Pinatas, Pinatas, Pinatas!

Pinatas have become a tradition at my children’s birthday parties.  They love them and all of their friends always look forward to them too.  There are great ideas for pinatas other than just the standard traditional one.

These mini pinatas from One Charming Party are a great idea for party favors or a small celebration.

Here is a great idea for the summer heat!  What about a water pinata?!?!

I love these mini pinatas from The Sweetest Occasion that were placed on each place setting for a wedding dinner.

Gather some flat white sacks and painters tape.

Print one copy on draft setting on a piece of copy paper (good way to use up scratch paper).

Now position the bag over the image.

Secure sack to paper with blue painters tape. (You can reuse this paper and tape over and over to print more bags)

Run this page through your printer. On my desk top printer I place it face down with bottom of sack placed in first.

Cut your sandwich into an apple shape to make lunch extra special.

A yummy lunch with a special message!
