I glued it to poster board, taped it up on the closet door, gave every kid a big self-adhesive googly eye, blindfolded them, twirled them, and let them have at it.
For the big activity, we made:
Here's the craft station I set up:
The bracelets were part of the favors, but here're the rest:
For the play dough favors, I simply hot glued on googly eyes, drew the mouths and x's with a black sharpie, and used white address stickers which I cut out for the teeth. Super simple and cute.
bug was excited to help me stick these self-adhesive googly eyes all over the suckers. He'd been begging for these colorful suckers from Walmart for forever, so I gave in for the party. He picked out each flavor with a cousin or friend in mind.
For the sucker stand, I just turned a shoe box upside down, wrapped the top and edges with tissue paper like I would a present, stabbed some holes in the top with a knife, and plopped them in. Then I put the whole thing in a low basket. Ta da!
And that was pretty much the whole party. It wasn't a huge deal, but it was right after Christmas, so let's face it. This kid gets the shaft.
