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
- newspaper, cut into 1” x 3” strips
- 2 cups flour
- 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
- 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.
