My son's birthday is coming up in the next month. As I'm trying to get everything handmade, homemade, and save from buying expensive activities that are going to be destroyed in a matter of minutes. I've never made a pinata, just decorated it. Since, the party is lego-themed, I decided to take a small cardboard box, painted it, and decorated it. I was going to use a glue gun, but decided last minute to use school glue instead, because the glue gun was too hot for streamers.
A cardboard box
Streamers or Crepe Paper
Martha Stewart "Fringe" Scissors (optional)
Pick your desired box, paint with your color acrylic paint of your choice. Let dry for at least 6 hours. Check to see, if paint has dried and secure with boxing tape. Cover in newspaper. Make fringe and wrap pinata. Decorate to your liking. Let dry for a couple of days before you make the holes or trap for stuffing it with candy. Use wire to hang.
