Being winter with rather wet weather about, we decided to maximize party space indoors by not having a table and chairs for the kids to sit at. Instead we decided on cushions, which could then be used to play musical cushions and also be taken away as party favours.
We got a bunch of cushions from Harvey Furnishings, zebra patterned flannelette from Spotlight (both hugely reduced) and made simple envelope-back covers. Easy peasy.
All the kids got a Zebra tail attached when they arrived, which they got to take home too. A Zeal of Zebra's in an instant!
Very simply made from some zebra fleece, fake fur (the Anzac sale at Spotlight saved us a fortune!), and safety pins that were zig-zag stitched onto the tails. Again they didn't take much time at all - bonus!
Haivng mums email and tell us that the tails were worn for days, cushions slept on, and both items taken to kindy/school for "news" was just delightful. Made the little extra effort so worthwhile - both on the day and beyond!
How're your holidays going? Have you been able to make anything - with of without the kids?
Cant wait to see!
Have a great Thursday everyone!
