Litke String Party 2012

If you are new to my blog you may not know about our annual String Party.
It is a New Year's tradition that began when I was in grade school
and we've continued to celebrate it with our own kids!

This year was no exception!
I can't even imagine the images Alethia was trying to conjure up 
as her siblings tried to explain this strange phenomenon.

Here's what you need to do:
Scavenge all your $1 spot and $1 Stores all year.
Then divide it up among all the participants.

Assign each participant a color of yarn.

Find the perfect place for the party.
It must be spacious and out of sight until the big release.

String the yarn up in a web-like fashion.
The messier the better:)
Close-pin the $1 store delights on each participants designated yarn strand.

Have the kids grab a bag and GET READY!

Tell them what color they are.
(and explain the rules to any new comers)

And let 'em loose!
(you may need to make it more challenging for the older participants)

Watch as their faces look in wonder at all their new-found treasures!

Here's to another successful year of string party scavenging:)
