I decided to make my own Pinata as I could not find any pineapple pinata's anywhere.
This cost me a total of under $4 to make!
It was a fun activity to do with the kids, done in small lots over a week to allow for drying time.
|Blow up a good pineapple shaped balloon and secure to a heavy mug with tape. Tear up paper, dip it into the glue and cover the entire balloon with 1 layer of the paper.|
|I looked up several recipes for the glue, some involved complicated cooking. In the end all I did was mix some pva glue that I already had with water, about 50:50.|
|After that 1st layer dried, the following day we repeated this step to a total of 3 layers. If I ever make this again, I would only do 2 layers as it turned out a bit to hard to smash open as quickly as the kids would have liked.|
|Once this was very dry, we cut it of the cup, which left a perfect size opening to add the tropical themed lollies.|
|Then we added the string and green cardboard leaves cut with serrated scissors. Then hit away.|
The pineapple pinata was an absolute hit! (Corny pun intended). Lou xo
