Mini Pinatas

  • A mixture of 1 cup flour, 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon salt OR Mod Podge with a little water mixed in
  • Balloons
  • Strips of newspaper
  • Tissue paper
  • Paintbrush
  • String
  • Blow up a balloon to the size you'd like your piñata to be.
  • Dip strips of paper into either the flour mixture or the Mod Podge mixture.  Remove most of the mixture before placing the strip on the balloon. Continue overlapping paper on the balloon until the entire surface is covered. Leave a small space at the top of the piñata for removing the balloon. Let it dry completely. Repeat. If you want a thick, sturdy piñata, do 4-5 layers. If you're just using your piñata for decoration or as a party favor, do 2-3 layers.
  • When completely dry, pop the balloon and remove it.
  • Decorate your piñatas by layering tissue paper or painting a face.
  • Use your piñatas to celebrate Cinco de Mayo or as party favors filled with candy, treats, or notes.
