I know that for a baby's first birthday, there really isn't much to the party since they can't do too much yet, so I thought "what can I do that will make this party fun and entertaining to the little ones?" and this is what I came up with.
My college art classes finally paid off eh? lol
What I used for this Project:
- Big Cardboard Box (opened and flattened)
- Box Cutter
- Pencils and Sharpies
- Acrylic paints from Michaels and Paint brushes
- Long thin wood from Lowe's
- and Cork screws to cover the screws that poked out.
Drew in pencil first and once I got it looking like the Bubble Guppy I went over it in Sharpie.
Of course doing this with a 10 month old can be challenging, but I had to just go with it.
David just used two tall thin pieces of wood from Lowe's. He cut and made a square that measured the length and height as the cardboard. This was made so that the Cardboard would stand up supported by the wood.
He than used the remaining wood to hold up the square. (See picture above) ^
|Noah helped daddy.|
There were a few screws that were poking out from the wood so we used corks from wine bottles to cover them with.
We are ready to party with the Bubble Guppies!
