Playing around this is what I did.
At Making friends they said to cut the wrapping paper 7' by 4" and the b-line said to cut it 3' by 8".
I tried to cut my wrapping paper 7' but that was just to much paper and it didn't bounce back good and I didn't want something as big as 8" so I went with 3' by 4" and it worked great.
note: if you are going to make a bigger yo-yo you will probably need a 12" wooden dowel.
Then I started rolling it up.
Once I had it rolled up all the way I put a rubber-band around it and let it "cure" for about 30mins to an hour.
All thats left to do is play with it.
Now, not only do we have something for the goody bag but we also have a craft to do at the party. I love it when things can double-up. I just need to go out and find some Asian style wrapping paper and we are all set.
more Chinese party ideas to come...
