I love to plan birthday parties around cool craft kits that my kids have seen on TV or that their friends are talking about school. My daughter Lili has been talking about Beados for a long time, so I thought it would be fun to create a craft birthday party, using Beados as our theme!
Spy party activity: make a faux bomb. Using a Styrofoam sphere and a 2-liter bottle cap, I spray painted them with black chalkboard paint (don’t use regular spray paint as it will disintegrate the Styrofoam…lesson learned). Glued the bottle cap and a skein of red yarn to the sphere…and there you have Defuse the Bomb. I cut the length of the yarn to about 50 feet and had the kids literally tangle themselves up with it. The one who got the end of the “fuse” (aka yarn) won a prize.
