Surprise ball party favors

I made surprise balls for my kids’ third birthday party. Surprise balls, for the uninitiated, involve a series of small toys wrapped in a long, long strip of crepe paper to form a ball that is unraveled to release those toys.

The surprise balls were filled with stickers, dinosaurs, star-flecked superballs, and finger puppet monsters. I wrapped, turned, wrapped, tucked and twisted the crepe paper until all the goodies were tucked inside. They were closed with double-stick tape and stickers. I avoided candy and confetti-type messes because I figured most of these would be opened in my house.
