Paper Mache Anyone???
Now, my son is very into Star Wars and I was trying to think of a project where they could spend some time doing an art project that they can destroy afterwards. So, I've decided to make paper mache Death Stars that I'll fill with some army soldiers and the boys can destroy them after they decorate them and get a prize inside!!!
Sound good so far? Well, so far so good, but you cannot make paper mache anything in a few hours, so I'm starting the process of making the Death Stars. My plan is to have them primed and ready so the kids need only decorate and destroy...but it is not a quick process to make these things! So, here is Phase I of the project:
I'll keep updating as time goes on so you can see the progress and finished product. I know so many friends who will probably think I'm crazy for spending so much time on a party trick that will be destroyed, but I think my son will appreciate it...and if not, I'll kick his butt! (Okay, not really) I planned this party for 4 hours. I just need to make sure I can entertain this group of 5 and 6 year old kids long enough that they don't destroy my house or each other! I'll bet I can make this art project drag on for at least 15 minutes. What do you think???
