Allison McDonald is a former preschool teacher who now spends her days learning with her 3-year-old son and baby daughter. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband and two children.

My son had a good friend's birthday party yesterday and for once I felt so prepared. I had the address googled, I had the gift... oh no I forgot the wrap. I looked at the clock and there was no way I'd be able to pop into any store and not be very very late. So we grabbed the aluminum foil, sticky back foam and a pipe cleaner.

For the eyes we used two large squares and two small ones, the mouth was a rectangle with a zig zag down the middle and the antenna are 4 rectangles stuck together with a pipe cleaner zig zagged and stuck between them.

This was not only a huge hit but a necessity too!
