I can't believe I'm posting twice in two days! That might be a record for me! This post, or craft, has been on my mind for a while, but I didn't make it happen until yesterday. It's inspired by a toy that I had as a child, and it's a great one for the fourth of July so I wanted to share it with you as soon as I got the post ready!
When I was a little girl we went to a hot air balloon festival. I remember the balloons getting ready to take off so very early in the morning. I remember hot chocolate. And I remember this lovely toy that my parents bought me at a craft booth there. It was simple really. Just a bean bag attached to a string with lots and lots of ribbons as a tail. My sister and I would swing it around and around and then let go, making the bean bag fly through the air. It was so simple, yet so soooo much fun. We played with it for hours on end, pretending it was everything from rocket ships to fairy magic.
I've wanted to make one for the kids for a while. Do you want to make one too? It's so simple, I promise!
