Well as of today, my friends, this Mum knows that - given enough time (six days, to be exact) - strips of newspaper, glue, and paint can make a newly minted 5-year old and his friends very, very happy.
Red Bird piñata, inspired by this blog post.
Now... chocolate cake mix, food dye, marshmallows and fondant? With a little time, they make EVERYONE happy!
You know, it has to be said: as much as I love it (and y'all know I do), knitting sweaters ain't got nuthin' on knowing you made something totally awesome for your son on his special day.
