DIY decorations


Buy plystyrene and scrapbooking letters and decorate it in the colours of the South African flag. We used the slogan "Oh, baby" and used a bigger polystyrene "O" and "H", which was then painted into the pattern of the South African flag. You can use normal activity or poster paint  or even acrylic paints work.

The activity


Have a cook-off. Supply each guest with a recipe, apron, ingredients and tools to make koeksisters. let the expecting mom try all the koeksisters and decide which one tastes the best.
