Make these awesome jet packs for each guest at the party:

1. 2 two-liter soda bottles filled with “styrophome peanuts”
2. Attached bottles together with several different colors of tape
3. Straps are made with duct tape.
4. Cut an X at the bottom of each red pastic cup (need 2 per pack)and attach to the spout of the bottle upside down. (I used hot glue.)
5. Tape red and orange tissue paper (inside the cup) and cut ends to look like flames.

    What a wonderful, modern theme for a birthday party! Very creative! What were some of the comments of the birthday child and guests?
    When my children were younger I enjoyed having their birthday parties at our house and was inspired by a creative friend of mine who was a kindergarten teacher. It was fun to come up with ideas and my children enjoyed adding their ideas and planning their party. Thank you for the excellent photos and descriptions and directions. Congratulations!
