Go figure Isaak kept running off to blow up more balloons, letting them go, and spit was flying places (ewww). The noise of the balloons going places was bugging me.
There was not much help from the little people that day. Evan stayed around to watch me, and all the other kids ran all over annoying me. Also Travis AKA Dad was on his phone talking to the rental car people. He kept saying to me, "Can you keep them quiet please." I felt like yelling, Go outside on the porch to talk to the rental car people. He was talking on a cell phone. Finally I said with gluey fingers pointing, "Go outside!"
It's funny when a kid craft project is going on. They were all picky about the colors of their embroidery floss. Then they came in from outside and all said, "Can we pop them now?" I said, "They have to dry for a day. I heard a bunch little voices saying, "Awww!" My nephews were worried they wouldn't get theirs back. Humm...remember I was the one pretty much doing them all?! I assured them they would get them back at the family function the next day.
My boys did end up popping them on Easter. Isaak's was more glue | water and embroidery floss. Mica's was more cornstarch | water and embroidery floss. The colors in Isaak's was easier to see. Mica's was stiffer, and will hold up better. I imagine an even mix of both would be great. I didn't put candy in them. You can. I just kept them plain. I didn't buy a lot of candy this year. I sent my nephew's home with my sister to pop at their house.
