As you may have realized, my family is big on celebrations. Not expensive celebrations mind you (since I can't seem to get paid to roam the Internet and look for awesome craft ideas) but fun none the less. This idea came from one of my many MANY hours looking at Pinterest and Craft Gossip (SWOON). 2 ENORMOUS beach balls that I spent hours (no, really...HOURS) coloring with a black permanent marker. My husband hoisted them in to a tree and secured them with bungee cords, which allows for movement. WHALAA!
While it was difficult to hide from the kids due to their size, I did want to surprise them with the actual unveiling. My husband and I snuck out to the chosen tree and stealthily (HA! Stealthily...with each of us carrying a 42-inch beach ball!) assembled the eyes just in time for the bus to drive by! They were quite amazed. And so was the bus driver....
Next year, we are going to attempt a crashed space ship. Wish us luck.
