
I have no idea how but I do believe the hand of God moved during that process.
As for the CANS. I simply ate the food in them (wink), cleaned them out and painted them pretty pastel colors. Simple as that. This also took a few weeks time as I used 16 oz. cans of tomatoes. But the family got homemade tomato sauce and a nice chicken and tomatoes crock pot meal out of them. Hooray!
6 of these + Paint = DONE!
Now do you guys know what these are?
They are i-pod nano form fitted socks! Aren't they darling?
When I saw these cuties at the dollar tree about a year or two ago I had to grab these.
FYI: They do NOT stay on your ipod but I knew they would make a cute craft someday. I picked up a couple packs and I am kicking myself for not getting more because I have not seen them around in awhile.
And they make perfect bean bags for my Crazy Cans game.
I grabbed a funnel and a bag of rice and starting filling them up.
You can really stuff these things too!
But I made sure not to fill them all they way to the top so they would be squishy and light.
Then I closed them up with my sewing machine and that's it!
You know that is fun.
The girls got into it!
I think my Ella was having the most fun. :)
I went to the dollar tree and bought a bunch of wooden spoons.
They are all different lengths but that is part of the fun.
I painted them pretty pastel colors but not too neatly. They look prettier distressed.
Then I used washi tape for the handles to girl them up a bit
(There will be boys at this party but it IS a party for girls)
I used Mod Podge to seal the paper on the handles.
So as a family we decided to try out the balloons and made a bunch.
The balloons ended up being a bit big for the spoons so we will make them smaller for the party.
But we had a great war on the front lawn! No photos of that, though. I was armed with A LOT of balloons. :)
But I will share more of my party ideas as they unfold.
I also wanted to let each of you know how much I appreciate you and all your sweet comments. They always make my day and encourage me so much.
I consider you all friends and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you.
