The kiddos and I got pretty creative over the holidays thanks to Pinterest and so old ideas we had and reinvented them like these Santa Beard Kits we first did at Eco's "Christmas in July" themed third birthday party, poor Santa had to endure the 100+ degree weather that day. But what great memories we have of all the festivities!
First you'll need to get the bags of cotton candy(any flavor) they can purchased at any local grocery store, Walmart, ect. or you can rent a machine at your local party supply store. Since I have a commercial size Candy Floss cart I made ours by hand.***
Next I made the paper tags with brown wrapping paper and stamped the front and back then stapled the tags to each bag of cotton candy.
Makes a pretty simple and fun gift or party favor. They kids really seem to enjoy play and eating them!
***Fresh cotton on rainy days only last 2 hours before shrinking and 5 or so hours on regular dry days But of course it was raining the day we made ours so I made them right before we went out to deliver them. ***
The kits can be made ahead of time if you're using pre-package cotton candy.
And finally let the kids have fun with it!
P.S. Don't forget to take photos of their creations.
