Instructions FOR PINATA:

JUST A SUGGESTION ABOUT THE PAPER MACHE, 

WE MAKE PINATAS FOR SALE TO BENEFIT OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS! THE EASIEST THING TO USE AS A BASE IS A BALLOON!

USE STRIPS OF NEWSPAPER DIPPED IN THE 3/4 GLUE (1 part flour to 5 parts water...  Boil about 3 minutes and let cool) AND PUT ON THE BALLOON ALL OVER!

COVER AT LEAST TWO LAYERS THICK.(I USUALLY DO THIS PART) LET DRY OVER NIGHT!

THEN THE KIDS DECORATE IT LIKE FISH OR SPIDERS OR ANYTHING THAT THEY CAN COME UP WITH. 

WE USUALLY USE CONSTRUCTION PAPER & GLUE! 

DON'T FORGET TO POP THE BALLOON AFTER IT IS COMPETELY DRY! 

THEY COME OUT REALLY CUTE!  HERE IS ONE OF THE PICTURES WE TOOK OF OUR FISH! 

I THINK YOU CAN SEE IT WELL ENOUGH TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE!

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME,
RAYNA
