So I had the brilliant idea, "Hey we can make them ourselves, have fun together and save some money and not only that... it would give them the opportunity to learn to appreciate what goes into making these things."
When we got home (after spending $50.00 on the supplies), things went great... they were all into it, and boy what a gluey mess it was! By the time the their whole balloon was covered and set out to dry, I found myself alone doing the glue and paste stage of round two, three and four thinking to myself, did I honestly think they would have lasted this long, who's idea was it to MAKE these things and not only that.... 2!!! Why 2 why couldn't we just have made 1? We began this project at 3:30 in the afternoon and it is now 10:15 p.m. and we just completed them!
They loved decorating them and I think they turned out really well, but I tell you this... I will NEVER make another pinata again! No wonder the one at Wally world cost what it did!!!! I am the one that appreciates what goes into them and now it is all me that gets to clean up after a 5.5 hour adventure!
Here is the fruit of our labor!
