Piñata Party!

Our Piñata Party was awesome today! All the kids arrived at 11:00am and just minutes after they arrived all of the fun began. I first started off by asking them if they knew what a piñata was. All of them answered yes, but not everyone had been able to break one before, and none of them had ever made one from scratch before.

Once I told the kids that we would be stuffing a monkey piñata full of candy and prizes, then we were going to break it open, and then everyone was going to get to make there very own to take so they could break it with their families excitement filled the air.

Sweet Monkey Piñata!

Up to Bat!

Taking turns hitting the monkey.

After we broke the monkey and everyone got tons of treats and prizes we were all pumped to make our own.  All we needed to make piñatas with was a cardboard cereal box, a big bowl, white glue, water, and a whole bunch of newspapers.  With all the supplies set-up we were ready to go.  Check out one of the kids having fun dunking the newspaper into the glue and then dripping it off before plastering it onto her cereal box.


With just an hour of drying, some paper mache, and some really creative kids, below is just one example of what we made.

Good Job lil monkeys!

Sponge Bob and an Easter Egg!  Looks great!
