How to make the Pinata
It's quite easy to make a Christmas Pinata if you have the time... One balloon, two layers of newsprint, cellulose glue and for the last layer use tissue paper. Then you let the paper mache dry in the sun. Next just pop the balloon and decorate the paper mache shape into something christmassy. We chose Santa....
Note: Do not dry with a blow dryer
I was very impatient for it all to dry so I turned the blow dryer on high. This caused part of the balloon to pop out at the top, breaking some of the paper mache. Thank goodness Father Christmas wears a hat so it was easily fixed.
|Hmmmm I didn't tell anyone I did it....|
|All fixed and ready to hang on|
Christmas Day. A big surprise
for the little girls...
