Pinata Projects

Learn how you can make pinatas in all shapes and sizes! They are often found at Mexican celebrations and are now commonly used at birthday parties. Pinatas are usually hung in the air and children are blindfolded and take turns swinging at them trying to break them open so the candy and toys inside spill out. Try making your own pinata at home using the ideas shared here.
