Let’s Get Personal.

We like small, cute things. It’s a scientific fact.

So if we have personal pan pizzas and personal watermelons, it makes sense to make personal piñatas.

Get ready for a fun project that is a great lesson in process and patience

Personal Piñatas.
You need:

  • balloons
  • newspaper, cut into 1” x 3” strips
  • 2 cups flour
  • water
  • large bowl and spoons
  • acrylic paints and paintbrushes
  • fun items to go inside…

Back to our list:

  • tissue paper, cut into 2” x 2” squares
  • Elmer’s glue

How To:

  • Blow up your balloons and tie.
  • Place flour In bowl and slowly add water and stir until you form a paste mixture (not doughy and not watery).
  • Dip a newspaper strip into the mixture and apply it to the balloon.
  • Repeat until you’ve covered the balloon except a fist-sized circle at the tied end. You’ll need this space when it’s time to fill the piñata.
  • Let dry and repeat. Let dry and repeat.
  • Once your piñata is completely dry, it’s time to paint it. Let dry.
  • Once dry, pop the balloon. It makes a cool sound when it’s separating from the sides of the piñata.
  • Fill your piñata with the fun items you’ve chosen.
  • Apply glue to edges of opening and cover with tissue paper.
  • Continue gluing on the tissue paper until completely covered with six layers.
  • Let dry.
  • Once dry, decide on your method of busting open your personal piñata.

Some things are worth waiting for. A personal piñata is definitely one of them.
