Okay what better way to spend two weekends than making your very own pinata?? Here is what we did.
the ripped newspaper into mixture and wrap around the balloon. You're
going to want several layers (as we learned later my husbands 20 for
Mickey Mouse was too many). When you're done wait for it to dry. Ours
took about a day and a half, but with school and work we had to wait
until this weekend to finish.
morning I sketched out Mickey Mouse's face and then spray painted the
parts I needed to black. With peach acrylic paint we painted his face
and let him dry--2 1/2 hours. When we came back from Sunday shopping I
added his eyes, nose and mouth. Let him set while we ate lunch.
we cut a hole in his head and added some candy, because what is a
pinata without it?? Attaching the string was hard. We actually had to
put a hole in the front and one diagonally in the back of Mickey's head
to get him to hang.
Then the girls took a whack at him. It was a sweet victory! and a lot of time I kinda wasted trying to make him look juuust right, lol.
