Make your own Piñata
Looking for the perfect way to stop your kids smashing up the house? Here’s our step by step guide to making your own Piñata.
STEP 1: Assemble your equipment
- tissue paper
- and lots of treats to put inside!
STEP 2: Make the paste
Mix one part flour with one part water to create a paste.
STEP 3: Blow up your balloon
Make sure you cut your newspaper into thin strips ready for the next step too.
STEP 4: Cover the balloon with your paper strips
Dip the newspaper strips into paste, squeeze off excess and apply to the balloon. Cover the whole balloon at least two or three times then leave to dry for 24 hours.
STEP 5: Get painting!
Paint the balloon in your chosen colour. Once dry, gently pop and remove the balloon.
STEP 6: Decorate your balloon with colourful tissue paper
Top tip: cutting the tissue paper into strips and fraying the bottom is an easy way to add texture to your decoration.
STEP 7: Add the final touches
Fill with treats and sweets, hang it up – and get smashing!
