One of my boys just turned four and we had a great time preparing for the party. I was reminded again about how so much of the enjoyment of celebrations is in the anticipation and preparation.
Then you just slather the mix onto your strips of newspaper and slap them on the balloon. This was one of my favourite activities when I was growing up. I am amazed at how often my mom let us do paper mache, because it is most certainly one of the messiest crafts out there!
All in all we had a great celebration and it was an added bonus that the cake and pinata turned out :)
