All you need is an empty Kleenex box. Oh, and cash. Dollar bills. Tape the dollar bills together end to end with Scotch tape. Obviously the more dollar bills the greater the “WOW.” Stuff them in the Kleenex box with just one dollar sticking out of the box. It’s fun to watch someone’s eyes grow wider as they pull out the dollars that go on and on. Make a tag that says: Don’t blow it all in one place. Happy Birthday.
Previous Pinner: I have to say, in all false humility, I have put a fab new spin on a pinata. Single balloons filled with confetti and a few toys and candies. Each child chose one to pop with a pin. Each time was a surprise, and we avoided the crotch-seeking sticks and the cranium-crushing, dog-piles of children diving in at once to retrieve prizes. The balloons didnt always pop on the first try, so when one eventually did, it was followed by squeals of surprise and a shower of confetti.
