Hey guys! I have an extremely fun project to share with you all that I did with the kids a few days ago.
Summer holidays are upon us and the days seem never ending at times. I for one go extremely stir-crazy if I don’t have a few projects lined up to tackle. While I was working on something else, this idea just popped up in my head to make loads of confetti and then let the boys go wild with it.I mean since confetti is something that instantly gets throws up in the air and then its lost forever after that instant, I wanted to have a TRUCKLOAD of it for them to play for as long as they like and however they please. I also wanted to have the material, colors and size of my choice (not a fan of that shiny, tiny specks of confetti).
Making confetti is one of the easiest things to do, specially for someone like me who borders on OCD and gets such a kick out of doing things in a precise, perfect, systematic way. The best couple of hours i ever did spent, haha.
All you need is a few sheets of crepe paper, colors of your choice. And good quality scissors. And then just go nuts with the cutting. I am a creature of habit so I had to cut each sheet the same way in the same size which I am also showing below. I was surprised to find how much tiny confetti pieces I created with just one crepe paper sheet! It really was a lot. A couple of sheets in a few colors of my choice gave me TONS of confetti! I really was so happy with the result. Such bright, funky, colorful confetti! I m pretty sure i m gonna make this the next time i m having a party and just throw some on the floor and other random surfaces cause look how pretty!
And now I apologise in advance for bombarding you with confetti photos of my kids.
At the end of the session, my cousin came and i took a couple of photos of her too. I wish she had come sooner and I could have a girl in the photos too.
Seriously, how pretty?! I won’t be getting over these photos any time soon 😉
I would highly recommend doing such easy yet so fun activities with kids. Just let the kids be kids for a while and enjoy the pretty mess (oops).
If you are interested in taking confetti photos of your kids or yourself, and need some help with the camera settings and location to shoot, let me know in the comments and I would be happy to share my thoughts on it.
Until next time. xx
