We had the big party this weekend! It was awesome having everyone over to hang out for a couple hours, even if a few moments got chaotic. I have a post about the piñata coming up and the only other thing I really did was make a city skyline and a station to make superhero wristbands. For the wristbands I just bought foam sheets from Michaels, cut it into strips, and added hook-and-loop (AKA Velcro) to it. I put out markers and foam stickers and the kids went to town decorating. Easy peasy and the kids all enjoyed it. Of course I didn’t get a picture of the actual station set up. Be patient with me, I’m not good at getting the in process pictures yet. You can see them in some of the pictures below
The skyline was made from three black tri-fold display boards (think science fair) and some yellow scrapbook paper. I looked up an image of the Minneapolis skyline and my husband free handed it on to the back of the display board. I used an X-acto knife to cut it out. If you aren’t careful, the black part of the cardboard can start peeling away. It was easy to cover it up, but annoying once I flipped over the display board looking for my perfect skyline. The other two boards were other cities’ skylines that I just happened upon. Again, Brandon just free handed them. The silhouettes I found online had windows drawn in so I started to copy what they had but then I just went rogue and did what felt right. The clouds are made from regular old tag board. I hung everything using 3M Command strips. It worked great and didn’t leave a mess or take off paint. The city has since been transported to Corbin’s room. He loves it and I was happy not to have to throw it away.
